Your Family Constitution: A Modern Approach to Family Values and Household Structure

We recently received a copy of Your Family Constitution: A Modern Approach to Family Values and Household Structure (Spectrum International Press, January 2010), by Scott Gale, to review.

Product Description
What do you get when you cross two working professionals, two active kids and a dog? Chaos! For more than a decade, Scott Gale and his wife, Karen, juggled three bowling bowls- kids, personal needs, and careers. Clear and consistent expectations simply did not factor into their frantic lifestyle. In the wake of a Mother's Day family meltdown, Gale took time to evaluate his family's challenges and induce change, piecing together a powerful tool to restore family harmony. This 'Family Constitution' became the catalyst for clarity, consistency and commitment ('3C's), enabling his family to enjoy mutually understood boundaries and much-needed structure. Your Family Constitution shares Gale's innovative parenting tool and, more importantly, reveals the step-by-step process he went through to become a happier and more effective parent. He guides readers through the rewarding process of creating their own custom Family Constitution, while sharing many hilarious and personal accounts of parenting successes and failures. Your Family Constitution is a life-changing technique that parents can easily apply to make their own families stronger.

I really did enjoy this book and I love how it offers a realistic way to help families build a harmonious household. The personal stories from the Scott really help parents to feel as if they aren't alone juggling act! This is a totally practical resource that all parents should own. I liked the fact that it provides specific examples to help you teach us constructive relationship problem solving. The book was easy to read and the cartoons were hilarious!

If you are stressed out with all the pressures of juggling work and family life then this is a book I'd highly recommend to you. I think every parent can gain something from it!

Thanks so much to Phenix & Phenix Literary for providing the book for review!
