This book was birthed after seeing so many students come into my office day after day and tell me all kinds of horror stories about their home life. So this book is written to express the passion in my heart to bring forth a realization of God's Word and His standard of parenting, a standard that never fails if used according to the way it was written and established. I hope to express that God's Word is the only groundwork and foundation laid out for parents or caregivers to follow when raising children to be morally and righteously sound. Parenting is one of the most important roles that God designed for mankind, and it is time for us to take this role seriously. I want parents to know that Christian counseling is an essential tool that can be use to raise godly and biblically moral children. My ultimate desire is to educate, equip, and empower parents with the necessary tools to raise productive, educated, law-abiding, and God-fearing children. I would also like to leave the reader with the knowledge of how proper counseling and guidance can shape the emotional, physical, social, and spiritual nature of a child in a form that is pleasing to God.

Rather than dread those temper tantrums, embrace them. Consider them an opportunity to practice new skills with confidence and become empowered as you parent. In "Parenting with a Purpose," author Diana R. Boggia shows you how to embrace those moments as she presents strategies to remedy misbehavior, increase self-confidence, and empower you as you learn to take control in a positive way, without yelling or harsh punishment. Culled from her weekly syndicated newspaper parenting column, Family Matters, Boggia's guide paves a path for parents, providing practical, easy-to-apply strategies to eliminate daily chaos and resolve behavioral concerns with ease. She discusses how to retrain your child with positive interventions to eliminate confrontations, de-escalate temper tantrums, soothe your child to sleep, or implement a time-out with success, not anger; teach your child to wait patiently while you are on the phone, to pick up after himself, to develop thoughtful manners, and to develop a strong sibling bond, all accomplished while building independence and self-confidence; communicate so your child can understand exactly what you are asking of him; implement the effectiveness of multisensory communication, which can change the dynamics of your entire family. "Parenting with a Purpose" shows you how to incorporate small changes that will make a difference in your child's life and help you to parent with passion and joy. Anyone can be a parent, but it takes a parent armed with skills and continuous dedication to raise a resilient, thoughtful, self-confident child.

Parenting with a purpose is the process designed by God during which each child is led to establish a foundation on which he can build a responsible, productive adult life. There are many situational variations of this process, but each variation includes a commitment to three fundamental building blocks.

Parental Attitudes Teenage Discipline Defiant Behavior in Children – Boot Camps Taking on the Responsibility of Raising a Girl Child Mama, daddy, Why Do Not You Listen? Conclusion Author Bio What Do You Mean by Parenting Responsibly? “It is not enough just becoming a parent; you need to take on the responsibility of a lifetime of conscientious guidance. No man should bring children into the world who is unwilling to persevere to the end in their nature and education.” [Plato – 427-347 BC] This was written millenniums ago, by one of the most famous philosophers of Classical Times, Plato, but even though we read his books and his system, we definitely do not know how to apply his teachings in bringing up children, responsibly and conscientiously. The Science of Living is a series, in which you take example from daily life, and try to implement them in your own lifestyle and gain guidance from the lessons taught to you by the people who have gone before you based on their experience, knowledge and wisdom. This particular book is going to tell you all about parenting responsibly, and whether you are doing it for your own children, or are you just shirking responsibility?

"Dr Philip Dembo presents in his new book, THE PARENT COACH, a model of parenting that finally addresses our nations ongoing crisis...We are raising children with little or no character or conscience. The generations of young people have little work ethic, little worry about how their actions affect others, and seem to want it all with little sacrifice. The book looks at the current parenting strategies as a contributor to the underdevelopment of children today. Parents, in all their effort to gain compliance from their children, are actually interfering with their development. What do we do now? How do we undo what we have been doing? THE PARENT COACH gives us a model that links the development of a child's ""true voice"" with his/her actual experience to the strategies of parents and their important role in ""coaching"" their child's journey through their own growth.

You don't accept the behavior, but you are there to guide him through it. This book provides you with the tools you need to handle conflict as you see fit. What worked one day may not work the next.
Author: Nina V. Garcia
In this practical, eye-opening and action-oriented book, Nina Garcia explains how to use connection to raise well-behaved kids and strengthen your parent-child relationship. You'll learn: * How to diffuse and prevent tantrums and outbursts * How to better communicate with your child * Practical advice on structuring your day around routines * The secret to starting your day off right with your child * How to parent calmly and not lose your temper * And so much more... Maybe you're fed up with your child's outbursts and wonder how many tantrums are too many. Or you want to address his behavior with empathy and patience rather than through punishment. Perhaps you want to lessen fighting as well as equip your child with the skills to prevent arguments in the first place. You've tried time-outs. Counting to three before they're really in trouble. Maybe you've lost your temper. Except nothing is working, at least in the long run. You continue to butt heads-and you're exhausted with having to deal with yet another day of disciplining. And here's why: we've got this discipline thing all wrong. We assume discipline is about punishment, or we assume it's what we need to take away from them to curb misbehavior. We mistakenly believe that the main purpose of discipline is to stop tantrums and outbursts at all costs, as quickly as possible. Let's get to the real definition of discipline: discipline is teaching our kids. Because isn't that what parenting really is? Your job is to arm them with the skills they need and would serve them well in the future so they grow into kind adults who can regulate emotions or empathize with others. They'll be adults who treat others with respect and don't expect the world to bow down to their wishes. The kind of person you'd want your child to eventually grow up to be. With each outburst comes the opportunity to help them develop these skills. They learn more about their feelings and appropriate ways to express them. A child who can articulate "mad" can identify that emotion and use techniques to convey frustration. So that next time, there won't be a tantrum to get their point across but rather a more mature discussion or a different way to control their temper. And the best way to discipline is through connection. As ironic as it sounds, we need to connect with our kids when they're acting up. The times when they're most unpleasant are when they need us the most. Connection works to prevent outbursts as well as better handle them when they inevitably happen. This doesn't mean you'll be permissive. You still need to enforce limits and set boundaries. You won't let your child continue to jump on the couch or color on the walls when he's not allowed to. But you focus on what you want your child to learn from the incident rather than only making sure he doesn't do it again. Because yes, it's important your child stops coloring the walls. But it's equally important for him to develop the skills to communicate and make better decisions. You don't accept the behavior, but you are there to guide him through it. This book provides you with the tools you need to handle conflict as you see fit. What worked one day may not work the next. And what worked for your first child may be ineffective with your second. You don't have to get it "just right." Parenting with Purpose is for parents who want to raise their children using intention and mindfulness.
