Be the Parent Your Family Needs
If we are truly honest, most of us don't really know what we're doing as parents. We have good intentions, but daily frustrations and ongoing struggles might be evidence that we were better prepared to drive a car or pursue our career than raise children.
To counter the usual trial-and-error method of parenting, Jim Burns offers time-tested advice and strategies for today's busy families. Infused with his signature candidness and practicality, each chapter explores a different aspect of parenting – from breaking generational chains of dysfunction and creating a warm atmosphere at home to handling discipline issues and blessing your children with a legacy of faith. Helpful follow-up exercises and questions along the way reinforce the basics of good parenting and provide a foundation for developing your own family plan.
You won't find any quick fixes here, but you will learn how to make a positive difference in your family.
"Jim Burns is a trustworthy voice on family issues; always practical, insightful, and biblical. Parent, Jim has a good message for this great mission."
—Max Lucado, minister and bestselling author
