Purposeful Parenting, by Jean S. Barnes, is a Bible-based guide to being a better parent. Barnes does not gloss over the hard work involved in parenting but instead show parents how to use the Bible's wisdom to help with this life-building job.
She begins by listing six principles for parents, which she also calls six guiding steps for them.
One of the things I loved throughout the book was the use of little quizzes so parents are able to see what kind of parent they are. Plus there are references throughout to help parents set their path.
Included are topics such as Love, Discipline, Character, Perseverance and Teamwork. Then in the Appendix is a skills and ability checklist.
As my daughter is a parent of a young child, I am going to recommend this book to her and to others, no matter the age of their children.
I was given this book by Destiny Image, the author and bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.
