Parenting on Purpose

Every parent needs good advice and practical suggestions about raising their children. This series of audio lessons by Jay & Jody Hancock includes sessions on raising responsible kids and the ICE Plan.  Listen to the lessons recorded live as a part of the "Parenting Matters" series at Carmel Baptist Church in Charlotte.

From Jay & Jody:

We were blessed in the early years of our marriage to go to a parenting seminar to hear about raising responsible kids and having the proper priorities in parenting. Bob Barnes was the speaker and many of the ideas (including the ICE plan) come from Bob. We have tested these ideas and added our own for this series. More recently, our parenting style has been influenced by John Rosemond. Parenting by the Book and Teen-Proofing are our favorites by Dr. Rosemond. Check out Dr. Barnes' and Dr. Rosemond's books on Amazon.com. Or visit www.parentingonpurpose.org (Dr. Barnes) and www.parentguru.com (Dr. Rosemond).
