Screens and Teens: Connecting with Our Kids in a Wireless World

She exposes the lies that technology can teach your teen, guides you in countering those lies with biblical truths and helpful practices, and shares success stories of families who have cut back on technology and prioritized each other.

Intentional Parenting: 10 Ways to Be an Exceptional Parent in a Quick-Fix World

by Doug & Cathy Fields
Intentional parenting is the opposite of quick-fix parenting. Intentional parenting is a way to raise children to become healthy, independent young adults. It's based on solid principles which, applied over time, actually result in less-stressed parents and happier, better-adjusted, and more successful kids. Intentional parenting means you've got more than good intentions; you've got a plan. (And it's always better to have a plan for dealing with the stuff that inevitably crops up between parents and their kids than it is to wing it.) In their book, Doug and Cathy Fields draw on their own extended experience with young people and as parents to guide you through 10 specific actions that will help you become a more effective parent.

Gist: The Essence of Raising Life-Ready Kids

by Michael W. Anderson, L.P. & Timothy D. Johanson, M.D.
This book reviews and examines what the journey to adulthood entails, along with a clear look at those parenting efforts that over the years have been proven not to work. The book looks at many aspects of life that wouldn’t typically be associated with parenting. The focus is on instilling “life readiness” in age-appropriate ways at any stage of child-rearing. Parents who read this book will understand why their previous parenting efforts may have been frustrating and futile, and they’ll learn how to prepare “life-ready” kids with less drama and more joy.
