Jumpstart Healthy Parent-Child Relationships

ILLUSTRATION BY TERRI SCOTT

Parenting with Hope: Manage Challenging Behavior with Consistency and Confidence is a resource for the real world. Chock full of information about the behaviors of children, it offers concrete strategies with step-by-step guidance to implement them at home. Photocopy worksheets to use and re-use as planning tools and as visual encouragement for children to progress toward desired behaviors that show they are growing and learning in  their awareness of their ability to be responsible for their choices and enjoy the positive results. Practical tips to use every day pepper the pages. And in the middle of all this also rises an understanding of how faith develops in a child even amid the years of challenging behaviors, encouraging parents  with hope that what they’re doing in the small moments matters in the big picture.
