Parenting: Mission Impossible, If You Choose to Accept It (and you have!)
For the Christian, the difficult task of parenting is not subject to the latest psychological fads presented on Oprah or the current New York Times best-seller on the subject. It is firmly anchored on what the Bible says, and the Bible is not silent on the topic. In this session, Robert presents three basic biblical principles that parents must understand before they are equipped to parent successfully: 1. Understanding oneself 2. Understanding one’s child 3. Understanding how one relates to his/her child. Grasping these truths experientially is vital if the parent hopes to win his/her child’s heart.Biblical Discipline - Raising an Eager, Obedient Learner

Teaching is downright impossible without a willing learner, no matter how good the curriculum or the teacher. The Bible teaches that proper discipline is an expression of love, and the one who neglects it really hates his child! Robert explains the distinction between discipline and punishment and proposes a model for discipline that invariably breaks rebellion and results in bonding between parent and child. What if your child obeyed at your first command, given in a normal tone of voice? What if the "ought to’s, need to’s and should’s" that motivate many children could be changed to "want to’s?" These are the results as a parent loves his children enough to discipline them diligently.Building Character into Your Child

Parents often confuse their job with God’s job in the life of their child. God has designed that He alone brings spiritual life. But He has given the parent the job of building character. What biblical character traits can we as parents self-consciously set as a goal for our children and how can we train them in such a way that that goal will be achieved when they leave our home as adults?Capturing Your Child's Heart

All the parenting techniques and methods in the world, even biblical ones, do no good if your child is resistant to receive your training. As long as he/she is a child and you can force him/her to comply with your wishes all seems well, but if you have not captured his/her heart, that serenity often proves to be a mirage that disappears during the teen-age years. How can you capture your child’s heart to insure that they will follow as adults the direction for life you have pointed for them?Finding a Mate in Treacherous Times - Are There Biblical Principles Practical for Today?

How did we get where we are in the mate selection game? Robert summarizes the history of dating and its effects, both on the individual and the culture. He then isolates several biblical principles that must be present in any courtship model, while recognizing the necessity for many personal variations. This inspiring lecture emphasizes broad biblical principles of the parent-child relationship rather than a rigid courtship model.
