Publishers Description Today's parents are constantly asking themselves, "Am I doing enough for my children? Do I have enough influence to make sure they turn out right?" Because we have bought into the myth that parents have less influence on their children than schools, media, government, or the church, many parents have relinquished their brief window of opportunity to make a difference. "Shaping the Next Generation" helps parents grasp God's vision for their children and design an intentional character-building strategy that really works. Parents discover effective ways to nurture and discipline children up to age twelve, learning how to balance instruction and correction in the discipline process. Charts, worksheets, sidebars, and appendices offer further resources for helping parents disciple their children and pass the faith on for generations to come.

Solid, Sensible Parent Training from a Christian Perspective Sep 13, 2006
Among the best materials from a Christian perspective. We use the video course (published by LifeWay) as one of our recurring parent training courses. The Atchinson's come from a Christian perspective but they draw a lot on the traditional, common sense model of parenting. For example, on the topic of integrity David tells a story of a boy fishing for bass with his dad. They catch a prize winning bass just 45 minutes before the start of the season. But the dad points out that they can't legally keep it. Understandably the boy protests, but in the end agrees and somewhat heavy hearted, they return the fish to the water, hoping they can catch him again. The boy grew up and they never caught another that big. But the boy never forgot that lesson and it went with him into manhood. How does Atchison know? Because he was the boy. Now as a successful architect that principle has guided him in business and in all of life.
The Atchinson's are themselves are the real thing. We have used the video curriculum published by LifeWay for several years and on it you can see the genuiness of David and Elaine as they interact with their own kids, who by the time of the video were young teens.
