Reviews - What do our customers think?
GREAT BOOK!  Jul 23, 2000
"The Ties That Bind" is an exemplary book. It is filled with rewarding guidelines that should be used daily. "The Ties That Bind" is a drawing force to what once was an accepted way of life and guidance in our families.

Dr. Ladner has touched upon some important aspects in the rearing of our children. As Proverbs 22:6 notes, "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."

For those who read "The Ties That Binds," you will understand that indeed there are values in life and we should want to instill these worthwhile values in not just our children's lives, but we should make sure they are embedded in our own lives.

"The Ties That Bind" is a rewarding book. It is a book worth reading. A book worth sharing with our friends and loved ones. "The Ties That Bind" is extraordinary!

Dr. Joyce Ladner's book is a must read for all parents.  May 23, 1999
Dr. Ladner's book is an excellent presentation of ways to keep the family together. The traditional values that families imparted many years ago are essential today and must be called upon to deal with the negative impact of environment. This scholarly written book is inspirational and compelling. Dr. Ladner has effectively outlined strategies to help all parents deal with the difficult task of being a parent. I would encourage all parents to purchase this book and share the many lessons with family members and children.
A superbly written, thought-provoking and seminal volume  Mar 2, 1999
"I just don't understand..." is the lament I've heard muttered over and over by the family and friends of many middle-class youth who have gotten into serious trouble in school, with the law, with drugs or who just seem to flounder hopelessly without any sense of direction. Whether this comment is uttered in reference to someone who is in his or her early teens or who is a young adult, a common thread exists. Invariably, the youth are bright and have parents who have gone to great effort and considerable expense to provide every social, cultural and economic advantage they could afford for their offspring.

In The Ties That Bind, Joyce Ladner has bored right to the core of the problem. She has identified the critical mistakes that we have made in our drive to provide our children with everything. What we have not always provided, though, are those "timeless values" that our parents drilled into us. In this dynamic book, Dr. Ladner doesn't just point out the problem - drawing on her own experiences, she has been able to supply concrete examples and explicit directions for raising self-assured and fully functioning youth. This is a must-read book for every parent!

A beautiful thought provoking read  Jan 13, 1999
The Ties That Bind is a timeless book that couldn't have picked a better time to be published. If one is looking for a title that deals with tangible yet spiritualy based bits of wisdom, lessons for family bonding and other ways to combat the growing feelings of isolation and moral decay in our world, this title is a must read that will be cherished and handed down from generation to generation. If you are black, white, male, female, married or not, The Ties That Bind will have a message for you in its pages.
