PARENTING BEYOND YOUR CAPACITY by Reggie Joiner; Carey Nieuwhof
When parents work in tandem with the faith community to raise their children, they increase their parenting capacity exponentially.
Most parents have so many demands on their time that they can't be the kind of parent they desire to be. They need to know the Orange Factor: Two combined influences will make a greater impact on kids than just two influences. And it's true. Parents who partner with the faith community are the best way to bring the next generation into the family of God-and keep them there.
There are some things adults just can't do for kids. You can't force a toddler to love broccoli. You can't make a teenager not date someone. And you can't make a kid love God. At some point it just starts to break down.
Playing for Keeps is a book for parents and leaders (and anyone else who influences the lives of kids and teenagers). In Playing for Keeps, you will discover six things every kid needs over time, and 18 practical ideas so you can make what really matters matter more.
