Do you often hear complaints like these?
 
“Why don’t my kids do what I say?”
“Who made the mess in here?”
“When will my teen make better choices?”.
 
Inspired by the same concepts that made John Miller's signature work, QBQ: The Question Behind the Question, an international bestseller over the last decade, Raising Accountable Kids offers the tool called the QBQ or The Question Behind the Question that will help every parent look behind questions such as “Why won’t my kids listen?” or “When will they do what I ask?” to find better ones—QBQs—like “What can I do differently?” or “How can I improve as a parent?” This simple yet challenging concept turns the focus – and responsibility – back to parents and to what they can do to make a difference.
 
With thoughtful commentary, observation, and advice, illustrated with engaging and memorable anecdotes that are the hallmarks of John Miller’s previous books, Raising Accountable Kids provides all moms and dads with the means and inspiration to be more effective parents – as well as teach their children how to practice their own brand of personal accountability – to create a happy, healthy family for a lifetime.
