Father, The Family Protector

Jim Stenson explores how Fathers exercise their powerful and particularly masculine contribution to family life. He explains the main obstacles in today’s society that undercut a Father’s teaching role, and tells men what they could do to overcome them. Within this framework, he spells out how successful Fathers deal with their children in the more crucial areas: family rules, discipline, schooling, sports, recreation, the media, and ongoing teamwork with one’s wife. In short, this book provides the guidance that will help any Father to carry out a serious responsibility – that of protector of his family.

Parenting for Character – Equipping Your Child for Life

In this book, Andrew Mullins argues that parents need to help build character: it does not just evolve. He explores how to encourage young people to think independently and make choices that are good for themselves and others. In his experience, young people are damaged by too readily accepting their peer group’s values or messages from the media. They are able to take control of their lives once they acquire well-developed habits of thinking, decision-making and acting. The book draws on parenting principles from classical times to the present and offers advice from many sources including Plato, Aristotle, Plutarch, Confucius, Cicero, Goethe, Winston Churchill and John Paul II.
