Item Description...
This book shows parents how to teach their children relational and personal management skills they will need to be good marriage partners, including personal responsibility, decision making, communication, and money management.

Publishers Description
They're growing up faster than you'd ever imagined. Before you know it, high school will be behind them. Will your children be ready for the complex choices and responsibilities that await them as adults? Parenting authority Dr. Bob Barnes believes the time to prepare children for successful public, personal, and private lives is now, while they're at home. How? By giving them a 'learners permit' : opportunities to develop the skills, experiences, and characters that will help them become good decision makers, good marriage-partners, and good communicators, employees, and money-managers -- and godly individuals whose Christian faith runs deep. In Ready for Responsibility, Dr. Barnes steers you beyond fearful and passive parenting styles to become a 'training parent.' Complete with practical questions and exercises, here's how you can give your children one of your greatest gifts as a parent: the means to succeed in life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent book -- practical, insightful, challenging!  Mar 27, 2007
Parents, this is an outstanding book, valuable for everyone wanting to raise helpful, well-adjusted children who are ready to work and relate to others in a meaningful and significant way. Barnes is great - straight shooter, practical, and humorous - and he drives home his points with excellent examples and poignant stories. He talks about everything in this book - from teaching children responsibility with money to sex and tons of stuff in between! Barnes uses what he calls the ICE principle - Instruction (clearly telling children what is expected), Consequences (holding them responsible for falling short of the standard established) and Experience (allowing children to begin to "cut the grass" and make decisions for themselves).

I have also had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Barnes present this same message as part of a CD series ordered from his ministry's web site - the 4-disk CD series is entitled Positive Parenting and is available at and is an excellent tool, especially for those unable or unwilling to read the book.

One of the fundamental elements of this book is its focus on communication - the parent's ability and willingness to openly communicate with their children and a child's ability to communicate effectively with his or her peers. Barnes addresses the issue of emotionalism and its adverse impact on communication head on and helps the reader see conflict as opportunity instead of tragedy. Barnes writes not only from personal experience, but also drawing wisdom from God's Word and does a great job of making parenting the high calling that it is! This is a wonderful resource and tool for parents.
Great Book and great insight  May 4, 2002
I heard Bob Barnes at a parenting conference. I bought this book and read it in a short time (it's not a long book). This book gives you such straight forward ideas on how to to prepare your children for the responsibility of the real world. He shows you by example how to lay out what is required and what the consequences are and then how to follow through in order to put the responsibility on your child. It then becomes your child's choice. It eliminates nagging and issues of punishment because they is no was already decided, you just need to follow through.

Definitely read this and "Who's in Charge" if you want to raise responsible children who respect you as their parent!
