About the Book
"The Truth about Parenting: A Universal Manual for Parenting" is a parenting manual for present and future parents. Learning how to be a parent and about the importance of being a parent before we become one makes us less anxious and more enthusiastic about the most important job we will ever have. People often want to be good parents, but they are not sure of just how to achieve that. Most of us are unaware of the principles of life and parenting provided in the book of Proverbs. 

This well-written manual is a tool to serve as a step-by-step guide for learning how to practice effective parenting skills. Learning the truth about parenting is necessary. This manual addresses solutions to most of our present parenting dilemmas. In addition, this manual makes us realize the problem and speaks to proven solutions. Consequently, this truth is long awaited.

Just 3 days left to make a gift and get a cape #CapeDayATL

For 100 years, our superheroes at Children's have fought villains that most of us could never imagine. One superhero patient in particular faced her scary villain, cancer, with amazing strength and courage.Hudson Lillystone was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) when she was just 4 years old.
When she put on the blue cape that a family friend made for her during her inpatient stay at the Aflac Cancer Center, "Super Hudson" channeled the power and inspiration of her favorite superheroes.
As our community readies for Cape Day Part Two: 100 Years Strong, we invite you to be a sidekick for patients like Hudson by donning your own cape on Tuesday, Sept. 15, and posting photos on social media using #CapeDayATL.
A limited number of anniversary capes are available for order online until this Friday, so act now to have yours for the big day.Proceeds from the capes sales benefit our not-for-profit hospital.
Together, we will rally together for our tiniest superheroes who face seemingly insurmountable odds battling illnesses and injuries.
With a cape, anything is possible.
