Parenting Your Children Into Adulthood : Forming Lifelong Friendships with Adult Children
Parenting Your Children Into Adulthood, offers parents encouragement, resources, spiritual guidance and practical applications that empowers and equips them to prepare their children to become emotionally and relationally mature adults. The PAC model invites parents to utilize the characteristics of nurture, values, mutuality and interdependence as building blocks of discipleship and maturity that empowers children to understand what is best and good about relationships and family life. I believe that parents are the gatekeepers of truth, faith, hope and righteousness. Their children will influence cultural values concerning relationships and family life over the next twenty years. Parenting Your Children Into Adulthood, will assist parents to empower their children to be the change-agents in a culture that struggles to develop and maintain long-term relationships. I am hopeful that parents be encouraged and equipped to raise up a generation that turns our culture toward biblical values and healthy family life. Couples who read Parenting Your Children Into Adulthood, will be eligible to receive a free inventory. The Parent-LIMRI generates personalized worksheets and growth plans that identifies areas of parental agreement (strengths) and disagreement (improvement needed). These worksheets utilize Scriptures, principles, discussion questions and practical applications that enriches couple satisfaction in the area of parenting our children.
