Discover A Better Way To Parent

How To Raise Sons And Daughters

Session 01 Give Up Control (Video Length - 44:49)

The goal of parenting is not to control your child’s life; they will quickly outgrow your authority and be independent individuals. Don’t miss the big picture of what God has called you to do.

Session 02 Shape Their Character (Video Length - 44:52)

Your children will reveal their lack of character over and over again. Learn how to lovingly expose the sin in their hearts and point them to the forgiveness of Jesus.

Session 03 Thrive In The Teen Years (Video Length - 45:20)

Culture portrays this period of life as a chaotic season to be survived, but the Bible is very optimistic about what can be accomplished. Learn how to make the most of the teen years and help them successfully transition from childhood to adulthood.

Session 04 Rest In God. (Video Length - 41:47)

Parents who rest in God will experience abounding joy as a mother or father. This hope-infused conclusion will remind you that God never calls you to raise your kids without first providing you everything you need.

"My bride and I are raising 4 children and we need help! It's easy to find parenting tips on how to correct our children's behavior, but Paul Tripp goes far beyond behavior; he takes us to the source of the problem - the heart. Parents, you need this now. You will surely be blessed."

- Webb Simpson Professional golfer 2012 U.S. Open Champion

"I am an imperfect parent. You probably are too. If you know the feeling, this will be both challenging and refreshing, and ultimately it will be a great blessing to your journey.
