Every parent hopes their kids will turn out right. They pray that when their children leave the nest, they will be ready to face the world. And they hope that their kids will be equipped to stand strong in life’s battles.There are no shortcuts to successful parenting–no secret formulas to raising kids of strength and character. However, there are steps you can take to prepare your children for the challenges ahead. But you’ll need an effective game plan. With warmth and conviction, Tim Kimmel outlines a strategy for positive parenting – a plan that gives you reachable goals, while allowing for your personal parenting style. You have only a few short years with your child...make the most of the time you have.Dr. Kimmel has two other parenting books that just came out, Grace Based Parenting and Why Christian Kids Rebel. Both of which are nominated for the Gold Medallion. Raising Kids would be the perfect addition to these books.
