In our hearts we know this life of hurry-scurry does not serve us well. Nor does it serve our children who are developmentally unprepared for life in overdrive. Our children have simple needs: To be loved, to be listened to, and to be directed and protected. We are their models, however imperfect. This is a powerful and awesome responsibility!Author Colleen Reynolds combines her years of teaching and school counseling experience to examine the often-chaotic life of the average American family. In today's fast-paced society with its ever-increasing demands on our time and energy, parents are rushing from one place to another, striving to earn a living, create a home, and have a life. But our hectic lifestyle is taking a profound toll on our children.For a Child with Spirit offers a no-nonsense approach to help parents take control. Reynolds suggests several ways parents can manage their time and emotions as role models to their children. With these insights, family time can improve, as well as the lives of children-at home, at school, and in the community.
