As a parent, you know how much less stressful your life would be if you could count on your children to be more responsible
-for their toys, their homework, their household chores, and their choice of friends.
You know you want your children to grow up to be responsible adults. In Teaching Your Children Responsibility, bestselling authors Linda and Richard Eyre show you how to make sure your elementary-school-aged children learn this invaluable lesson.

They provide a simple, practical program-with enjoyable exercises, games, and activities-that you can use to teach your children these important concepts.
Written by parents for parents, Teaching Your Children Responsibility will help you give your children the tools they need to thrive in today's challenging world-and help them grow up to be happy, fulfilled adults.
