Keys to Kids - Preface

A Keys to Parenting book

By Derek and Michelle Brookes 

When you were a child, chances are you thought you knew what a parent should be like and do. Now that you’re a parent, you understand that it’s not that simple. Learning to be a good parent takes time, determination, understanding, experience, laughter and tears, prayer and patience, and above all love.

How do you teach a child right and wrong? What is the balance between giving freedom and setting limits? When do children need praise and encouragement, and when do they need loving correction?

Keys to Kids gives practical advice to help you tackle these tough issues, and will draw you and your family closer to the One who has all the answers.
