Roles. They define our rights, obligations, responsibilities, beliefs, and even who we are. How well do we each understand our respective roles? How do we teach our children about proper roles? How would the problems children and parents face change if they better understood roles? Aren’t parents whether aggressive, passive or assertive always defining roles anyway? How do roles effect business relationships? Why do we see the roles in today’s world wrapped around so much confusion and debate when it’s impossible to escape roles? This book (published in 2016) makes roles easier to understand, and it shows how to strengthen roles and empower ourselves and those we live and work with to reach our full potentials.
When it comes to relationships, Nicholeen Peck is a worldwide phenomenon and leader and for good reason! Her proven system based on Four Simple Skills transforms even the most out-of-control teenagers and homes from chaos to calm within days. And her deliberate relationship improvement methods and skills have saved organizations and businesses around the world. Though she’s an international speaker, author, mentor, former foster parent of many difficult and troubled teens, CEO, and even President of the Worldwide Organization for Women (an approved consultant for the United Nations), Nicholeen spends most of her time at home with her husband and four children, which she knows will be her greatest impact and legacy. The fact that she has such an international influence while still being a stay-at-home mom is evidence of the effectiveness of her teachings.
When I saw the title of this book, I was shocked and intrigued. Who would be brave enough to talk about the importance of roles in a society that thinks they are old fashioned and wrong? Nicholeen Peck has done just that. She has made roles important again. This book isn’t about stereotypical task lists. It’s about a new understanding of respect and working together in the most productive way possible.
We are living in an era which teaches that the blurring and erasing of roles is necessary for equality, but Nicholeen’s timely book removes this fiction and makes clear the importance of roles in our families and society.

This book is a breath of fresh air! I will never see myself or my relationships the same again. Without an understanding of roles, relationships will just keep getting destroyed.
