Young David Robinson used to be amazed at all the things his dad could do. How could one man know so much about everything? 'Did you go to Dad school or something?' he once asked his father. No, Ambrose Robinson didn’t graduate with a master’s degree in 'How to Be a Great Dad.' But he could be the founder of 'Dad schools' all around the country. He and his wife, Freda, have a lot to teach us all about how to raise an MVP. Not just a Most Valuable Player, but a Most Valuable Person, too. Voted the NBA’s Most Valuable Player as the center for the San Antonio Spurs, David Robinson is perhaps its Most Versatile Person as well. A classical pianist, SAT whiz, computer genius, graduate of Annapolis, naval officer, Dream Team Olympics member, philanthropist, community activist, and Christian, he’s a true Renaissance athlete. Yet this thirty-year-old husband and father still asks his parents for advice. Wouldn’t you like to sit in the Robinson's living room and learn why David thinks he has the greatest parents on earth? How to Raise an MVP lets you feel like you’re at a warm and personal family gathering. Ambrose and Freda Robinson, along with their three children, David, Kim, and Chuck, share anecdotes of family life and offer insight into successful parenting. In the Robinson house there were no TV babysitters, no back talkers, and no underachievers. But there were three children who knew they were loved and that they had the potential to dream and to do anything they wanted to do. From bringing a baby home for the first time to watching their children leave the nest, Ambrose and Freda tell about raising a family and the lessons they learned along the way. They talk frankly about the hard times as well as the good times, and discuss specific issues such as honesty, academics, curfews, sibling rivalry, dating and sex, racism, anger, communication, building a career, and more. How to Raise an MVP is an upbeat and inspiring look at a family that models values that really work.
