Parenting Foundations:

Nurturing with Insight and Disciplining in Love

Christian, Bible-based parenting book with advice for individuals,
couples, small groups, cell groups and adult Sunday school classes

We can turn to God for the ultimate parenting advice. In an age of thousands of books and numerous constantly-changing theories on parenting, it's comforting to know that the Bible teaches how to bring up children who know his word and are obedient, respectful, loving, happy and creative.

This Christian parenting book gives Bible-based advice for married couples and single parents. In these pages, Doug Britton gives Christians and others practical, biblical guidelines on topics ranging from praising to disciplining ... without child abuse.

Written for parents of children from one to eighteen years of age.

In these pages, you will discover how to:

  > Communicate with respect and love. Learn communication tools that work.

  > Center your home in the Lord. See how to introduce your child to Jesus.

  > Take a position of authority. Read how to chastise or discipline, yet be friendly.

  > Discipline wisely

  > Conduct family meetings. See how to get your children involved in discussions.

  > Cultivate Christian character development. Help children grow in the fruit of the Spirit.

  > Encourage responsible behavior. Develop honesty, responsibility and a work ethic.

This book is designed for individual or group study. It is ideal for a six-week or twelve-week small group or classroom study.

Each chapter is interactive, with personal application questions scattered throughout to help you put its biblical advice into practice. The book is comprehensive and detailed, yet easy to use and practical.
