Parenting Kids and Children - Resources for Raising Christian Family

An Unintended Benefit of Saving Money

In April 2010, we gave up TV when we bought a new house. Our thinking was, "New house, new beginnings, let's try life without cable."

Is Easter Too Violent for Children?

We sometimes believe we’ll gain more of a hearing if we present Jesus as teacher but not as a former corpse. It is too disturbing, we think to ourselves, too weird. How then do we communicate the Easter story to children, as something more than dyed eggs?

Why Is Summer Camp So Good For Kids?

Summer camp is almost as American as apple pie and baseball. Movies have tried to document the uniqueness of this experience. Unfortunately, I've yet to see one that came close to pinpointing why a healthy week at summer camp is so good for a child.

Even in Christian homes, children sometimes bend the truth on purpose...

Teaching Children the Bible Can Be Simple

I remember feeling the full weight of my leather-covered adult Bible when I first sat down to teach my kids.

Teaching Your Children the Faith through Catechesis

Catechizing can help children learn the intimate workings of what it means to be a Christian.

Is Your Child Ready for a Cell Phone?

The decision of when to allow a child to get a cell phone comes with financial ramifications and more.

School Becomes Curse-free Zone

It is a shame that a public school has to take measures to curb cursing. I believe the best place to police language is the home. However, disrespectful language should not be tolerated anywhere.
