Since parenting is not for the weak or cowardly, this book is a must for any parent who wants their children to achieve all God has in mind for them to become.
Evans, GA (PRWEB) June 14, 2011
While teaching in elementary and middle school, Nancy McLoughlin was asked several of the same questions by parents: “Why is it so hard to be a parent?” and “What am I doing wrong?” Nancy began compiling answers pulled from her own experience as an educator and parent, along with biblical justification, which became her practical and God-centered guide to parenting, 'Principles to Survive and Thrive in the Daily Challenges of Parenting' (published by WestBow Press).
McLoughlin says it was at the fervent request of her 85-year-old aunt, who had been frustrated at seeing the negative paths of her own children and grandchildren that she finally decided to share her tips in print. “She begged me to write a book that would give hope to parents who are struggling with the challenges of parenting,” says McLoughlin.
'Principles to Survive and Thrive in the Daily Challenges of Parenting' contains ten principles that, when followed whole-heartedly and in prayer, is meant to change a parent’s heart and develop strong, Christian children. The book includes valuable information McLoughlin learned in teaching seminars, management seminars while managing at a large pharmaceutical company and years of following God’s word in church.
“Since parenting is not for the weak or cowardly, this book is a must for any parent who wants their children to achieve all God has in mind for them to become,” says McLoughlin. “These principles work in every situation a parent might encounter and with every type of child.”
