Bec’s comment: In a world of dysfunction, there is an ever increasing need to raise children who will become functional healthy responsible adults. I read this book twice throughout raising our children. It brought practical tools to implement on a day to day/week to week basis, that would have long term positive effects. Whilst I could put up with or overlook some of their tantrums &/or annoyances (because I was their mum & I loved them unconditionally), that others may not. I realised that one day, my child would become and adult & the people who they would connect with may not appreciate or be able to overlook their ‘poor patterns of behaviour’. I desired them to grow into a healthy adult who would contribute to society – I desired that if my child were to marry someone else’s child that they would be a blessing to their future spouse & not a drain. It also raised awareness and equipped me into how to transition teenagers into young adults by approaching my parenting style differently. RAISING HEALTHY CHILDREN to become HEALTHY ADULTS is our fabulous responsibility as parents. This book gave me a FUTURE VISION for my kids & the COURAGE, DETERMINATION & TOOLS for my parenting NOW!

Sacred Parenting

Gary Thomas

 

Parenting is a school for spiritual formation—and our children are our teachers. Instead of discussing how parents can change their kids, Gary Thomas turns the tables and demonstrates how God uses our kids to change us. You’ll be encouraged by stories that tell how other parents handled the challenges and difficulties of raising a godly family. Grow closer to Christ and your children as you learn to:

  • Freely enjoy your kids for who they are.

  • Build a closer, grace-based family.

  • Reduce the pressure felt for your kids to turn out perfect.

  • Manage anger and negative responses towards your child’s behavior.

  • Increase your sense of worth and respect as a parent.
