Break the Cycle of Nice Parents Raising Nice --but Weak--Kids Today's children are more worried and fearful than children of previous generations, and well-intended parents are raising some of the culture's wimpiest kids. Overprotective mothers and fathers teach their kids to live passively; kids, in turn, become less and less able to make decisions, to strengthen their minds, and to cultivate courage--upon which, wrote C.S. Lewis, all other virtues depend. Paul Coughlin, father of three school-age children, longtime youth soccer coach, calls parents to bring up sons and daughters who will live out the whole spectrum of the abundant life Jesus came to give us. These children will not only know right from wrong, they will also embrace the integrity and courage to do what's right. Insightful and practical, No More Jellyfish, Chickens, or Wimps will challenge you to spark a change for good in your children.
