Raising Able by Susan Tordella

Raising Able describes how to enlist 2-to-22-year olds in contributing around the house.

Young people will feel a sense of belonging, while learning responsibility and self-discipline. Chores nurture self-esteem and develop competence while giving the adults a break from being the family servants.

Cleaning toilets, doing dishes and sweeping the floor counteract entitlement. Learn more positive parenting strategies to have a calmer, more harmonious home, written by a mother of four who has coached other parents in workshops for nearly a decade.
