9780801064586: Parenting with Purpose: 12 Biblical Traits to Prepare Kids for Life

Every Christian parent longs to raise godly children, but for many moms and dads that goal is just too vague. Parenting with Purpose gives families the clear biblical direction they need. Its unique approach to character training helps parents focus their child-rearing efforts on a precise target: preparing children for life. Buchanan uses the biblical qualifications for elders and deacons as the foundation for character development. These twelve traits provide parents with practical solutions for everyday situations such as chores, sibling rivalry, whining, lying, and more. Plus, each chapter includes a section of reflective questions to further assist families in applying the principles studied. But character training involves more than just influencing the outward behavior for the moment-it means transforming the heart so that it desires what is right for a lifetime. This book shows parents how.
