It is so full of good ideas, scripture, instructions, solutions, advice, stories and questions that people of any age should be able to gain something from reading it.
Jean S. Barnes, the author, has over fifty years of experience working with children and parents. She has taught in public schools and worked as a counselor. She has written a book that can help teach everyone how to be a parent. She recognizes that being a parent does not usually come naturally, but requires a lot of hard work and determination.
"Purposeful Parenting" is broken into six chapters. They are very easy reading, and easily understood. The chapters cover loving unconditionally, discipline, pursuing passion, developing character, being responsible and perseverance. Each section is broken down into smaller, easy to digest sections. Barnes reminds us that all parents should be tapping into available resources for help. Teachers, schools and churches are usually available to provide teaching, training, insight and support. Also our family, but most importantly, God! When we allow God to be our greatest source of support we are doing something that is not only helpful for our children, but also for ourselves.
I would recommend this book for parents everywhere, no matter the ages of their kids. The book is so full of wisdom, advice, and even some good common sense reminders, that it will benefit the reader.
