Parenting Adult Children

Parenting Adult Children Karen O’Connor Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5, NIV) One Sunday I broke down in tears at a prayer meeting at church and asked what I could do to restore my adult son to me. He had made some chilling decisions […]

Dollars and Sense: Teaching Children to Handle Money

In the early 1700s, two men developed distinct reputations for themselves–one was Jonathan Edwards, a man of integrity, refinement and Christian character and the other was Max Duke, a well-known criminal. During the last two hundred years, their descendants have been traced. In Jonathan Edward’s line of descendants are 13 college presidents, 200 preachers, 60 prominent leaders, 90 physicians, 32 authors, […]

Questions Parents Ask About Self-Esteem

Human worth in our society is carefully reserved for those who meet certain rigid specifications. The beautiful people are born with it; those who are highly intelligent are likely to find approval; superstar athletes are usually respected. But no one is considered valuable just because he is!

Understanding Your Child’s Personality

Have you ever wondered how two children raised in the same home can be so unique and individualistic? How can one child be reverently quiet and withdrawn, while another–produced and raised by the same parents–is noisy and self-assertive?

The Invasion of Childhood Innocence

The warm summer breeze wafted across the screened porch carrying the sweet smell of honeysuckle. The night air was filled with the chatter of family talk as we shelled purple-hull peas. When the bushels of peas were finished, we rewarded ourselves with big, cool slices of watermelon. Pleasant memories of childhood still fill my head: catching lightning bugs in Mason jars, […]

Spending Time With Your Kids

DADDY, HOW MUCH DO YOU MAKE AN HOUR? “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away” (James 4:14). Money has no value in and of itself, it is just a unit of exchange. We exchange each […]

How To Pray For Children

Who will put forth the time and effort to maximize instead of minimizing the influence God will have upon a child’s life if prayer is made for them? “Children are an heritage of the LORD” (Psalm 127:3). A burdened heart . . . arising in the night . . . crying out to God . . . uplifted […]

The Family Game Plan

I discovered a spiritual truth, of all places, in the comic strip “Peanuts.” A disappointed Charlie Brown finds himself sitting on top of the baseball mound after a game muttering these words, “One hundred and forty to nothing… I just don’t understand it … and we were so sincere.” We want what is best for our children, but sincerity […]

Preparing a Child For Life

There are no perfect parents. No one knows that better than someone who is a parent. When you’re growing up, you are very aware of the mistakes your parents make with you. You promise yourself that when you have children you will not make these same mistakes with them. And for most of us, this is true. We made […]
