We are excited that Mel Hayde's new book Toddler to Teen is now available.
Building on the success of the 20 000 sales of the Terrific Toddlers books, this new book has updated and expanded the original books and added key sections in each chapter for parenting the school years (ages 5 to 12) and the teen years (ages 13+).
Each short and easy-to-read chapter highlights practical activities you can include in a day that will promote the foundational skill of self-control. Once this is established, virtues such as kindness, cheerfulness, helpfulness, patience, obedience and sibling friendships can be established in the heart of your child.
The book will help you equip your child for adulthood, encourage them to make right choices for the right reasons, and give you confidence and direction in your parenting so you can enjoy your toddler, school age child, and yes, even yuor teen.
The book features a Dad-to-Dad section, a chapter of information on Cyber-parenting, 50 real questions from real parents with specific answers, and both parent and teen testimonies throughout.

Also available for facilitators are two documents comparing what is covered in Parenting from the Tree of Life with Growing Kids Gods Way. They can be accessed here under Resources.
Below is a summary of what is covered in the course:
Part One: Life, Children and Relationships (6 Sessions on DVD) speaks to the relational components associated with healthy parenting. Because children tend to reflect the priorities and values of their home life, what is important to Mom and Dad will become important to their children, and will influence what each child becomes in the future.
Part Two: Life, Children and Character Development (6 Sessions on DVD) covers critical components of character training and explains the guiding principles for raising children who are kind, courteous, respectful, cooperative, confident, and certainly well mannered. No child arrives at this level of moral distinctiveness if the home life from which he or she comes is not already conversant with such virtue. Part two is as much for parents as it is for children.
Part Three: Life, Children, Encouragment and Correction (5 Sessions on DVD) takes up the challenges associated with the correction side of training. Corrective is not all about fixing undesirable or wayward behavior—parents must also pay attention to the preventative components of training that reduce the amount of correction needed in the first place. Proactively encouraging behaviors that help children stay on track and knowing how to properly correct children to put them back on track is the focus of Part Three.
As many of you will be aware over the last few years Bill and Joan Grosser have been ministering in the Kimberley region in WA and developing parenting material based on the GFI material, especially for the Aboriginal population. They have been working alongside a small group of locals, including Greg and Linda Wilson.
Greg and Linda have been involved with Growing Families for some time and have been missionaries in a couple of different roles over a number of years, most recently with Kingdom Aviation in Derby.
We are thrilled that Greg and Linda are the first full time missionaries for Growing Families Australia. To enable this to happen we have established a new "branch", Growing Families Australia Missions which will administer their support.
Please click here to read their newsletter which gives more detail on what they will be doing.
If you would like to support Greg and Linda please download their newsletter and supporters form and send the details in to us.
If you would like to donate a one off amount to help with the start up and establishment of Growing Families Australia Missions please contact me at the office.
We are so excited by the doors which God has opened and are waiting in anticipation to see what He has in store for the Kimberley region and the way in which families will be changed by Him and for Him.
