Every parent wants their children to be extraordinary – to stand out in the crowd for their accomplishments and character. Everyone wants to raise uncommon kids.
I’m no different.
But raising uncommon kids takes uncommon effort. It’s not something that happens over night, but something that happens over a lifetime.
Common parents, like myself, need a roadmap to help us develop uncommon children. Thankfully there is one.
The Bible gives us a great many clues in how to raise our children to be uncommon in this world – to be people who care about others and live selflessly. The catch is, our children won’t become develop those character traits that we would like to see in their lives until we, as parents, start to model those traits for them in our own daily living.
Raising Uncommon Kids gives many helpful suggestions on how we can help our children become the people we want them to be.
It starts with us.
The greatest lesson we teach our kids isn’t anything we say–it’s what we do.
Many parents are surprised to discover just how little we’re actually modeling the behaviors we hope to pass on–qualities such as unconditional love, gentleness, forgiveness, patience, gratitude, humility, and more. This unique book offers a fresh way to look at molding your children: by focusing more on adding good behaviors than on eliminating bad ones.
Grounding her advice in Scripture, Sami Cone shares stories from her own life to show these principles in action. And she outlines practical things you can do right now to create a home and family that exhibits love, harmony, and generosity of spirit in a self-centered world.
