What People are Saying
"As I have read and reread the concepts of this book, I canít help but be changed in my attitudes and awareness of how I am interacting and responding to my own teenaged child. It is a gift from God that is right now helping to shape our conversations in the midst of some very serious, life-altering decisions. I am realizing how crucial my supportive questions are to the health and direction of my daughterís choices and actions. Itís not the easiest course I have taken, but it is by far the most effective."
Connie DelaMorandiere

"Greg provides tremendous insight to the fact that children are not seeking independence from their parentsí as we sometimes think, but rather from our limiting parenting style! This is a significant breakthrough concept for parenting. Gregís practical advice makes connecting with your child realistic and attainable. This book is backed with biblical insights that will save and strengthen your relationship. A must read for all parents no matter the age of your child." Nick & Michelle Allaire, 2 children

"This is a marvellous tool for parents that I wish I had read when my children were young. As a mother of two adult sons, and with a background in social work/psychology, I had come some ways toward this approach to parenting (as opposed to the child-rearing practices of my parentsí generation), but I could certainly have benefitted from the clear guidelines Greg gives us in the coaching model. I feel this will be a blessing to any family where these principles are applied!
Lynn Quinn, BSW mother of 2 adult children
