    Even on your worst day, you may become someone else's best hope. When Pastor Craig and Samantha Johnson moved to Houston to take a position at Lakewood Church, they thought they had it made. Two kids, a great job, a beautiful home, and a solid plan for the future. Their dream, however, was interrupted by the unplanned arrival of a third child, Connor. Connor grew to become a normal, healthy toddler. When he turned two, however, something changed. He stopped talking, displayed behavioral problems, and was no longer the cheerful, engaged little boy they had known. No one seemed to have answers until the official diagnosis was handed down - autism. Faced with seemingly insurmountable odds - a child who could not speak or respond with emotion - the Johnsons were filled with unanswered questions and deep sorrow. God quietly spoke to Craig's heart, telling him Connor's story would one day touch the lives of thousands of people around the globe. Craig and Samantha held that unlikely promise in their hearts during the years ahead. They accepted the diagnosis, but refused to believe their story was over. God was not finished with the Johnson family. The Johnsons resolved to love their son with everything they had, no matter what. While Samantha watched over Connor's daily needs, Craig began to search the Scriptures for promises from God, Bible verses they could all cling to. They made sure Connor did not miss Pastor Joel Osteen's Sunday morning services and, over time, Craig and Samantha developed a long list of positive verses designed to instill a daily dose of faith, hope, and love into their family. Then, one day, a miracle occurred. Connor spoke. Instantly flooded with a variety of emotions, the Johnsons rejoiced. Their boy could talk. And not only talk but perform a perfect recitation of Pastor Joel Osteen's opening affirmation: "This is my Bible, I am what it says I am...." Today Connor is a vibrant young man, and his family's faith-filled response to his diagnosis has launched a worldwide wave of support and attention for special needs children of all stripes. Connor's life has truly touched the world. Written with transparency and humor, Champion will inspire those in the middle of an unexpected trial to rise up and become someone's champion.

    Perfection is the enemy of parenting. Jim Daly sees and hears from mothers and fathers trying hard to pursue perfection. They listen to the best experts and read all the right books. When someone gives them a "World's Best Mom" or "Number One Dad" coffee mug, they want it to be true. And they want their children to pursue perfection, too. It's admirable for parents to be the very best moms and dads they can be for their children. But sometimes in so doing, they leave grace behind - both for themselves and for their children. Jim believes that our quest for perfection, a quest that he believes is particularly strong among Christians, runs counter to God's own boundless gift of grace. We can become Pharisaical parents, quoting endless rules and holding everyone to impossible standards. But God doesn't want us, and our kids don't need us, to be perfect. As parents we're called to simply do our best. And when we fail - which we will - we're called to try again tomorrow. Though he's the president of Focus on the Family, Jim does not promise that his book will be a catalyst for a perfect family. But it can help point the way toward a good family - one that feels safe and warm, one filled with love and laughter. This book will encourage mothers and fathers to embrace the messiness of parenthood and show grace to their own less-than-ideal children. Jim, through his own experiences, expertise, and array of stories, will lead both moms and dads to a better understanding of what being a good family is all about.

    Los principios de Conoce a tu bebé se compartieron por primera vez en 1984. Sarah fue la primera niña criada con estos principios; Kenny fue el primer niño. Ambos prosperaron con la leche materna y una rutina básica, y ambos durmieron toda la noche desde las siete semanas. Fue así de fácil. Conoce a tu bebé ha sido traducido a 16 idiomas y es utilizado por más de 6 millones de padres en todo el mundo. Al igual que con las ediciones anteriores, esta actualización no proporciona a los padres una lista de lo que se debe y no se debe hacer. Desearíamos que la crianza fuera fácil. Más bien, nuestro objetivo es ayudar a preparar las mentes para la increíble tarea de criar a un niño. Creemos que la preparación de la mente es mucho más importante que la preparación de la guardería. Ambos pueden ser muy divertidos. A tu bebé no le importará si su cabeza descansa sobre sábanas de diseño o al lado de los personajes de Disney, ni su éxito está vinculado a su guardarropa o accesorios de dormitorio, sino a las creencias y convicciones que eventualmente darán forma a su experiencia de crianza. Es nuestra opinión que los logros de un crecimiento saludable, bebés contentos, buenas siestas y momentos de vigilia juguetones, así como el regalo del sueño nocturno, son demasiado valiosos para dejarlos al azar. Deben estar dirigidos y administrados por los padres. Estas son conclusiones alcanzables, porque los bebés nacen con la capacidad de lograr estos resultados y, lo que es igualmente importante, la necesidad de lograrlos. Nuestro objetivo es demostrar cómo se hace esto, pero solo después de explicar por qué debería hacerse. Nos damos cuenta de que hay una serie de teorías de crianza que se comercializan hoy, la mayoría de las cuales vienen envueltas en regalos con promesas poco realistas y cargas innecesarias. A la luz de las muchas opciones, ¿cómo pueden los nuevos padres saber qué enfoque es el mejor para su familia? Dado que cada filosofía de la crianza de los hijos tiene un resultado correspondiente único a esa filosofía, alentamos a los nuevos y futuros padres a considerar, evaluar y decidir qué enfoque es mejor para su familia. Esto se puede lograr observando los resultados finales. Pasa tiempo con familiares y amigos que sigan el estilo de cuidado infantil de la Paternidad apegada. Los principios contenidos en estas páginas pueden ayudar a los padres a desarrollar estrategias viables que satisfagan las necesidades de sus bebés y del resto de la familia. ¡Han funcionado para millones de padres, y cuando se aplican fielmente pueden funcionar maravillosamente para ti! Sin embargo, siempre debes consultar a tu pediatra o médico de familia cuando surjan preguntas sobre la salud y el bienestar de tu bebé. ¡Disfruta el viaje de la paternidad!
