Mark and Jan Foreman, parents of Jon and Tim Foreman of the multi-platinum, GRAMMY Award-winning band Switchfoot, focus on challenging readers to rethink how they live out the primary purpose of parenting in Never Say No: Raising Big Picture Kids.
Never Say No is the story of the process of learning to parent. It encourages parents to examine the way they parent, especially in the ways they encourage spiritual and creative development. People of all faith backgrounds will find wisdom in the book, with an emphasis on whole-child learning while encouraging talents, dealing with the ever-prevalent media, and making choices and allowing mistakes.
"Never Say No" is a bold statement, and comes from the idea of saying yes to your child as much as possible to encourage and make time for them. It can be a powerful challenge, especially when we have our own priorities, but this book makes it seem possible.
I have a chance to give away a copy of the book. To enter, leave a comment with the area where you would most like to learn to say yes to your child more. Deadline is May 15th.
