What is your parenting style? As a Dad, do you train your child mostly by example, by instruction, or through counseling? Are you more effective with your child as a guide, a judge, or a spiritual leader? How can you identify your true gifts as a Dad? In Twelve Training Gifts: How Fathers Train Children, D J Young reveals in clear, everyday terms the qualities in your parenting that can best develop your child's character. By specific examples, the results of each style in the lives of young children, teens and adults are examined. Even the casual reader will come to a better understanding of how to make the most of his own unique, God-given fathering style. However, the biggest rewards await the thoughtful, studious reader looking for deeper insight. Through study of the topical training objectives, Dads will learn how to implement their special gifts with positive results. Take the Training Gift Questionnaire and discover how your gift can most benefit your child.
