What if someone gave you a block of the finest marble with the task of creating a masterpiece that would be displayed for the entire world to see? Parenting is like that, except that instead of a block of marble we are given the delicate life of a child to shape and mold so they can become lifetime disciples of Jesus Christ. What an awesome task and responsibility! Where do you begin? When you face this momentous mission of building and molding a child of God, do you feel like screaming, “Help! I’m a parent”?
The good news is that the principles of parenting in Scripture are timeless and still relevant to parents today. Help! I’m a Parent: Christian Parenting in the Real World is founded on those principles and aimed at parents with children ages 8 to 12. It covers topics including homework, peer pressure and bullying, puberty and purity, screening screen time, healthy habits, spiritual growth, and more.
This resource can be utilized in a variety of settings including parents in their home, a large church group, prayer meeting, a Sabbath School class, a Home and School meeting, or a small group. In addition, the principles discussed are applicable to a variety of family make-ups including single parents, blended families, foster parents, divorced couples who are co-parenting, and grandparents raising their grandchildren.
Journey with authors Pamela and Claudio Consuegra as they explore the God-given role of parenting. You will be motivated to take up this exciting challenge and experience the blessings of parenthood. Paperback. Copyright 2016. 102 pages.
