Dr. Jim Burns about "CANDID CONFESSIONS…""
"Candid Confessions of an Imperfect Parent" takes a fresh and authentic
approach to parenting. I loved Jonathan's transparency. He
motivated me to be a better parent—and I feel better knowing there
are other imperfect parents like me.
- Jim Burns, president, HomeWord; author of Confident Parenting and Faith Conversations for Families
"Jonathan McKee's parenting tips are powerful, thought-provoking, effective, and
convicting—yet spiked with such humor and self- effacing sketches that his truths
don't shame us for our
ineffective parenting. They just make us want to
do better. "
-Rick Bundschuh, parent,pastor,author of Deep Like Me
"Jonathan is refreshingly transparent about his own lack of parenting skills. He
weaves together his personal stories and those of many others into a tapestry that
gives us a clear view of our messed-up world. But he doesn't leave us there. He
offers hope, practical help, and encouragement. The good news for any parent is
it is never too late to begin a solid relationship with your sons and daughters.
-Les Christie, author; chairman, Youth Ministry Department, William Jessup University
"Candid Confessions of an Imperfect Parent
is one of the most practical,
most transparent, and most helpful parenting books I've ever read. As the parent
of two teenagers myself, I feel better equipped after reading this book, and I think
you will too. Buy a copy for yourself, and a few to give away, because you won't
want to loan yours out! "
-Kurt Johnston, pastor to students, Saddleback Church
"Jonathan—imperfect parent that he is—shows you how to truly connect with your kid.
He brings research and experience and delivers with amazing storytelling and humor.
-Dr. Kevin Leman, author of Have a New Kid by Friday
"There is so much guilt that accompanies parenting, particularly if you are a Christian.
Jonathan McKee takes the pressure off the pursuit of perfection and leads us to
practical insight and hope for building into our kids the best we have to offer.
You'll be a better parent after reading this book. I highly recommended it. "
-Mark Matlock, vice president, Youth Specialties; author of Real World Parents
and Raising Wise Children
"Every parent should read Candid Confessions of an Imperfect Parent
bridge the communication gap between parents and youth today. Jonathan's practical
and easy-to- implement ideas are peppered with humor and common sense, which makes
for an enjoyable and quick read. I recommend this book to all parents who would
like to build relationships, or improve their relationships, with their teenagers.
-Al Menconi, author, But It Doesn't Affect Me
"Jonathan McKee is insightful, witty, authentic, and honest. This is a practical
and lighthearted book that will help all parents value what's really important in
life—a deepening relationship with our kids. I highly recommend this book. "
-Dr. David Olshine, director of Youth Ministry, Family, and Culture, Columbia International
"The cat's out of the bag: people who write parenting books aren't necessarily the
perfect parents they let on to be! Not too many of us are willing to admit that,
but Jonathan McKee transparently owns up to his own imperfections and suggests that
imperfect parents are actually in the perfect
position to become great
parents. Jonathan makes his points quickly and illustrates them well with precision
and good humor. I will recommend this book—especially to parents who don't like
to read parenting books! "
