"When I had my first child, I jokingly told my mother he didn't come with a users manual. Yes, there are all kinds of how-to raise your child books out there, but this book goes beyond the physical well being of a child. This book touches the core ... the heartfelt relationship all parents wish to have with their children.
As a mother of fie children I found this book aluable and quickly started implementing some of the gems found in this book as I was editing the draft ersion. (To see if it really worked!). And you know what? It worked! My youngest three were delighted that I was really listening to them when they spoke (yes, I listened but with one simple but powerful hint that Paula shares in this book!). What a difference this made in my life, and I am sure it will make in your life. "

- Stee Arterburn, Founder and Chairman of New Life Ministries and Founder of the Women of Faith® Conferences"Communication –so necessary for husbands and wies, but also extremely important for parents and children. Secret Code Time 305 is the rieting account of the personal journey of one family that discoered the secret of communicating deeply, significantly, and honestly, without judgment or recrimination. But it is more than just a personal story; it also about applying biblical truths so foundational to healthy communication and stable family life.
The Secret Code is about children unashamedly confiding in their parents with the assurance that they will be affirmed and loved. Instead of fearing rejection, disappointing their parents, and facing hurtful consequences, children will find a safe place and way to share their deepest needs. It all comes from parents learning how to build a strong relationship with their children. The principled process in the Secret Code will help parents to listen and respond from the heart and build hope and confidence in their children. For the health and stability of your family, especially your children, read this book."
