“Betty Lou Bettner and Amy Lew have created a fresh, insightful synthesis of strategies for becoming a more functional, responsible, and capable family. This is a book about family meetings, but it is also a book about the bigger picture that makes family meetings (and families) work. The book has a practical approach with a clear writing style.” — Don Dinkmeyer, Jr., Ph.D., co-author of The New STEP

"Easy-to-read, logically presented, and filled with many helpful examples. Raising Kids Who Can will not only lead to better family meetings, but to better families." -- Michael H. Popkin, author of Active Parenting

"This book is a little gem that succeeds in a big way. Raising Kids Who Can lays out a readable, doable map for families (and teachers) seeking to develop structure and cooperation in a friendly atmosphere." -- The Family Psychologist, American Psychological Association.
