Parenting

Of all of the endeavors in a lifetime, none may be more sacred or more challenging than raising a child. A parents’ job is incredibly complicated. The emotional, social, and spiritual growth of a child are permanently marked by what their parents do and say. And, if parents aren’t intentionally impacting their child’s view of the world, the media, peers, and other outside influences will fill the gap.

So, the question is: How do parents raise wise and loving children who have a vibrant relationship with Jesus?

Whether you’re preparing to welcome an infant or seeking to connect with a teenage son or daughter, Warehouse 242 wants to partner with you on the journey.

We believe that God wants to revolutionize our thinking about parenting. If you’re wondering where to start, here are a few suggestions:

      • Boundaries with Kids – by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend
      • Five 60 minute audio CDs – As any parent knows, simply telling kids to “do the right thing” isn’t enough.  And ‘making them mind’ is often futile. Boundaries With Kids provides guidance based on Biblical principles and helps grown-ups teach children how to become stewards of their lives, behavior, and values.

        • Joining Children on the Spiritual Journey – by Catherine Stonehouse
        • Can faith in God begin early in a child’s life? Yes, but both the church and the family must be involved in the nurturing process. This book shows how the spiritual life of a child develops and how parents can enhance the process.

          • Loving Our Kids on Purpose – by Danny Silk
          • Rather than the traditional approaches that train children to learn to accept being controlled by well-meaning parents and adults, this book teaches parents how to train children to manage their freedom and protect their important heart-to-heart relationships.
