Summary

For more than a decade, Matthew Kelly has been traveling the world inspiring people to become the best version of themselves. During this time, he has been amazed at how regularly he is asked: How do I encourage my children to embrace this message? How does your message apply to a family? Now, for the first time, Kelly shares with us remarkable insights and sensible everyday strategies for transforming the family into what it should be: a place where each of us can become the best version of ourselves.

In Building Better Families, Kelly explores important issues by raising evocative questions: What makes a successful parent? Do you realize that your children are in the middle of a cultural war? What are the five things children really need? Are you asking your children the right questions? What are you teaching your children about work, money, food, exercise, body image, and sex? What are the priorities of your family culture?

Allow this book of classic wisdom and practical insight to help you build a better family and raise amazing children!

Powerful

This book is powerful and addresses our current culture and the need to always work on ourselves. We were made to be parents and we can learn how to navigate parenting in a more whole fashion. A must read for anyone who is in or has a family.

A gift to parents

This book is a must read for parents who know they have a difficult job raising kids at this most difficult time and want to be better. I am still a little overwhelmed at the major shift that I feel I will need in my family but Mr Kelly reminds us at the end to implement a few changes and then more and more. I want my children to be the best version of themself and I want that for myself too. This book puts these challenges in perspective and offers solutions for helping shift my mindset, habits and routines to make this possible.
