Item Description...
Overview
To outsiders, the Kuharski family life sometimes looked like controlled chaos. With 13 kids - seven by birth, six by "airport" (adopted) - it sometimes felt that way to family members, too. There were those vacations when the entire family jammed into one motel room. There were the excuses: "Kari told me she wanted her hair cut that short." "Dominic told me the cement was dry." "Tony said that Grandma said there wasn't any poison ivy in that area." And, from a child playing with matches in the basement: "I didn't know the newspapers would catch fire so quickly and spread to the paint cans." There were the challenges of adopting special needs children and the heartbreak of watching some of those children fail to adapt. Through it all, by the grace of God, much prayer and lots of common sense, the family became an oasis of stability and love.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Rules Are the Rules  Mar 22, 2006
The author, president of ProLife Across America and a member of the National Council for Adoption, could easily have written in the style of Bill Cosby or Erma Bombeck, but she did not. Her mission is not to entertain but to share her ideas about the Christian vocation of parenthood and how they played out with 13 children, seven of whom were adopted, and several of whom were disabled.

In a series of short chapters based on examples from the Kuharski family experience, the author offers practical and philosophical advice for maintaining a prayerful attitude and imparting solid Christian values to children from their earliest years through the teens and into adulthood.

In the chapter "The Rules Are the Rules," Kuharski shares more than 20 rules she and her husband developed for dealing with their teens and young adults. They address such issues as curfews, schoolwork, dating, telephone use, finances, safety, and family relationships.

In "Do I Get a Trophy? she shares her view that parental attendance at every event in which a child participates is neither helpful nor healthy. "Kids need to be free from undue pressure, and know it's not the end of the world if they fumble, fall or foul out. But when parents interrupt their working schedules to attend an event, it becomes more than a game, and the kids know it."

Woven throughout the book are the challenges this Minneapolis couple have faced over the years: how they responded to veiled criticism when they chose to adopt yet another child; their efforts to discern God's call, especially in terms of adding to the family; and the difficult decision to "let go" an adopted child who, despite patience and perseverance, became a threat to the family.
