''Gist'' is a powerful book that reviews and examines what the journey to adulthood entails, along with a clear look at those parenting efforts that have proven not to work over the years. ''Many hours and much emotional energy are spent in parenting strategies where nothing positive is produced.'' ''Gist'' is a fascinating look at many aspects of life that wouldn't typically be associated with parenting. But, the result is a new way to think about parenting that is effective, efficient, and enjoyable. The book's focus on life-readiness offers parents a new lens through which to see their parenting interactions and translates to an approach that eliminates many of the power struggles and ineffective patterns that can rob families of much of their joy.

Customer Reviews

I'm a dad with three grown children and read this book after hearing the authors on the Focus on the Family broadcast. While my children were growing up I read a variety of child rearing books, but this one is by far the best. Reading it I could recognize mistakes I had made with my own children, and even gained perspective on how I was raised. I am buying several copies to give to friends and relatives who are in the middle of child rearing now.
