Purposeful Parenting is not a how to do it manual. It is more a book of examples that any parent can choose to implement for help in raising their children. There are six chapters and each one is full with stories, thoughts, and resources. It can be used by parents of children of any age group. I received this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

Biblical Wisdom, Guiding Principles, and Practical Tips for Putting Purpose into Parenting As a veteran educator, educational psychologist, and mother Jean S. Barnes understands children. In her book “Purposeful Parenting – Six Steps to Bring Out the Best in Your Kids” she combines her practical training with Biblical parenting principles to help her readers put passionate purpose into their parenting:  to instill in their children a passion for: learning to love, develop self-discipline and character, accept responsibility, become competent, and persevere in difficult situations. Each of the six chapters in the book develops on of these principles. Chapter titles clearly define the content to be considered; each chapter begins with a thought provoking challenge, topical headings, Biblical principles, and practical pointers. Features within the chapters also include “A Step Toward…” and “My Purposeful Parenting Check-In” exercises with a unique emphasis and chapter summaries. Barnes sums up her conclusions in a closing section “Parenting Takes a Team” which clearly defines the working of parents, the school, and teaching and their interactive roles as a part of the team. She stresses the importance of developing friendships for social intelligence, the role of the church, and a reliance on God for instilling passion and purpose.  “Purposeful Parenting – Six Steps to Bring Out the Best in Your Kids” is a practical blending of Biblical wisdom and “best practices in psychology” on parenting. A valuable resource tool for every parent. A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
