I remember one of the first times our younger daughter Amber vented her anger at me for something I did. In reality, it was something I didn't do that made her mad. She had asked me to help her with a paper she was writing for a middle school class. The paper required a lot of research, and Amber didn't know how to go about doing the research."There's nothing to it," I assured her flippantly. Then instead of showing her what she needed to do, I simply told her to get started, explaining that she would figure out how to do the research as she went along.She let out an exasperated sigh. "But Dad, I don't know how to--""Amber, just get started," I insisted with authority, "and you'll figure it out." Then I left the room.(from the introduction)When the author understood his mistake, he was able to go and talk with his daughter. As she vented, he began to understand what a capacity parents have to make their kids angry, and how he could change his approach to communicating with his children to improve their relationship. In the years since Roger Cross has been studying the things parents do that make kids angry, such as:playing favoriteshaving loose or confusing boundariesexpecting kids to fill adult roles and moreDrawing on his ministry of Youth for Christ along with a survey of one hundred students of varied ages and backgrounds, Roger Cross has created a practical, helpful book for parents who want to understand why their kids are so angry and what they need to do to change.

Why do some children grow up and then abandon the Christian values and convictions of their parents? What can parents do to prevent this all-too-common tragedy? Laura Lee Heinsohn's search for answers led to startling conclusions. Through interviews with more than 1,000 individuals about their own childhood and parenting experiences, she discovered consistently common themes. This book identities six critical needs of children and the six corresponding “clues” to meeting those needs and keeping the connection strong. Special features include questionnaires to help parents understand themselves and their children. Questions throughout will help parents understand the strengths and weaknesses of their parenting. Author shares inspirational thoughts of her own experiences as a parent.

Nice is not enough. We are raising a generation of "nice" kids. Nice kids are well behaved and look good on the outside, but they often lack courageous character inside. Offering practical wisdom gleaned from his experience as a parent and family coach, Tim Smith helps you move your kids from simply polite to truly compassionate. He targets nine key qualities children need but often lack and shows you how to build them into your children by modeling core values and biblical practices. Your kids can be--and indeed, are meant to be--kingdom builders who help bring God's light and life to others through their decisions and influence. "Being nice won't help them stand apart," Tim says. "We need to strategically train our children to engage and challenge the popular views of our culture." Here is a clear, down-to-earth resource that will help you do just that. But be prepared for change--in you, in your kids and in the world.

"Daddy I Want to be a Man". After his eight year old son Lance spoke these words, Jeff Brodsky began a ten year journey of discovery. Jeff was determined to find out what it meant to accept the responsibility of being a Godly father and parent to his children. As a Jewish believer, Jeff wondered why there was not a Bar-Mitzvah type of ceremony or Rite of Passage in Christianity. As he traveled throughout the world to more than forty coutnries, Jeff discovered that Christianity is one of the only religions that did nothing to recognize their children as they were Stepping into Adulthood. The Stepping into Adulthood program is an exciting opportunity for families and communities to instill the qualities of maturity and devotion into their children. Practical, Biblical, and educational, this book will change your life and the life of your child.
