Back cover copy:
Do you feel trapped as a parent--weighted down by parenting advice and discipline strategies that do little to grow your kid's heart? Many parents do! After spending years working with parents as educators, counselors and authors, Ellen Schuknecht and Erin MacPherson realized that maybe-- just maybe-- parents can escape the trap of lifeless, rules-driven parenting and instead, joyfully grow and nurture their kid's hearts by:
* Teaching their kids to truly desire what is right instead of just follow a list of rules to avoid consequences.
* Valuing a true heart-to-heart connection over control and rules.
* Letting go of the expected discipline solutions to instead focus on growth, forgiveness and relationships.
* Allowing joy and hope to nurture their kid's spirits.
Sounds good, doesn't it? Through simple strategies and practical advice, Ellen and Erin show you how to replace control with connection, replace complacency with growth, replace fear with faith and to replace hopelessness with the hope that can only come from Him.
