Raising Kids
in a Hyper-Sexualized World

Book by Eliza Huie

Parents of teens face the challenge of raising their children in a sex–mad, sex–saturated world. Eliza Huie, a parent and Christian counsellor, takes you through, practically, how to walk with your teen in the midst of this hyper–sexualized world. The tips come in the form of what not to do, yet does so without giving a sense of judgment or failure. Instead, this short book takes a look at the value of reframing the mistakes both parents and teens may have already made and gives a hopeful picture of how our compassionate Father moves toward us in weakness.

Eliza Huie has written some other similar books which would be well worth a read, too!

Aren't They Lovely
When They're Asleep?

Book by Ann Benton

Ann Benton used to run parenting skills classes in local schools. People kept saying 'This is great, where do you get this stuff?'
She came clean, 'Actually, it's from the Bible.'

This book contains the wisdom distilled from Ann's popular seminars on parenting the next generation. She uses a 'God's eye view' of what we are really like in order to help people who are seeking to be responsible parents in an increasingly child-centred society.

You will learn six key concepts: accept, beware, communicate, discipline, evaluate and fear the Lord. These are applied with understanding and sensitivity.
