With all the changes that occur from infancy to independence, parents remain as one of the few constants in a child’s life. Though no job is more difficult, no reward is more fulfilling than to see your child blossom and grow
“ …in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.”
Kids are a lot like kites—they struggle to become airborne, yet need the stability of the string. Your role as a parent is to prepare your “kite” for flight. In these Keys for Living, examine the God-ordained roles for mothers and fathers, different parenting styles that lead to problems, how to maintain the proper balance between love and limits, and the process for “letting go” of your child. Discover how to develop a plan for providing hope and help to hurting parents.
