Description
Nearly 15 years ago, Richard Melnick was diagnosed with cancer. His children, two young boys, were only three and five years old and the diagnosis inspired Richard to rethink his approach to parenting. Fueled by a sense of urgency, he introduced Jackson and Josh to ideas typically thought of as adult: introspection, responsibility, acceptance, gratitude. He wanted them to be secure in the world, without panic or existential crisis. Richard has long since recovered his health and enjoying life. In Parents Who Don't Dishes (and other recipes for life) he reflects on his parenting style and who his children have become. He can see they understand these ideas from how they choose to be and what they demonstrate in life. It is just like studying music. Remembering the melody from deep within without needing to recite the notes and chord changes. He also believes that the role of service, willingly and even cheerfully contributing to the family and the household, played an important role in their growth. From an early age, he expected his boys to pitch in around the house and it started with dishes, even when they needed a step stool to reach the sink. In Parents Who Don't Do Dishes Richard shares his approach to parenting. Part memoir, part parenting book, and part cookbook (a family needs good eating before there can be dishes to wash), this entertaining and easy-to-read book is a recipe for living life more fully as much as it offers ideas for parenting. This book will keep readers inspired long after they ve set it down.
