Changing the heart is a powerful way to help children make lasting changes. God is ultimately the one to change a person’s heart but the day-to-day work of parenting is often used by God to do the long-term work of helping a child accept responsibility for their behaviors.

Parents are using strategies right now for giving instructions, correcting kids, addressing bad attitudes, and setting limits, but some of those parents are frustrated because their techniques are often counterproductive. Increased anger and yelling, for example, dominate many homes. 

Along with prayer for our children, the Parenting is Heart Work curriculum will equip parents in the most common areas of family life.  These videos and round table discussions will provide practical strategies to help parents resolve problems without using anger. Through Dr. Turansky and Joanne Miller’s teaching and group discussion, parents will get to know their children on deeper levels and discover that they can move their children along toward greater maturity.
