$19.99

Paperback
A workbook for parents of school-age children (6-12) that accompanies the book Raising Great Kids. The goal of parenting, according to the authors, is to build biblical character into their children.

- Publisher A workbook for parents of school-age children (6-12) to accompany Raising Great Kids, which is a joint project of authors Henry Cloud, John Townsend and Mothers of Preschoolers International (MOPS). In Raising Great Kids, Henry Cloud and John Townsend approach parenting from the perspective of their unique theological and developmental system, and MOPS provides the hands-on application. Most Christian approaches to character building focus on obedience to God and on moral functioning, but the authors will show how biblical character includes competent functioning in other areas such as relationship skills, responsibility and follow through, self-control, perseverance, delay of gratification, ability to lose and grieve, and the ability to forgive. Most resources for parents emphasize either structure and moral functioning over love, safety, and security or vice versa. Raising Great Kids provides a balance between these two parenting approaches.

Henry Cloud

Dr. Cloud is a clinical psychologist with a unique ability to connect with his audiences. Drawing upon his broad range of experiences in private practice, leadership consulting, and media, he simplifies life's issues and gives easy-to-understand, practical advice. It is Dr. Cloud's humour, compassion, and 'in the moment' confrontation that make his approach to psychology and spirituality such a success.

He has written or co-written 19 books, including the best-selling Boundaries. His most recent books are Integrity, Necessary Endings and The Law of Happiness. He has earned three Gold Medallion awards and was awarded the distinguished Retailers Choice award for God Will Make A Way.

In his consulting practice, he works with leaders of organisations and corporations, from family-held firms to Fortune 25 companies and non-profit organisations. With his extensive executive coaching background and experience as an organisational and leadership consultant, he speaks regularly at corporate and leadership events held across the United States and internationally.

Dr. Cloud co-founded a health-care company that operated treatment centres in 35 cities in the Western United States; he served as Clinical Co-Director for ten years. In that context of hands-on clinical experience, he researched and developed many of the treatment methods and principles he communicates to audiences today. Since then, he has devoted his time to spreading principles of hope and life change through speaking, writing, and the media. His books have sold over four million copies.

He is a graduate of Southern Methodist University, having earned a BS in psychology with honours.
