By James B. Stenson
Compass summarizes the lessons and experiences of parents to help them succeed as leaders for their children.
Author and Educator James Stenson relates thirty years' experience with parents who have lived as great leaders in family life and have succeeded with their sacred mission: to raise their children right.
How they did it and why they did it are the focus of this book: forming character, countering the consumer culture, understanding discipline and dealing with the influence of mass media. In Compass, he shares his insights about leadership in family life and how this parental guidance is vitally important.
