Raising Kids Who Can, by Betty Lou Bettner, Ph.D., and Amy Lew, Ph.D.
This little diamond in the rough reveals the nuts and bolts of Family Meetings in under two hundred pages! I have to be honest – this is one of my favorite books and my copy will attest to that. Talk about a Roadmap to follow, this book will come in handy whether you are just starting your Family Meetings or you are already a pro. As if that weren’t enough, if you are one of the many parents still confused about HOW to incorporate the Crucial C’s (Connect, Capable, Count and Courage) into your life, you won’t be after this read.

Betty Lou and Amy do an amazing job weaving the Crucial C’s into daily life and family meetings through examples and stories. This book is easy to follow, fun to read, makes sense and will continue to be a resource for years to come.
