Kid-Tested (and Tested, and Tested…) Guidance for Parents in the Trenches.

The Inside Track to Raising Kids.

Most of us find raising one, two…or maybe three or four children to be challenging enough. The idea of parenting a half dozen seems almost crazy, and more children than that-impossible. But Pat and Ruth Williams have together raised (and are continuing to raise) nineteen kids. More importantly, theyve not just survived the process-theyve loved it!

What do they know that the rest of us dont? What does it take to make a family of any size not only work, but thrive? After bringing up nineteen kids-as biological parents, adoptive parents, single parents, and step-parents-Pat and Ruth Williams have gained a volume of insights and experience that will enrich your home, strengthen your family, and help you be the parent you want to be. Inside youll find counsel that really works-whether youre raising one child, one dozen (or more), or any number in between.

Review:

"Yes, the Williamses really do have 19 kids. 'You should see mouths fall open and pupils dilate when we drop that bombshell on unsuspecting new acquaintances,' they write. It's actually worse than that: a few years ago, 16 of their kids were teenagers at the same time. Thank heavens they lived to tell the tale and share some of their wisdom in this short book. (When would they have found the time to write anything longer?) Pat Williams, senior v-p of the Orlando Magic basketball team, and his wife, Ruth, a consultant with the Franklin Covey company, talk about the blessings and burdens of their parenting experience. Theirs is the ultimate blended family: they have biological children from previous marriages, as well as more than a dozen kids adopted from several different cultures. The book has a strong Christian message woven into its sensible lessons on discipline, decision-making, and teaching children responsibility."
