Book Jacket:

Instead of tuning in to Super Nanny or Nanny 911, pick up this humorous yet biblically-solid book of parenting advice. Kendra Smiley, author of High Wire Mom and Aaron’s Way, once again hits on a subject that moms and dads are longing to hear–how can I be a better parent and raise great and godly children?

With wisdom gleaned both as parent and teacher, Kendra suggests seven proactive choices parents can make to help reduce family stress and avoid parenting emergencies. Each chapter ends with a dash of advice from her husband, John, who offers a dad’s point of view. Whether exhausted and struggling or just longing to improve their skills, Be the Parent is the perfect resource for moms and dads seeking to positively impact their children. Includes survey responses from real parents.
