PEANUT BUTTER PRINCIPLESIn Peanut Butter Principles: 47 Leadership Lessons Every Parent Should Teach Their Kids, Eric Franklin has assembled a wealth of wisdom he learned from his parents, extended family and other influencers that has stuck with him — like peanut butter sticks to the roof of your mouth! 🙂

Franklin’s simple concepts can prove to have lasting power to develop young leaders, including:

  • “Be thankful you don’t get everything you ask for.”
  • “The difference between a goal and a dream is a deadline.”
  • “Your accomplishments should speak for themselves. Don’t interrupt.”
  • “If you don’t make your own decision, someone else will make it for you.”
  • “Count your blessings, not your problems.”

Let’s read the reviews:

“Peanut Butter Principles” by Eric Franklin is a very insightful and encouraging book. Mr. Franklin touches on some very good points on how to encourage children and others to reach their full potential. As the author points out, our journey to reach our full potential and to make our lives a success is not easy, but with hard work and perseverance it is possible. Mr. Franklin speaks about how to build up the child’s self esteem when helping them. He mentions that they should think for themselves as opposed to giving the child the answers or completing a task for them. Mr. Franklin tells us the importance of persevering in our endeavors and not giving up so easily.”

“Eric Franklin has opened my eyes to the power of leadership lessons. As a father of three and a businessman, it’s hard to find books that apply to both aspects of my life. Peanut Butter Principles does that and more. The 47 leadership lessons will teach you basic human truths: take responsibility for yourself, what a goal truly is, wisdom for your journey, and many more. When we apply the principles in this book, we don’t just change our lives, we change the lives of the people we love and have influence over.”

Eric Franklin’s Peanut Butter Principles is simply outstanding! With its succinct focus, process-oriented style, and easily applicable lessons, I highly recommend this book for ANYONE who has ever been, is being, and will ever be a parent and/or guardian. Furthermore, I STRONGLY recommend this as required reading for a yearlong PLC (Professional Learning Community discussion in any K-12 and post-secondary environment. Assistant Principals, Principals, Curriculum Facilitators, Professional Development Coaches, Superintendents etc., use this book with your staff!!!!!! My husband serves as a high school assistant principal, and I am a former high school principal and current college instructor. Given our careers, coupled with our honorable title as parents of children at various stages of their lives, I am eternally grateful for the captivating wealth of information Mr. Franklin has chosen to share with the world through these easily relatable, and candid messages that some parents may not have even been aware – including us!! What makes the reading even more relatable is the homage Mr. Franklin pays to both his parents and his own family. He takes pages out of his own playbook!!! You won’t regret this reference tool!!!”
