9780310232964: Raising Great Kids for Parents of Preschoolers Leader's Guide

Raising kids of character is a daunting task, so there's no better time to start than when they're young! The first few years of life is the most critical period of growth and development. Infants start the process of trusting the love of Mom and Dad and God, toddlers begin experiencing freedom and responsibility, and children start understanding how to function in the real world. In short, this is the period in which a child's soul is developed. As a parent, you are right at the center of that process. It's impossible to overestimate how important a role you play in rearing your child. As the Bible teaches, God shows us how to trust in him even at my mother's breast (Psalm 22:9). But most parents feel overwhelmed by the complexity of the job. With so many things to worry about, how do you know the real tasks and goals of parenting? Many moms and dads become discouraged or don't know where to start. We wrote Raising Great Kids and developed this curriculum to help you. In this video curriculum just as in the book we offer you a structure for approaching parenting. We provide a road map for creating character in your children the ability to function as God designed them to function in the world. The biblical principles set forth in the book apply to all ages and stages of kids, so you can use them as a guide for all the years you parent. This video curriculum, however, deals specifically with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. It addresses, in a practical, hands-on manner, situations and issues you encounter with children five years old and younger. Our goal is to help empower parents of these children moms and dads like you to become intentional and effective in your parenting. We're glad you've decided to invest the time and effort in your children by working through Raising Great Kids for Parents of Preschoolers. We pray that God will use this study to help your parenting be the successful and worthwhile relationship he designed it to be. We appreciate your labors as a parent---and may God bless you!

From the Publisher:

It Takes the Tender Strength of Grace to Raise Children of Character and Faith Some parenting books offer a by-the-numbers and keep-the-rules approach to raising and disciplining children. But Raising Great Kids offers a flexible, compassionate, and effective way to raise kids. >From the moment parents cuddle their infants to the day they wave good-bye to their high school graduates, raising children is a complex and often bewildering task. And every expert has a different opinion on how to discipline children so they will be polite, loving, and able to function as mature adults. Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend avoid the twin extremes of permissiveness and repression. The authors of the award-winning Boundaries now offer parents a sensible, biblical, and proven parenting plan that takes them from the newborn to teenage years. Raising Great Kids recognizes that parenting is not just intellectual work--it also demands emotional maturity and spiritual wisdom. It's a job as individualized as each child. So instead of taking a one-size-fits-all approach to parenting, this book enables moms and dads to be creative and compassionate, instilling character in their children without sacrificing the sense of love and security every child needs. In conjunction with MOPS? (Mothers of Preschoolers International), the authors have written this book in response to the growing need for a parenting resource that includes both developmental and spiritual perspectives. Written by two licensed clinical psychologists who have worked in private family practice for over 20 years, this guide helps today's parents raise their kids into tomorrow's mature, loving, and productive adults.

From the Author:

Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend are popular speakers, licensed psychologists, co-hosts of the nationally broadcast “New Life” radio program, and co-founders of Cloud-Townsend Communications. They are best-selling authors of several books, including Safe People, Twelve “Christian” Beliefs That Can Drive You Crazy, The Mom Factor, Boundaries with Kids, and the Gold Medallion Award-winning Boundaries
