RAISING CHILDREN WITHOUT GOING INSANE

JANE EVANS

Nonfiction

September 2007

Whitaker House

ISBN # 9780883687246

Anyone who has been a parent knows the difference between those who know and those who wish they knew how to successfully raise children into decent adults! And they also know the never-ending funny, fearful, sorrowful, and never-ending challenging days that fill the life of a parent. Parenting punctuated by sanity or insanity? Jane Evans gets to the heart of the matter in such practical, spiritual and forthright examples and advice, you'll be amazed. This is definitely an aha book for both soon to be parents and those who are parents now.

Topics include how to deal with the child who is a warrior or worrier, who is different or lacks confidence, and more. The principle spiritual realities woven through each chapter are aptly described by the author as "...'God moments' scattered liberally throughout their lives, starting at a young age..." Biblical examples and applications abound as well to guide a parent in those unsure moments, but emphasized with repetition in different ways rather than banging it into the heads, hearts and spirits of one's children.

Constant prayer, letting go and real discipline flesh out so much more filling these wise words from one who has obviously lived her advice.

Very nicely done, Jane Evans! This is a book to relish and to share with family and friends for sure!
