The Nine Lessons Book Giveaway...

August Witte is firmly against having children. But after seven years of marriage, his wife is delighted when she realizes she is unexpectedly pregnant. August is terrified, recognizing he never learned the first thing about being a good parent from his father London. A widower since August was a toddler, London has always valued the game of golf--a sport August has never had any talent for--more than his son.
In spite of how he hates the game, when August confronts his father, he finds himself agreeing to meet each month of the pregnancy for a round of golf. In exchange, London will give him the only thing that could make August agree to pick up a club again--memories of his mother, which he has written on golf scorecards since the day he met her. But August quickly realizes that his father's motive is not to teach him about golf, but to teach him about life--and he may discover that the old man just might know something about it worth sharing.

I believe though that you do NOT have to have good parents to be Good parents yourself! I think your children can teach you how to be Wonderful parents!!! I love learning as I go along...they bring such a smile to my face!!!

Sounds like an interesting book. Some people, especially men, don't know how to show their emotions or say what they want to directly so I can see how this story could be so true.
