For over 50 years Molly Koch has been advocating that mothers and fathers reconnect with their intuition and learn to trust their judgment. She encourages parents to learn about the stages of child development, but also to

• Get to know their children, accepting and respecting them as they are,
• Pay attention and listen with patience and compassion
• Recognize actions that can be mistakes

The ideas presented here will help lead to relationships with children that are close and honest, enjoyable and satisfying, rewarding, and, above all, lasting. Using the “secrets” in this book, parents will not just raise their children, they will uplift them and, in the process, be themselves uplifted.

“Molly Koch is wonderful! Using her warmth and wisdom she conveys practical ideas for raising amazing kids. She nailed it—moms and dads have to get back to that glorious thing called instinct. Parents who temper their gut feelings with careful listening and respect will be amazed with the results—and children will be the real winners.”
—Michele Borba, Ed.D., author of 12 Simple Secrets Real Moms Know and Parents Do Make a Difference

“Molly Koch has affirmed and challenged parents honestly, firmly, and with great love. Rather than preaching parenting ‘skills’ she talks about ways of being and attitudes of the heart and draws on her own experience and that of others for practical, real-life examples. She enables parents to realize and value the potential they have within them—for parenting and for life.”
—Sr. Margi Savage, SSJ, Coordinator, Marian House III

“Whether you are the parent of 2-year-old or a 52-year-old, whether you have children or don’t, 27 Secrets to Raising Amazing Children is one of those rare books you will want to read time and again. Less a parenting book and more of a relationship book, it is filled with the wisdom of parents and the voice of one who has spent literally a lifetime listening to them and living the secrets she’s learned along with them.”
—Baltimore’s Child Magazine
