Years ago I read a book by Anne Ortlund entitled Children Are Wet Cement. Recently, I have talked to several people who are frustrated because they are so busy and their house is a disaster area. The premise of the book was that children, ours and others, are very moldable while they are young. They will easily confo. inistering Designer. They know they need to organize but that takes time that they do not seem . There is nothing wrong with hoping that our friends will have happy times in the new year. We all want to have peace, joy and good times.

Wow! I am so excited to see this book back in print. I read this book 20+ years ago when my kids were young and it provided the best advice I have ever read for what children 3-5 years old need (advice for other age levels is also provided). A few years ago, I ordered used copies of the book to use for a Sunday School class on parenting young children. I have recommended this book to many young parents over the years.

I am a Gifted Coordinator in public schools and see parents wanting to help their children get a head start on school by trying to `teach' their preschool age children academics. However, recent brain research shows it is not knowledge (numbers, letters, etc.) that helps grow the brain - but experiences - that grow dendrites in the brain. Children need to play, explore and be curious about their world. Anne Ortlund does a wonderful job expressing these ideas in the book. Children 3-5 do not need flash cards to make them smart. Rather, as the book suggests, children 3-5 need to feel sand sifting between their fingers, the feel of morning dew between their toes, and other types of experiences!

Children Are Wet Cement
There are very few books that I've read more than once. I've read this book on parenting at least a dozen times in the 22 years I've been raising children and it is helpful, challenging, and insightful each time. I can honestly say this book has made me a better parent.

This is not a book with an extensive outline of techniques to employ. Anne Ortlund has one message she wants to get through to you- what you say to your children and how you say it makes all the difference in the world. If that sounds too simple to you, I will say that it is only "too simple" if you've already done the difficult, soul-searching work of evaluating your attitudes and communication toward your children.

I highly recommend you add this book to your parenting collection.
I read this book 25 years ago and I never forgot it. The ideas stuck with me throughout my child-rearing years. I can't tell you how grateful I am to have read this along with Dare to Discipline by Dr. James Dobson. Both books influenced me tremendously. It is by God's great hand that I have the amazing children that I do and this book is one of the tools He used in their lives and mine.
