Dr. Saul deeply cares for all children. His advocacy on their behalf has led him to write this book for parents. We all need constant reminders about the optimal nurturing of children, and this book provides a multi-dimensional approach to parenting that is refreshingly new.
Since 1999, I have been writing a series of articles for the Index-Journal in Greenwood, South Carolina. These articles (over 165) have addressed timely issues of local and national concern. I organized these articles under five categories or what I call the Five Steps to Community Improvement. These five steps constitute a paradigm that considers all of the systems that have to work together in order to bring about positive changes in our families and in our communities. Upon the urging of colleagues, friends, and readers, I have decided to revise and compile these articles into a single volume that focuses on how we can foster good citizenship (in the broadest sense of that term).
