Raising kids is like walking a tightrope--there are many tensions that can cause parents to lose their balance. Should parents set boundaries or give kids freedom? Should discipline be based on punishment or nurturing? And when it comes to faith, how much should be left up to choice? Russ Robinson introduces parents to polarity management, showing them that raising kids is not about choosing one extreme over the other. Rather, it's about finding balance between the two. Discussing six common parenting challenges, Robinson urges parents to manage the tension between family boundaries versus personal freedom, tender nurture versus parental authority, and faith tradition versus private decision, among others. Walking the Parenting Tightrope is ideal for moms and dads seeking a new method of parenting, as well as small groups and Sunday school classes.
