Authors H. Stephen Glenn and Jane Nelsen are real people with real answers. Each of them is a parent with many children. They know that parenting in today's self-indulgent society is not easy. As renowned educators whose seminars are attended by over 250,000 annually, they offer a fresh and common-sense approach that has struck a special chord in the hearts of parents and teachers everywhere.Those who think in terms of leniency versus strictness will be disappointed. This book goes beyond these issues to teach children to be responsible and self-reliant -- not through fear and intimidation, which are outer-directed concerns (what happens when the disciplinarian is on vacation, or asleep?) but through the maturity of feeling accountable to one's commitments (inner-directed behavior).About the Author
