Publisher's Description

Written for every mom who helps too much with homework just to impress the teacher and every dad who takes credit for his daughter’s soccer success, Trophy Child will give parents the encouragement they need to nurture their kids into who God created them to be.

 
Our culture’s obsession with achievement often leads parents to form expectations for their kids based on the world’s standards, not on the Bible. As a result, their kids feel they never measure up.
 
Trophy Child will help modern Christian parents create a home where children find success in following their heavenly Father’s leading for them—and readers know the joy of seeing their children embrace their full potential as children of God.

    Ted Cunningham in his new book, "Trophy Child" published by David C. Cook gives us Saving Parents from Performance, Preparing Children for Something Greater Than Themselves.

    From the Back Cover: The Anti-Tiger Mom Book

    Do you cringe when your kids fight in public because it makes you look bad? Do you find yourself helping too much with homework because you want the teacher to be impressed? Do you secretly take credit for your child's dance recital, soccer win, or spelling bee crown? You might be in danger of vanity parenting.

    Vanity parenting happens when our culture's obsession with performance leads us to form expectations for our kids based on the world's standards, not on the Bible. As a result, our children try to meet our emotional needs instead of growing into the calling God has for them.

    Trophy Child will help you create a home where your children find success in following their heavenly Father's leading for them—and you know the joy of seeing your children embrace their full potential as children of God.

    It is not easy being a parent. There are no how-to manuals for parents. Not even a Parenting For Dummies book is there to help out. Due to personal issues some parents see their children as a way to make up for failures in their childhood and stop seeing the child as a person but as a trophy. That cause all kind of conflict in the home, puts undue pressure on the child causing them deep resentment to the parent. There is a way to not only overcome this problem but repair whatever damage has already been done. Pastor Cunningham explains the problem and gives advice for repair and healing, both for the parent and the child. Nine chapters, each with a Parent Gut Check at the end provide strong Biblical counsel. If you are a parent or will be a parent then this book is for you. I guarantee you this is not a book you can only read once then put it on the shelf and forget about it. You will come back to it again and again. Everyone should have a copy of this book. It will help immensely!
