How to Raise Respectful Children will help you learn the tools necessary to help you encourage your child to become a person who not only gives others respect, but is in turn a respected person.
About the Expert
Jane Rodda holds a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Psychology from Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, California. She currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee, but has previously lived and worked in several places in the United States.
Jane has over twenty years experience working in Christian Day Camps. Her first job was as an assistant craft counselor, and through the years she worked her way up to eventually directing the camps, and then eventually pioneering a brand new day camp program which served a community desperately in need of programs for children.
She wrote How To Start a Christian Day Camp because she passionately believes that Day Camps provide an excellent opportunity for churches to be able to reach several members of the community. Jane has seen camps meet the needs of parents, by providing something for their children; kids, by providing fun and exciting programs, and youth, by providing an opportunity to serve.
Jane has learned a lot through all of her experiences, and she seeks to help others learn as well. Her hope is that churches or individuals will be encouraged and inspired to start Christian Day Camps and see the fun and exciting changes they can bring to a community.
