Parenting Ideas That Work
Parenting ideas these days include a worldly philosophy of anything goes. Teens are often taught that there is no such thing as right and wrong, what some call ‘conditional ethics’ or ‘moral relativism’ meaning that we can each decide what is right for ourselves. Frankly, I don’t think much of that as a way of life, and even less of it as a worldview.
But are not here to discuss worldview or way of life. This is about bringing out the best in our youth, about creating in the next generation great people, individuals who make a positive difference in the world, not only because of what they do but because of who they are. And this will only happen if we are able to show them that (as grandma’s parenting ideas said) “you can do anything in life that you really set your mind to do.”
My parenting ideas are not revolutionary. They are, in fact based on tried and true methods combined with common sense, an understanding of human motivation, and a firm belief in cause and effect. Have you ever watched the TV show Supernanny? If you haven’t, the star (Supernanny) goes into homes teaching parenting ideas about family dynamics and how to deal with disruptive children in situations from mealtime tantrums and sibling squabbles to terrible travel and bedtime brawls. And one thing that always comes out in the end: to stop the difficulties, she helps the adults change and that begins to change the children’s behavior.
Isn’t that amazing? Not really. Every child is an individual miracle and is indeed completely unique. BUT, up until the age of about 10 years old, family in general and parents in particular exert overwhelming influence – virtually creating who this new person is (or at least how they act) up to this point. In other words, until each of us takes control of who we are, or until those that influence us change, the parenting ideas in our household shape and mold our behavior.
Controversial Parenting Ideas?
You will not find a load of psychobabble theory, only tested real world plans that will work if you work them. Thin, weak, generic stuff won’t do it. Weak parenting ideas and methods raise weak children or abusers who have learned they can run roughshod over people using weak methods. Are the thoughts you will find here controversial? To some….but are they right? You be the judge.
Are you confidant in your ability to raise your child right? Few of us are. Your children did not come with an operating manual. Worse, we are often little more than children ourselves when we undertake the task of “bringing up baby.” We are dedicated to helping families create a better world, one child at a time. If this is your first time here, read the rest…
If You Want To Learn How To Raise Your Child Right:
To that end, you will find many articles, videos, audios and some recommended tools on the pages here. But our primary purpose is to get the ebook Raise Your Child Right into as many parents hands as possible. That ebook is undergoing an updating/revision right now – subscribe to our Mailing List and you will be notified when the update is complete.
While most families today have more material & social advantages than any previous generation, raising kids is more frightening than ever! There are a great many tools available for the parent/guardian who truly wants to learn how to raise your child right, but most of them are broad, non-specific pieces or only pertinent with “difficult kids.” What about the difficulty just raising normal kids?
In the past the family was gathered close about, frequently with three generations living under one roof. All that experience was readily available to help with new children. But modern families are fragmented, living apart and often alienated. Dozens of experts offer hundreds of new and unique ‘theories’ about child rearing while the tried and true practices of the past are largely ignored or forgotten. On this site and in the ebook you will learn about the 7 Keys you need to know to Raise Your Child Right.
Raise Your Child Right: Does It Work?
We can’t live in the past, but there is a reason that people say “Experience is the best teacher.” Because It’s True! This content is the best possible fusion of modern and traditional knowledge. The methods presented are researched and time tested. Like everything real in life, the “proof is in the pudding.” Join us in our efforts to work, learn and grow together.
If you don’t know where to start I would recommend that all 7 Keys will be of use to you. But if you want to jump right in go to the Key that closest represents your child’s age. For example, for those with newborn or infants go to Raise Your Child Right Key #1: Starting Your Child Right.

Find Out For Yourself
After over 2 years of marketing my ebook training online, I have decided to make it available to interested parents for Free. The need today is greater than ever before as society moves in conflicting directions. We all need to hearken back to the tried and true methods of Raising Your Child Right that have never changed. But remember this: it does no good to have the best tools if you never take the time and effort to learn to use them efficiently. Download your copy of Raise Your Child Right here.

‘ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN AMERICA’ IDENTIFIES BIBLE VERSE THAT HE SAYS HAS DISAPPOINTED PEOPLE FOR GENERATIONS
Bestselling author Andy Andrews — who has spoken at the request of four different U.S. presidents and been hailed by the New York Times as “one of the most influential people in America” — spoke with Glenn Beck on Tuesday about a Bible verse that he says has frustrated people for generations.
From the book of Proverbs, the verse reads: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
Anderson said that “generations of people” feel like they have adhered to what the verse says, and are disappointed when their child goes astray as an adult.
Parents need to read where they are missing it, but do not realize it at all. Here is the link to the full article again:
We all would like to change the world, but for the most part we don;t really even try. Why? Because all our lives we have n-been told “you can;t fight City Hall” or “one person really can’t make a difference.”
But it is not true! We tend to have a belief that changing the world would take some monumental effort or could only be accomplished after a lengthy process. It is not true – YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD TODAY! By doing one simple thing you can change the world around you and if a bunch of us take this seriously the effect that will take place will be Earth shattering, and tomorrow will be an even better time to be alive than today.
Now here is the thing – you need to go out and do this immediately, and you need to find a way to remind yourself and others to keep doing it and as Dr. Seuss said: “Oh the places you’ll go!”
I am not necessarily a fan of most media stars, I believe that their lifestyles tend to lead them down the wrong path and end up degrading them. Yet many of them, when they recall where they came from and what it took to achieve their success offer teaching points we all need to hear.
Ashton Kutcher is very popular with young people today and in this acceptance speech at the Teen Choice Awards August 2013, he makes some points we can all learn by.
