Purpose Filled Parenting stems from the idea that great kids don’t just happen but that there are things that parents can do with purpose to foster an environment where kids can shine. A parent’s dream for their child is often rooted in that parent’s own experiences. The chapters in this book are designed to help parents examine their own upbringing and utilize these experiences to make more informed choices for their children. Each child has their own path, but parents are tasked with the responsibility to give their child the optimal opportunity to reach their potential. This book is aimed with providing parents with the essential ingredients that kids need for success. It is replete with practical ideas, wisdom, and experiences. It derives from academic research, professional experiences as a marriage and family therapist, and personal experiences as a mother and daughter. Purpose Filled Parenting is truly a work from the heart that will engage both your head and your soul as you explore the essential ingredients to success in learning to parent your child on purpose.
