    Hi Fastlane Parents,

    Reading books on parenting can have an enormous positive impact on the affect you have on raising your children - my favorite book is How to be a great dad by Keith Zafren. What is your favorite book on parenting?

    A big part of what constitutes a "good" parenting advice will depend on your worldview.

    If you have a Christian worldview (or at least you're open-minded enough to examine new information, no matter the source), a great parenting book would be King Me: What Every Son Wants and Needs from His Father.

    The author (Steve Farrar ) uses kings of the Old Testament as character studies to examine the critical role a father plays in preparing his son to become a godly man, concluding that what separated the "good kings" from the "bad kings" in the Old Testament was a father who made time commitments to mentor his son.

    I think that's true irrespective of your worldview. And despite the "son" bias, I see no reason why making time commitments to mentor your daughter wouldn't be as helpful.

    Also, as my little boy (who will be 4 in December) grows up, I see him trying to ape me in everything I do. As a result, I've come to appreciate that the biggest parenting advice is for parents to live an exemplary life for their kids to follow. And a critical piece of that puzzle is how the parents treat and relate to each other!
