Don't let your kids settle for 'good enough'. A Christian home-schooling pioneer and his adult son, coauthor of the young adult bestseller 'Do Hard Things', advocate a revolutionary approach to parenting.'Raising Kids to Do Hard Things' is about nurturing self-motivated kids with the drive to succeed on their own and for God's glory. Contrary to the commonly held perspective that immaturity, irresponsibility, and rebellion are inevitable, the authors show how it's possible to inspire children to embrace challenge and find delight in preparing for productive, meaningful lives in the real world. Based on road-tested principles for parenting children aged preschool and up, and with a chapter devoted specifically to the tween and teen years, this guidebook will equip you to raise kids who take initiative at home, at school, and in their community.Rather than seeking ways to make your children to behave better, you'll learn how to inspire them to do the right thing, even when you're not around. You'll gain insights for how to help them move beyond simply avoiding bad behaviours and instead actively seek out good, hard, worthwhile things to do. When you approach parenting not as the filling of buckets but as the lighting of fires, you begin to shift age-appropriate responsibility for their success on their own shoulders. As a result, your job as a parent gets way easier and their lives get way more exciting.
