Book Spotlight~ "Power Parenting in the LDS Home" by Randal A. Wright

“When I’m a parent, I’ll never…” Using the responses of over 500 LDS adults, Dr. Randal Wright developed this book on how to avoid the 25 most common parenting mistakes so you can become the extraordinary parents you want to be!

Why this book appeals to me! ~ I am the mother of four children.  (Enough said!)  I know that I am by no means a perfect parent, nor will I ever be.  I can use all the advice that I can get.  I love to read the experiences and wisdom of others and incorporate ideas into my home.

On the back of the book the bullet points are:

  • Being available during critical times in children's lives
  • Making the home a place of fun and laughter
  • Building a strong marriage and setting an example of how marriage works
  • Using balanced and consistent discipline with children
All four of these areas appeal to me.  I haven't had a chance to read the book, but it is at the top of my list.

About the author: Randal Wright has been fascinated by the study of families for many years. Seeking ways to raise righteous children led to his receiving a B.S. and M.S. with emphasis in the family area and then a Ph.D. in Family Studies from Brigham Young University. He worked for many years as an Institute director for the Church Education System and taught at BYU in the religion department. He has written several books in the past on family topics including Families in Danger: Protecting Your Family in an X-rated World, Building Better Homes and Families and The Case for Chastity: Helping Youth Stay Morally Clean. He has spoken across the United States, Canada and England and has been a frequent speaker at BYU Campus Education Week and the Especially for Youth program for many years. Randal and his wife Wendy live in Austin, Texas and are the parents of five children and sixteen grandchildren.
