My Review


We all want a happy family, right? If your family is struggling with time management issues, communication, or any number of things, then you might want to have a look at this book. There are some good and practical ideas in here, including job charts for the children, how to carve out family meal time, family meetings, etc., which are all good things. The author gives examples of various business models and how to modify them to work in the home.  If you would like to try something similar, then this book is one you should read.

For me personally, I don't feel like they are some kind of secret on how to have a happy family, though. There seemed to be a lot of emphasis put on ‘doing it right’, too. After 30 years of parenting, I’m not sure there’s any right way or wrong way for a family to do some of the things mentioned in this book.

Overall, there are helpful tips to be gained from reading the book but as in any how-to manual, you take what you can personally use and discard the rest.

I appreciate Litfuse & Thomas Nelson for providing me an ebook for review purposes. I was not required to write a positive review, just my opinion of the book, which I have done. The blog tour schedule can be found here
