In a national survey of the state of families in America (Bowman, 2012), parents reportedly believe that raising children today is more complicated than it used to be. Along with that, most perceived that the quality of American family life was declining. In addition, 55% of the parents surveyed expressed a concern that they were not doing a very good job of parenting.
In essence, the study concluded that, “for today’s mothers and fathers, there is no clear map that charts the path for nurturing the next generation of adults.” (Bowman, 2012, page 10)
We bring you good news. There is a map! And, that map that charts the path of parenting for us is the word of God. The principles of parenting in scripture are timeless.
The purpose of this resource, Help, I’m a Parent! Christian Parenting in the Real World, is to inspire and encourage you, as parents, on your journey to be the disciple-makers of your children. You will be motivated to take up the exciting challenge and blessings of parenthood. We invite you to journey with us as we explore your God-given role of parenting.
