Manassas, VA (PRWEB) July 24, 2009
A new, one-of-a-kind service now gives busy parents the ability to learn the important points from leading parenting books in just a short amount of time.
The new free service launched by FamilyIntel, LLC provides time-crunched parents with a condensed version of a significant parenting, marriage, or family relationship book every week. Each book summary consists of direct excerpts from the book and runs eight-pages in length. FamilyIntel book summaries equip hurried families with quick, intelligent solutions to handle everyday challenges.
"Many parents are looking for answers to raising children and strengthening families in today's society. However, they struggle to find the time to read the very books that can help them. Hectic schedules, long work hours, and children's activities consume their days," FamilyIntel Co-Founder Kim Harris said. "Our solution to the problem is to provide busy families with quick, easy-to-read summaries of books from leading experts and authors. This weekend, on Parents' Day, marks the perfect time to start reading the summaries."
In 1994, Congress adopted a resolution establishing the fourth Sunday of every July as Parents' Day, a day for "recognizing, uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children." This year, National Parents' Day falls on Sunday, July 26.
"Parents with a passion for enhancing their families now can get key strategies in just a few minutes. They can read the summaries while waiting for an appointment, at their computer, or when they're on the train or plane," Greg Harris, Co-Founder of FamilyIntel, said. "Our summaries help all parents--from married couples to single parents, from mothers to fathers, from parents of girls to parents of boys--learn more in less time."
Parents in today's high-tech, fast-paced society face challenges and pressures that are far different from the ones their parents faced. According to a 2007 national survey by the Pew Research Center, the majority of people say parents today have a tougher job than parents 20 years ago. While books are published constantly to give tips on meeting these challenges, families are left with little time to sort through many of these books.
