“John’s writings are characterized by both practicality and compassion, and he has had a decidedly positive influence on families for several decades now.”
~ Dr. James Dobson
"Back in the late 80's you spoke in Boone, Iowa, on parenting. My wife and I read your newspaper articles, where advice was given on raising children. We were both educators, and retired in 2012, although we continue to substitute teach on occasion, loving young people. On this Mother's Day we were reflecting upon the impact you had as we successfully raised three children, who are as of today 31, 29, and 27. We give you a great deal of credit for providing a common sense approach, with Christian values, of how to raise our precious gifts from God, our three children. We just wanted you to know the positive effect your words provided. Thank you for helping us navigate the most important role in life we had/have. May your words continue to guide others as you did for us."

"When my son was three/four he was extremely active. He had difficulty listening and staying still in school. I could have gone the traditional routes of medicine and therapy. However, I have been in the mental health field and realize the ineffectiveness of these approaches. I started following John Rosemond and came up with a game plan. If my son had a "bad" day at school he went right to bed. He could read, color, play whatever, but he had to stay in bed. Dinner was water and PB&J - as much as he wanted. I realize some parents would think this was cruel, but I stuck with it. You know what? It worked! Over the next few weeks his behavoir at school improved. My son is now 12 and on the high honor roll. He is involved with sports, band, and student council. I have been told numerous times by adults what a nice child he is-all this with no therapy or medication. It has not been a perfect journey, but his dad and I have stuck with our principles. I believe that the consistent discipline is the only way my son is now becoming this respectable young man. Thank you John so much for your continued leadership in parenting."
