Item Description...
Today's children are more worried and fearful than children of previous generations, and well-intended parents are raising some of the culture's wimpiest kids. Overprotective mothers and fathers teach their kids to live passively; kids, in turn, become less and less able to make decisions, to strengthen their minds, and to cultivate courage--upon which, wrote C.S. Lewis, all other virtues depend.

Paul Coughlin, father of three school-age children, longtime youth soccer coach, calls parents to bring up sons and daughters who will live out the whole spectrum of the abundant life Jesus came to give us. These children will not only know right from wrong, they will also embrace the integrity and courage to do what's right.

Publishers Description
Paul Coughlin gives parents good news: They can raise assertive and confident children. While showing parents how to avoid over-parenting and how to instill the virtues of toughness, wisdom, and courage, he paints a clearer picture of the real Jesus, not just the meek-and-mild side often presented to children. By shaping confident and virtuous children, parents are giving them the tools to live a happy and more abundant life--no matter how old they get.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent parenting book  Aug 9, 2007
I heard about this book from the Dr. Laura website (big fan!) and I'm in the middle of reading it. So far, it's proven to be a wonderful tool in parenting - it includes extensive information on bullying. I'm learning a lot of the signs and strategies about bullying - how to identify it, what to do, etc. There's also a Christian basis to a lot of what Mr. Coughlin writes about that helps ground his theories and advice.
Good, but not his best.  Jun 7, 2007
I bought this book the day it was released. As a recovering Christian Nice Guy, I try to glean whatever I can wherever I can. This was a pretty good book, but frankly, I liked No More Christian Nice Guy better. To tell you the truth, I may have to read this one again to understand it better. It may resonate better with me the next time around. Sure, it talked about bullies and victims, but I didn't see much raw advice on how a kid should stand up for himself should he get bullied by some other kid at school. In Coughlin's previous book, No More Christian Nice Guy, Coughlin, who's a soccer coach, gives some life-giving advice to one of his boys on his soccer team who was being picked on. Coughlin gave him some raw advice on physical self-defense should this boy be confronted by the bully again. i didn't see any examples like this in his most recent book. I wish I did see some examples like that one. Like I said earlier in this review, I'll probably have to read it again in order for it to really resonate with me. Things I saw in this book that I liked was it did encourage children, Christian in particular, to be more willful and assertive. He also wrote for kids to be more adventuresome and for parents to stop being so overprotective. I like how he wrote how parents should make it a point to raise more confident and less timid kids. Don't get me wrong on what I wrote earlier, Paul Coughlin is for self-defense, let it be emotional, verbal, or physical. I think you should also read No More Christian Nice Guy if you're going to read this one. I still think this book is a blessing not only for Christian parents but also for parents of kids with learning disabilities i.e. autism/asperger's, and various forms of LD, etc. I like how COughlin wrote about how to spot and repell adult predators. I like how he wrote about how he didn't correct one of his boys for not wanting to approach a relative who was in a foul mood. I do like how this book encourages parents to raise kids to be more assertive, which I think is a very useful skill for kids.
