Lessons Kids Need To Learn by David Staal

Lessons Kids Need To Learn by David Staal is a relatively small book, but don't let is size fool you.  It is filled to the brim with amazing wisdom for parents!  The book teaches parents 6 lessons that kids need to learn before they reach adulthood.  These truths help kids to develop good character qualities and helps to ensure your children live successful lives relationally.

Each chapter focuses one one truth.  But each truth is two-fold.  The lessons taught in this book are:  Believe That You Matter/ Live Like Others Matter More, Appreciate Those Who Serve You / Make Serving Others a Priority, Forget Unimportant Stuff / Remember Life Has Consequences, Be A People Person / Be Your Own Person, Find Your Unique Fit / Find Out You Can Fail,  and Always Speak Up / Only Speak The Truth.  In each chapter, the author explains the truths that needs taught and gives you practical steps in order to teach it to your child.  There are also stories from the author's life as well ass quotes from children who have grasped these truths. 

As a parent myself, I often feel overwhelmed and clueless as to what things are most important to instill into the lives of my children.  Being a parent is anything but easy, but this book should be on every parent's bookshelf in order to make it just a bit easier!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for this honest review.
