What life lessons did your parents and grandparents teach you that have served you well? If your parents are like mine, they repeated certain lectures often. They also took time for discussions around the dinner table. Are you doing that in your family? The two-day free offer below may be just what you need to get started.

I recently published a Kindle eBook — Favorite Family Lectures: Secrets of Life Every Teen Wants to Know! One reader called it a “Parent/Teen Survival Guide.” Whatever you call it, Favorite Family Lectures features life lessons that surfaced while surveying teens and parents on the core lessons that are most important to learn on the way to adulthood.

Unfortunately, sometimes the most important things in life are the hardest to talk about. Whether it’s the keys to the car or getting high on life instead of drugs or alcohol, this book helps parents and teens talk to each other about the tough issues that matter most. Anchored in values, chapters explore honesty, faith, patriotism, and how studying and working hard can help secure a future to be proud of.

Robert Tucker, author, speaker, and father, had this observation, “What I realized in reading Favorite Family Lectures is how few conversations as a family we’ve really had about the principles and life lessons that matter most. It’s a fun and insightful read, but I think every parent ought to have this with them on a family vacation. When you have kids captive in the back seat with time to kill, I could see reading one of the lectures and have a great conversation before it really is a lecture you wish you had shared.”

If you have a Kindle reader or the Kindle App on your computer, iPhone. smart phone, or iPad, you can download a free copy Favorite Family Lectures on Tuesday July 31st and Wedesday August 1st. No matter what resource you use, start initiating meaningful parent/teen conversations today. Do your part to develop a new generation of Americans we can be proud of.
