Dr. Lane S. Anderson, President
Real World Consulting
What a fine collection of useful advice, demonstrative of a definite understanding of what it takes to raise good, decent children. This book needs to be handed out at all hospitals wherever children are born with the Surgeon General’s warning: Do Not Attempt to Raise This Child Without Reading This Book.
Michael Jones, Real Estate Developer
Panama City, Florida
Care Enough to Discipline is not just about children. It is also about those who are role models for children . . . Dr. A. encourages parents and teachers to be consistent and fair with children in teaching them responsibility. Care enough to discipline, care enough to impart values, care enough to make them think outside of themselves and consider others.
Lisa Parrott, Editor
Alamance Magazine & Alamance Woman Magazine
The greatest responsibility we, as parents, have is to raise our children in a manner that develops them into successful adults. Dr. Lane Anderson provides an extraordinarily helpful guide toward helping us achieve that goal! Should be required reading for all who desire to excel in parenting!

Congratulations! Thank you for sending me a copy of your new book, Care Enough to Discipline. I like it. It is succinct, easy-to-read, and strong in both content and presentation. Your extensive reference list gives the book a scholarly feel. The price of $14.95 is a steal. Most books like yours are in the $20 range.

I thoroughly loved the book. This should be a handbook for all Christian educators. That is why I loaned the book to my daughter-in-law, Julie. She is now assistant principal at Smith Elementary.
United Methodist Church
It is often said that “children do not come with instructions”. Dr. A’s Care Enough to Discipline should be the pre-primer for all parents and educators – a constant reminder that our children need us to be loving and involved – at all stages of their development. Thank you, Dr. Anderson for providing this wonderful, resourceful reminder.
Black Child Development Institute of Greensboro, NC
Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful book with us. I sat down immediately and began to read, and after I started, I had to finish it. I highlighted key points of the text for future reference. It was refreshing to see REAL ideals and comments instead of a rosy picture of what SOUNDS good or what people WANT to hear. I shared some of the ideas and information with several of my friends and co-workers, and they plan to order copies of the book.
The Phil & Karen Poe Family
This book has stimulated conversations as well as a healthy exchange of ideas, and fears, that all parents face. They want to do the ‘right thing,’ yet don’t know what that looks like until they pick up a book like yours; a book that resonates with their own morals and values. I believe people will use judgment in raising their child if they are able to understand the underlying rationale of discipline and the fundamental needs of those angels we bring into the world.
Tim Clifford, Retired Principal & Co-Director of Horsepower,
a therapeutic learning center for special needs children
Immediately after reading this hands-on crash course of how to raise today’s children, I sent copies of Dr. Anderson’s book to my two children in New York City for mandatory reading so my three new grandchildren can be all they can be, to paraphrase our military.
J. Philips L. Johnston, JD, Chairman & CEO
The Center for Board Excellence
A practical, usable, and inspiring guide to helping children (and adults) fulfill their lives at home and in school and society. I’m glad you are able to share so much of your hard-gained wisdom with others through this medium. It’s another selfless service.
Philip Anderson, President
Sustainable Living Design
Brief opinion—FANTASTIC. It is easy to read, simple to understand, and refreshing.
Stewart Dunaway, Retired Division Head
When I finished reading. I felt so calm! It was a good feeling . . . Wouldn’t it be great for parents to read a chapter together then discuss their feelings about it? Or, teachers at a meeting?
Dr. Bernadette Scott, Retired Principal
'Dr. A.’s’ book is an important read for any person in a caring relationship. His advice is real and down to earth. His straightforward approach to life’s issues, as they relate to family, is simple and easy to understand. Dr. A. has given good advice to us here at Alamance Magazine and I can honestly say he has been a benefit to our entire staff. His patient understanding is the underpinning of his book and is meaningful and enlightening. I bought his book for friends and family and found it to be a gift worth giving.
Paul C. Rovegno, Publisher/Owner
Our school district purchased Care Enough To Discipline, Raising Children for the 21st Century to provide leadership ideas for our mentors as part of the Merit Academy Program. Our Merit Academy mentors learned a great deal from this book in assisting them with their students in dealing with dropout prevention, self-esteem, behavioral issues and academic achievement.
