As parents, we need to do everything we can to enhance our children's relationship with us, to influence their relationships with those outside the home, and most importantly, to advance their relationship with God. Designed for use in personal study or in small groups, The Parental Guidance Required DVD and study guide are practical resources that will help parents to ask themselves the important questions: Am I economizing my time with my child, or am I investing in my child by carefully developing the quality of our relationship over the long haul? Am I striving to control the influence that friends have in my child's life? Am I nurturing a healthy, eternal perspective that will help my child to weather the inevitable storms of life? DVD include 4 complete sermons and six group sessions that correspond to the companion study guide. Influencing Your Child's Future Of all the assignments God will give you during your time on earth, none may be more sacred than the task of raising your children. Parental Guidance Required Study Guide is designed to give you the counsel you need to help prepare your children for the future. Intended for use in personal study or in small groups, this six-session companion study guide to the Parental Guidance Required DVD is a practical resource that will encourage you to look at the relationships in your children's lives and ask the important questions: Am I developing a quality relationship with my child that will go the distance? Am I striving to control the influence that friends have in my child's life? Am I nurturing a healthy eternal perspective that will help my child to weather the storms of life? Asking the right questions is the key to helping you assess your family needs and ensure that the influence you have is one that will last a lifetime. Story Behind the Book In an effort to focus Multnomah's mission to equip the church and to make the "bride" more beautiful, the company developed a relationship with Andy Stanley and North Point Community Church to publish a selection of the church's resources and distribute them to a broader market. North Point is one of the most influential churches in the nation, and their teaching is already highly sought after. They have a voice for the 20- to 30-something generation. Reaching the church is a strategic goal of Multnomah, and we realize that the emerging generation needs resources that deliver truth in fresh, new ways. Andy's leadership will keep North Point on the edge for a long time to come.
