You'll find practical suggestions (for the "beginner" and the "expert") to bring your family closer to that honoring goal.

by G.K. Chesterton
Chesterton is the most quoted modern writer, and for reason. He's written on everything with a style that's deep and light, witty and somber, humorous and convicting, poetic and prosaic... With Chesterton , I laugh and think.
In Manalive, Chesterton's childlike, enigmatic, and optimistic Innocent Smith restores the joy of being alive. This wierd fugitive, of sorts, interacts with "serious" folk (doctors, reporters...) whose dullness and cynicism contrast to his folly. Yet isn't Innocent Smith the cleverest of all: he knows the joy of daily life and how to keep it from getting dull. Readers, it's contagious.
by Dr. Kevin Leman
He's funny and the subject is intriguing. Birth order affects personality, marriage and relationships, parenting style, career, and children!

An "ah ah" book that helps parents identify character traits common to oldest, youngest, and in between.

Try and pass on the magnitude of the D-Day embarkment. Eyewitness D-Day features interviews with more than 50 survivors and presents the harrowing inside story of June 6th, 1944, through the eyes of the courageous men and women who actually witnessed the fighting.

Appreciative Inquiry is a change management approach that looks at what works well. Instead of focusing on the conventional question, “What is the problem?” AI explores the successes and the circumstances that make for these positive accomplishments. The prevailing goal is to identify how to make those great moments happen again. If an organization did it once, it can do it again.
Your and my home is one great organization. Sure, we all have challenges and a few bloopers. We have reasons to be proud too. Hammond’s Thin Book (only 63 pages) makes Appreciative Inquiry clear. That’s the first step to applying AI at home!
by Dr. Gary Chapman and Dr. Ross Campbell
We think we're loving our kids, but they don't seem to act like they're feeling loved. Yikes! Chapman and Campbell introduce five different communication styles which communicate love and respect: physical touch, affirmation, gifts, shared moments, and acts of service. Your love language may be different from your child's. Discover your child's primary language and learn what you can do to effectively convey unconditional feelings of respect, affection, and commitment that will resonate in your child's emotions and behavior.

by Raymonde Carroll
Raymonde Carroll presents an intriguing and entertaining analysis of the many ways French and Americans—and indeed any members of different cultures—can misinterpret each other, even when ostensibly speaking the same language. Cultural misunderstandings can arise even where we least expect them—in our closest relationships. (That’s why we received this book as a wedding gift!)
The revealing vignettes sensitize the readers to fundamental differences in French and American presuppositions about love, friendship, and raising children, as well as using the telephone or asking for information.
Cultural Misunderstandings is NOT the absolute guide to why the French or Americans are weird. It is an effective tool to develop awareness of cultural differences and to replace annoyance (“Why is she so ______?!”) with understanding (“Could that behavior stem from a cultural difference?”)
