thought and a few laughs along the way."

"Larry challenges us as parents to complete the job and embrace the journey of responsible parenting. This book is a great reminder and road map, full of good tough love for parents!"
"In the Hispanic/Latino family there is always a lot of love and appreciation however, not a lot of training or education especially about money. I have been a radio and television host for 23 years and did not know how to manage my finances in until I was 30. I wish I knew in my teen years what Larry's book teaches. The topics Larry covers you will never learn in school. Quite frankly, its not their responsibility. It is yours as a parent. In Larry's typical "off the hook" style and humorous forthright approach he provides the tools and tips for every parent to train up a successful generation of great and productive citizens. I recommend this book wholeheartedly."
-Marco Antonio Regil, International TV Host/ Family Feud, Price Is Right and Smarter Than A Fifth Grader
"If the kids and youth of this nation are our future leaders, we are all in trouble. Have you asked yourself lately where our country will be in ten or twenty years? If you want a better world, it starts with your kids - but your kids start with your parenting! Larry is no stranger to confrontation, and in his book, Your Kids Are Your Own Fault, he sets the stage for your success as a parent, and your child's success as a productive member of our society - that is if you are ready for the cold, hard facts. His in-your-face approach is fresh and relevant to raising a generation of youth who will make us all proud to call them our own. A coach has a playbook, and as a Pastor I use my Bible for daily instruction. Your Kids Are Your Own Fault is a playbook for parenting for generations to come."
-Dick Bernal, Pastor and Founder, Jubilee Christian Center, San Jose, California
"Larry Winget's book on taking responsibility for what kind of adults your kids become is outstanding. I have 7 children, and laying the foundation for the next generation and what kind of adults they become starts from day one. My oldest son Romeo attending USC is no accident. Read this book. No more excuses."
-Percy "Master P" Miller, CEO BBTV/ Recording Artist
"First this book scared the hell out of me. Then it gave me hope. It scared me because Larry is brutally honest about the challenges and dangers facing kids today. The hope came from Larry's message that our kids will probably be just fine if we take full responsibility as parents. Nobody ever accused Larry of being subtle, and from the realities of sex to learning about integrity by eating dog biscuits, Larry doesn't pull any punches. This book will make you squirm, make you mad, sometimes make you laugh out loud and mostly make you think very carefully about how you're raising your kids. This book is a gift to my daughters because it has helped me be a better Dad."
-Joe Calloway, Cate and Jessica's dad, author of Becoming A Category of One
"One of the lessons it's important to teach kids is not so much about how much money you have but how you use the money you have. Sadly, that lesson is rarely taught. Brilliant, Bold and True!...Larry says it all in these few words. Thank you Larry !"
