My babies are growing into beautiful and successful young adults right before my eyes. But as any mom knows, raising responsible kids takes a lot of work. I didn't always know what I was doing, so I turned to the experts.
The best resource for helping my children take responsibility in their lives has been Have a New Kid By Friday, by Dr. Kevin Leman. He teaches you how to change your kids' behaviors in literally five days! The biggest takeaway for me was B doesn't happen until A happens. That means that the serious, important, mandatory stuff (homework and chores) gets taken care of before the fun stuff (playtime and parties).
