Teaching Your Children Responsibility Reviews

    I'll be honest, I didn't get very far. I was kind of turned off by the impression I got that teaching your children responsibility = teaching your children to be tidy. I'm sure there's more to the book if I had kept reading, but I feel that responsibility encompasses SO MUCH more than that. My favorite parenting book is still "How to talk so kids will listen and listen so kids will talk." That books addresses ours and our children's utmost responsibility -- to be respectful.

    Though I was never disciplined enough to follow through on many of the practices written in this book, its teachings did influence me...all of our children can work.As a teacher, I see hoards of youth who are NOT taught to be responsible, nor do their parents exhibit the characteristics of responsibility from which the children can learn by example. This is already having MASS social repercussions on our society as a whole. As more and more children grow up in households were there is no responsibility and more and more politicians shun preaching personal responsibility to their constituencies, afraid to lose their base of voters, we find the economic structure of American descending into mediocrity, while, around the world, countries where parents DO teach their children "duty" and "responsibility" for Self, Family, and Country are seeing growth never known in those nations. Every politicians should have to swear to uphold the Constitution of the land, while their hand rests on the Bible...and this book too!

    I think this parenting book is my favorite of all the parenting books I've read. I just read it again (for about the 5th time since Marissa was born) this month. It is chock full of very good reminders for me. I have used the story of "Cheeky" the monkey so many times for family home evenings and primary lessons. Even this Monday, all 3 of my kids were enraptured as I told that story again and we reviewed our family laws. :) As with all parenting books - I take and use what I like and what works - and leave the rest sitting unused in the book. ;) But truly - this book has SO much great advice.

    I just have to say that Linda and Richard are my heros and I am trying to be like them. I borrowed and read this book but now realize that I may just have to buy it since it will have to be a resource for me over the years as I try to implement the things that are taught. I liked the examples and methods of teaching. I teach my preschoolers all the things in this book with Joy School (, but it gave me ideas for when my kids are 5+ years old which is what I was looking for since my kids are headed in that direction soon. I was surprised by all of the ways of being responsible that they touched on.

    In all fairness, I did not finish this book. So maybe there is more in it than I am seeing. But I really have a hard time with book that focus more on the doing, than the becoming. Doing is fine and beneficial, but I need it to be balanced with a lot more philosophical why, so that my inner man is changed, resulting in my actions changing. I have yet to feel that with any of the Eyre books. And yet so many people just love these authors! I suppose we are all made differently. And maybe one day I will get some enlightenment about why people like these authors. :)

    I went to church with the Eyre family years ago. They are great people. I really enjoyed most of the content of this book, and it is a well-spring of ideas. Not all of the ideas are universal, but I've highlighted some really good ones for me. I think it would have made more sense to structure this book more as a lesson manual. It would be easier to read as that is how the writing is presented. If someone is looking for a smooth and logical flow of thoughts that tie together, they will be frustrated with the "jumping around" approach that this book seems to take.

    Found this in a stack of books that my mom loaned me a few years back. I think some of this is parenting instinct, because my husband and I had already implemented several of the methods mentioned in the book with our own kids--5 and 3 right now. It's good to have those examples to reinforce our decisions and to get further insight from parents who have already "been through it".

    this book wasn't that easy to read, which is why i've been reading forever. it's organized into 12 or so chapters on different types of resposibility, which was nice, but the chapters themselves were all over the place and gave too many examples of things you could maybe implement in your own family. i didn't get much from it at all.

    Some good principles here -- but I personally find the Eyre's too be kind of over the top in their parenting tips. Still worth a read to see what things appeal to you as a parent and then take those things away with you. There are many different ways to be a good parent and teach your children responsibility.

    "A Guide for Latter-Day Saint Parents." I'm just starting to implement these teaching methods in my own home. The first book "Teaching Children Joy" by the same authors should be read first, which I did, but I don't own a copy so I'm not listing it here.

    Despite being dated, I liked the book and a lot of the information in it. There are some good ideas, but implementing them seemed like a lot of work to add to our day to day life. The ideas and specific focus made me think and hopefully will help me teach my children better.

    This book gave me the framework we have adopted in our family for many years now regarding chores & kid finances. She and her husband are such conscientious parents, I have been inspired through all of their books.

    So I didn't actually finish this book. Not because of the content, my life just got too hectic before I had to return it. I'd like to purchase it and follow her outline better. I like the ideas, it just takes more time to implement them than I had at the time.

    Although she has good ideas on how to teach children responsibility, I was a bit disappointed because a lot of her ideas I had already read in her other book, so a lot of it was repeat stuff. I'm sure there was newer stuff in later sections but I didn't have time to finish it.

    So after renewing it five time at the library I realize I just wasn't in the mood to pick it up and read it much for responsible kids huh? I have to check it out again when I have some time.

    It has been teaching me a great way to communicate with my children and give them good things to do at home to help me and make them responsible.It certainly doesn't have all the answers, but who does? (when it comes to parenting)

    This is a parenting book, set up to help the reader organize and teach one topic (work, obedience, service, etc.)per month in a Family Home Evening setting. I'm going to start in January and actually try to implement some of the Eyre's awesome ideas.

    The authors had some very helpful ideas, yet some were quite extreme.
