Product Description

Any honest parent will admit they often feel like a complete failure. But what if being a success isn't God's highest goal for parents? What if he gives us children to grow us up, even as we do our best to raise our kids well? Imagine what would happen if you began to prize what you're being taught by your children's quirks, failures, and normal childhood dilemmas, rather than worrying about whether you're doing everything right as a parent. In this book, Dr. Dan B. Allender offers a refreshing biblical approach to raising your kids--one that will free you not only to be a better parent, but also a better person...one who allows your children to help you grow up into godly maturity. Learn how you can let go of the pressure to make sure your children succeed, and instead discover how to grow into spiritual maturity by listening to your children.

Publisher's Description

Parenting with Humility...We often realize that we learn as much from our children as they learn from us. So why don’t parents approach the task of child-rearing as a learning experience, rather than a mandate to make sure their kids succeed in life?

To reduce the pressure and enjoy greater closeness in your family, turn your parenting upside-down by allowing God to use your children to help you grow up. Imagine what would happen if you began to prize what you’re being taught by your children’s quirks, failures, and normal childhood dilemmas, rather than worrying about whether you’re doing everything right as a parent. Now you can let go of the pressure to make sure your children succeed, and instead learn to grow into spiritual maturity by listening to your children.
