Item description for Confident Parenting by Jim Burns...
Overview Meet Mark and Becky, two normal parents trying their best to raise normal kids. But as their children grow older, these sincere parents have a growing sense that they are in over their heads. After all, it's not like children come with a 445-page instruction manual or a 24-hour customer service line. Yet the problems and difficulties Mark and Becky face are not unusual or far-fetched--in fact, they are the normal, day-to-day battles most parents share.
So why is it still so hard? Because no one showed them the basics of good parenting.
In Confident Parenting, Jim Burns weaves together the fictional story of Mark and Becky with common sense and accessible parenting tips and strategies. Part story, part information, each chapter explores a different aspect of parenting, such as balancing self-care with family care, and includes the ingredients involved in proper discipline.
With more than 20 years of experience counseling hundreds of families and children, Burns offers time-tested advice in a painless and creative way, helping parents everywhere lay a positive foundation for raising healthy families.

Excellent! Nov 21, 2009
This product came WELL in advance of when it was scheduled to come and was in the condition that it said it would be :)
Practical, godly concepts, thanks! Dec 26, 2008
As a homeschooling Mom of 4, who works part time, I feel a bit frazzled from time to time. Last year my new year's "resolution" was to be more intentional. God led me to this book, which speaks directly to this concept. We all come into adulthood with good and bad experiences in our lives. Some more of one than another. Either way we need to think about what we think God is calling us to be in our families and intentionally create that. It is so easy to fall into our old behavior patterns, but God through the Bible and other people like Jim Burns can give us what we need to be who He calls us to be! I'm ordering another Jim Burns book now! Thanks Jim!
