Communication strategies for building a better relationship with your children, from a psychologist who has worked with families for over three decades.
Are you frustrated when your child is not responsive to your efforts to be a good parent? Are you shaking your head in confusion or barking orders as a last resort in getting through to him/her? Do you wish for more quality time with your child? Parenting is the toughest job—for which most parents have no training.
We tend to emulate our own parents, for good or for bad. In the Bible, Proverbs 22:6, we are told to “train your children in the ways of the Lord, so that when they are old, they will not depart from Him.” Teachable Moments: Building Blocks of Christian Parenting is a source book for parents and helping professionals who want both the spiritual context and the step-by-step practical parenting tools with which to be effective, engaged, Christian parents.

–Nine parenting perspectives to guide your understanding of your child
–How communication defines relationship and the four distinct types of communication to use when your child is not having problems
–Eleven specific communication tools and behavior management strategies, and more
The author, a licensed clinical psychologist with decades of experience in practice, also includes “Learn the Concept” exercises embedded within the chapters—so you can practice these tools and strategies and start enjoying a better relationship with your children today.
