Practical insights and suggestions cover every parenting stage, from infancy to adult. Application is supplied through reflection questions and a survey to assess the reader's parenting style. Relationship-Empowerment Parenting is the key to forming bonds with children that will transcend and outlast the negative cultural and peer forces rampant today.
