Each practical chapter spells out ‘What you could do’ and ‘What you could say’—not to win a war, but to win a relation¬ship of respect.

Karol Ladd, Founder, Positive Life Principles; author, The Power of a Positive Mom

Les and Leslie Parrott, Founders, Center for Relationship Development, #1 NYT Authors, The Parent You Want to Be

“From back talk and bullying . . . to temper tantrums and bedtime battles, June presents parent-tested ideas that really work for real challenges as verified by coauthor and mother of seven, PeggySue Wells. If you have children in your life, you will be grateful for this valuable parenting guide.”
Catherine Hart Weber, Director, Flourish in Life and Relationships Center for Wellbeing; author, Flourish: Discover Vibrant Living

“Once again, June has captured the attention and the hearts of parents! What parent hasn’t cried out, at least internally, for help to rein in their children? What parent hasn’t prayed for help to lovingly guide sons and daughters in the way of the Lord? Well-respected and loved for her Biblical Counseling Keys for life’s issues, June provides the guidance parents are seeking to set healthy boundaries while bonding with their most precious gifts from God.”
Carmen Pate, Principal, Communications, Alliance Ministries and The 210 Project

“Parents today face an increasingly complex task in raising children in a fast-paced world full of digital distractions while immersed in a counter-Christian culture. This book will serve as a wonderful resource for parents to strengthen their bond with their child through boundaries.”
Dan Egeler, President, Association of Christian Schools International

“As a guidance counselor in a Christian school, I’ll refer to Bonding with Your Child through Boundaries constantly in my work with students, parents, and teachers—just as I’ve done for years with June’s companion book for teens. June’s biblical, practical approach is evident on every page. It’s an indispensable resource for every Christian school administrator, counselor, and teacher.”
Angela Paxton, Guidance Counselor, Legacy Christian Academy, Frisco, Texas

“Never has this book been more needed than now and no one is more perfect for handling the responsibility than June Hunt. June's ministry provides a back¬ground for understanding why children need boundaries to grow into healthy, productive adults. This resource is refreshing and full of helpful insights.”
Janice Shaw Crouse, Management Committee, World Congress of Families; author, Children at Risk and Marriage Matters

“Just as football—or any other sport—needs boundaries and rules to make it fun and interesting, children need boundaries to feel secure and confident. June’s book makes this plain in a powerful way, with lots of great action points to help you put boundaries into practice with your kids. These insights are important—not only for us, but for our entire culture, and the next generation of parents and children.”
