How do we build strong families in a world that threatens to tear the very fabric of the family apart? This guide provides parents with a 3-step program to improve family communication and give children a sense of consistency and security. These simple steps are: a family legal system, a family economy, and family traditions. The plan allows parents significant opportunities to praise and reward their children, while promoting open communication. Linda and Richard Eyre, authors of the No. 1 national best seller Teaching Your Children Values, have 9 children of their own.
