Prime Family Alert!

Welcome to Prime Family Alert!  This quarterly e-newsletter has two goals. First, to increase awareness and understanding of the essential issues that impact children in today’s complex world. Second, to provide parents with deep insights, useful information, and practical tools to help their children develop into value-driven, successful, and happy children.

Prime Family Alert! is adopted from Dr. Taylor’s books, Positive Pushing: How to Raise a Successful and Happy Child, Your Children are Under Attack: How Popular Culture is Destroying Your Kids’ Values, and How You Can Protect Them, Your Children are Listening: Nine Messages They Need to Hear From You, and Raising Generation Tech: Preparing Your Children for a Media-fueled World.
