Free Family Parenting Resource . . . Freedom Parents!

Last year I asked the question on CM Connect, "What resources do you provide for parents and grandparents in your ministry?" and Ben Fowlkes replied with a link to an amazing resource, which I am very happy to share with you! Ben said, "We find resourcing parents is very important. Sometimes they have the desire to raise their children the right way, they just don't know where to start. So we came up with a resource website which has been very successful." He shared the link to freedom parents and I can not recommend it highly enough! 

If you follow the links you'll find a wealth of resources, including ParentFurther  from the Search institute. They say, "From time to time all parents need a little help. Sometimes a piece of solid, encouraging advice can help you have an 'ah-ha' moment which changes the way you think and act. Instead of focusing on what's wrong with children, our positive, strength-based approach to parenting focuses on what's right with children (and parents) and the small, everyday steps you can take to help children be successful in the future."
Providing practical, everyday parenting tips and helpful advice for difficult situations, ParentFurther is your online resource which will help you
  • find the support and knowledge you need to help your kids grow up successfully;
  • Focus on the things which matter most to your family."
You'll also find links to LifeWay's Levels of Bible Skills and links with movie and video game reviews and so much more! Just as with grandma's cookie jar and Splink, this is another free resource you can make available to the parents and grandparents in your ministry which will support, encourage and equip them as they strive to pass on a heritage of faith to their children and grandchildren!
