The question Mark and Jan Foreman are most often asked is: How did you raise your kids?
Mark and Jan Foreman’s adult sons Jon and Tim Foreman of Switchfoot have influenced their world not only by a successful music career but also through their positive impact on communities around the globe. The Foreman parents instilled in their sons a belief that they could make a difference by living beyond themselves.
This powerful book gives readers an inside look at the process. It begins with both parent and child finding their identity in God. It then explores practical ways to encourage holistic learning while cultivating specific gifts, nurturing creativity in a media-saturated culture, and balancing structure with individual choice. Never Say No inspires readers to raise children to live in the wonder of life by loving others well. Parents will find encouragement for their own parenting journey as they guide their kids to live out God’s purpose in radical ways.
My opinion: When I first got this book I was a bit skeptical about it as never saying no is not something you would think is a good idea in a parenting book and yet when I got the book and began reading it I found it to be a very insightful, wonderful book and loved how it focused on teaching ones children to live beyond themselves which is exactly what the Foreman's appeared to have done. I really enjoyed this book and feel like it would make a great addition to anyone collection. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
