Don’t let your kids settle for good enough.” A Christian home-schooling pioneer and his adult son, co-author of the young adult bestseller Do Hard Things, advocate a revolutionary approach to parenting.
 
You probably already know how challenging it can be to make your kids do hard things. But when you raise your kids to be self-motivated—from the heart—your job as a parent gets way easier and their lives become way more exciting.
 
As the father of seven, Gregg Harris has seen this prove true in the lives of his kids, and in Raising Kids to Do Hard Things, he and his adult son Brett show how you can raise self-motivated kids who embrace challenge and find delight in preparing for productive, meaningful lives in the real world.
 
The road-tested principles in these pages will help you
 
• Make learning a delight, not a drudgery
• Raise producers, not just consumers
• Encourage creativity by limiting distractions
• Launch your children into meaningful adult lives
 
For parents of children aged preschool and up, and with a chapter devoted specifically to the tween and teen years, this guidebook will equip you to raise kids who take initiative at home, at school, and in their community.
