This book will walk parents through the important aspects of a parenting plan, offering practical tips and strategies aimed at keeping their family anchored to important family values and beliefs that will redirect them when the tug of popular culture pulls them off course. An accompanying compact disc helps individuals "get to know" the author as they listen to him tell his own powerful story, including the tragic death of his son and his rollercoaster ride with God, and hear his dynamic presentation of the book's highlights. The CD can be used as an introductory preview to the book as well as a helpful and convenient "refresher course" for busy parents of preschoolers to teens.
