[RECOMMENDED] My Home Is Not A Democracy: 10 Commandments for Parents Who Refuse to Compromise their Children’s Future – by Joseph B. Woodley
I must warn you before you open the pages of this book; this will not be a “softball” or “appeasement” or “politically correct” book. The systematic strategy for dismantling and destroying the family unit and the God-given potential for greatness we each carry within us is no longer knocking at your door. We can no longer take the posture of back- seat drivers; reacting as if we are helpless kidnapped- passengers being dragged along for the ride by an oversized bully, incapable or unwilling to make the choices necessary to maintain the character and integrity of the home. Whether you are a two- parent home or a single- parent home, the choices we face are still the same. We can either choose to fold up our tents and raise the white flag of surrender or we can choose to stop complaining about everything that is wrong with the world and fight. If you want to win and you refuse to compromise the future of your child to a world bent on promoting the worst in your child instead of getting the best out of them, then keep reading. ‘My Home is Not A Democracy’ draws a line in the sand, offers sound strategies for effective parenting and challenges every reader to stand your ground and fight for the future of your families.
