DESCRIPTION

Is "Joy-Building" the secret to raising mature healthy kids?
 
Joy-filled kids aren't always happy kids, but they do know how to work for and wait for what is truly satisfying in life. In The 4 Habits of Raising Joy-Filled Kids you will discover a tool box full of skills that you can use with your children to help them grow in maturity and live with greater joy.
 
These tools help your kids, from infants to teens, build skills like:
 
  • Regulating upset emotions so they can return to joy
  • Forming a stable identity that doesn't change with each new emotion
  • Developing discernment to distinguish between what is satisfying & what is only temporarily pleasurable
  • Discovering heart values & not just living to please others
  • Building "joy bonds" rather than "fear bonds"
The skills you'll learn in The 4 Habits of Raising Joy-Filled Kids will not only help you parent your children well, but they will also help you grow joy in your family.
 
 
 
Praise for The 4 Habits of Raising Joy-Filled Kids
 
"If we were created for joy, & if every relational system in the world is modeled, ultimately, after the family, then who would not want to know how to raise joy-filled children who themselves then go on to be conduits of that joy in every institution they occupy? In The 4 Habits of Raising Joy-Filled Kids, Chris Coursey & Marcus Warner give us a gem of a book that not only will change how you parent but also bring deep, lasting hope to all of your relational interactions. Read this book prepared to work. Read it prepared to be changed. But mostly, read it for the joy that is waiting for you as you do."

"The journey from infancy to maturity is one that no child can make alone. Children need parents not merely to provide but to support and guide. But who will support and guide the parents? Marcus Warner and Chris Coursey have a keen understanding of the developmental needs of three-year-olds, thirteen-year-olds, and thirty-year-olds. Not only insightful but eminently practical, The 4 Habits of Raising Joy-Filled Kids is a primer every parent should read."

"Chris Coursey and Marcus Warner approach parenting from a different perspective than any parenting book I have read. In The 4 Habits of Raising Joy-Filled Kids, they hold up a worthy goal: raising children who are motivated by relational joy instead of fear. My one critique of this book is that they didn't write this book twenty years ago when our kids were young. If you are a parent or if you know a parent, this book is a gold mine. I'm already counting how many copies I plan to give away."
