Why Children Matter

by Douglas Wilson

In the Garden of Eden, there was only one “No.” Everything else was “Yes.”

In this short book on childrearing, Douglas Wilson points out that we have a Father who delights in us and makes it easy for us to love and obey him. If that is the kind of Father we have, shouldn’t we earthly parents do the same? Wilson explains how parents should not just try to get their kids to obey a set of rules or to make their house so fun that following the rules is always easy. Instead, he calls for parents to instill in their kids a love for God and His standards that will serve them well all their days.

This book also features an appendix in which Doug and his wife Nancy answer various parents’ questions about various applications of the principles discussed in this book.

Diary of a Soccer Dad: Focusing on Life Lessons in Youth Sports

by Kent Malmros

Youth sports has become an enormous business, unquestionably. In the last two decades, seasonal sports have become a thing of the past. It’s possible for children to play soccer, baseball, basketball, lacrosse and pretty much any other sport twelve months a year, without a break. All with mounting costs and diminishing free time.

Diary of a Soccer Dad gives parents a framework to help their children focus on learning life’s key lessons through participation in youth athletics. At a time when many stop playing sports, forever, by the age of thirteen, these lessons ensure that every minute is worthwhile. Regardless of how long a child plays, focusing on sports as a way to improve other aspects of life will make it more worthwhile.

By detailing his personal experiences, and connecting them to others he’s observed on and off the field, Kent Malmros explores and outlines a new way for everyone to approach participation in youth sports and beyond. His daughter’s participation in soccer helped Kent rediscover some of the key lessons life has to offer. As he considered what those lessons were, Kent realized he could make them the focus of his daughter’s youth sports experience. That’s what this book is about.

Kent Malmros is the loving dad of two active daughters. He has translated years of soccer and dance dad experiences into his first book. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, he currently lives in New Hope, Pennsylvania with his wife Cindy, and their amazing girls, Kendall and Hayden.
