Publisher's Description

How do friendships help us to be better parents?


Overview


New parents can feel overwhelmed, insecure, incompetent, and inadequately prepared, according to Mimi Greenwood Knight in her article for CHRISTIAN PARENTING TODAY. Knight said she was also lonely and starved for adult interaction as a stay-at-home mom. Building a community of friends helps alleviate these doubts and gives moms shared wisdom and skill, comfort, reassurance, and encouragement.


This study looks at why it is important for moms to make time for friendships, and how covenant friendships strengthen us emotionally and spiritually. We also examine how intergenerational friendships and mentors add valuable wisdom to our parenting skills.
