Every Christian Parent faces a daily dilemma: How can I bring up my children to be people of character in a culture that undermines my values? Here on Family Talk, media and cultural expert Rebecca Hagelin shares practical strategies for raising children of character. This book is the third edition, and includes a chapter on marriage. The first thing you do is wake up with a prayer in your heart for the day ahead of you. Your battle is not with your child, but with the enemy that behind it. What makes children happiest in life, are relationships with their mothers and fathers. Parents have the most influence on their child. They will realize that their fulfillment and purpose in life will come from recognizing who they are in Christ, and then strength will come to overcome temptations. Make your home inviting. Feed them and they will come. The kids will know you are fighting for them, not against them when you set standards. Over 60% of babies born in a family today, are born into broken families.
