Some of you may recall that we shared with you about the Christian Parenting Handbook about a year ago. Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller have now come out with a new parenting resource specifically for families with teens and preteens. As part of the team of bloggers that are helping to launch The Family Toolbox, which is described in further detail below, our family has been viewing the DVD segments and having some great family discussions on how we could all do things a bit differently to bring greater harmony and communication between our teens and ourselves. Please stay tuned in the coming days for a full review of this new resource and the impact it has had on our family.
The Family Toolbox is a DVD/video-driven program that brings parents and teens together for constructive dialogue around significant issues of discipleship. Conversation is sparked by engaging video clips. Sixteen Life Success Principles are communicated through eight lessons that give parents and teens biblically-based, practical topics for discussion. The format grabs teens and gets them interacting.
The Family Toolbox has 8 lessons. Each one has a 1-2 minute scene of a family living life and experiencing common challenges in their relationships. A discussion guide prompts dialogue between parents and teens and a 10-minute teaching session for parents featuring Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN gives practical tools to use right away.
