We literally set our children up for failure when we don’t explain starts out with a chapter titled “The Right Person Myth” that takes on the Hollywood belief that when we find the right person, we will finally be OK. You need to be the kind of person that the kind of person you want will actually want.
Andy Stanley managed to put into black and white what parents have been struggling to say for decades, and he does it with such a great sense of humor.
He comes up with a brilliant line that I am going to use on my girls: “Are you the person the person you’re looking for is looking for? It would change lives if we managed to get our children to understand this concept before they left the house so that they could apply it to all aspects of their lives. Stanley really gets into the good stuff starting with Chapter 6 “The Gentleman’s Club” where he talks about how to treat a woman.
