If you're like most parents, you have developed your own parenting strategy-sometimes it seems to work, and other times-based on the way your child behaves-you wonder if it's working at all. There are countless ways to try to get a child's attention and to effect change-but here's the truth-unless you deal with a child through his or her heart, you are not likely to see lasting change. In this breakthrough book, you can learn to truly reach your child's heart to teach, train and build a tremendous relationship. You can turn correction times into learning experiences, equip your children to accept responsibility for their mistakes and meditate on the right things, influence and adjust the values and beliefs your children hold and maintain a relationship with your children through love and emotional connectedness.

What was your motivation behind this project? Behavior modification says things ike, "You can watch a video if you clean your room." This "I'll give you what you want if you do what I say" approach breeds selfishness in kids. There's a whole different way to parent. We're committed to showing you how.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? We started with a biblical study of the word "heart" in scripture. From the 750 verses that use the word "heart" we identified 9 functions of the heart and then applied that to parenting. Our goal is to help parents move from a simple behavior modification approach to a heart based approach. Awana purchased 5000 copies of the book for their new parent training program. Over 50 ministry leaders have endorsed this book. you can read them all at our web site biblicalparenting.org.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: We also offer free email parenting tips. We'd love to get you signed up to receive these heart based tips a couple of times a week. Blessings to your family. -Scott Turansky
