Based on the knowledge gained from raising their own family, the authors detail principles and real-world experiences that any family—no matter the size, economic status, or cultural background—can use to develop a respectful, compassionate family. Single or new parents, and even those with experience, benefit from topics that include teaching values through example, instilling a love of learning, raising respectful and responsible children, and learning to celebrate the uniqueness of each family member—helping them understand the challenges, demands, constancy, and joyful benefits of parenting.


"This family is remarkable not only for its sheer size, but also for its determination to fight off the erosion of traditional values in today's fast-paced world. They are raising not only good students but children with good character."  —Ladies Home Journal
