Sure-Fire Ways to Point Kids to Heaven A fresh approach to real life parental challenges, Parenting Is Rocket Science lays down humorous, practical, and easy-to-follow guidelines that really work.

Beth says, "Today's family is under attack. My goal is to deliver ammunition that will help parents to rear obedient and enjoyable children." 13 chapters with questions, suitable as a class study book, gift book, or self-improvement manual.
