Free to Parent: Escape Parenting Traps and Liberate Your Child's Spirit by Ellen M Schuknecht

Do you feel trapped as a parent-weighted down by parenting advice and discipline strategies that do little to help you nurture your child's soul or grow your kid's heart? Many parents do! After spending years serving parents as educators, counselors, and authors, Ellen Schuknecht and Erin MacPherson realized that maybe-just maybe-parents can escape the trap of lifeless, rules-driven parenting to joyfully grow and nurture their children's hearts by teaching their kids to truly desire what is right instead of just follow a list of rules to avoid consequences. By pursuing true heart-to-heart connection over parental control and rules and letting go of the expected discipline solutions to instead focus on growth, forgiveness, and relationships, parents allowing joy and hope to nurture their children's spirits.Sounds good, doesn't it? Through simple strategies and practical advice, Ellen and Erin show you how to replace control with connection, replace complacency with growth, replace fear with faith, and replace hopelessness with the hope that can only come from the God of love.
