Is Parenting a Challenge?

Today's parents face complex issues like discipline, poor friend choices, imbalanced life, time, excessive use of technology, disrespect, lousy decision-making of their kids, connected but disconnected kids, and school problems all the time. The biggest parenting struggles aren't always as much about the child but the parent's challenges of facing issues that are very complex and new to them. Without the support of extended family or community and the experience gained from those relationships, parenting can be a daunting task. Compound that with the parents' voice being drowned out by social media's culture wars, parenting is hard.

As a gray-haired older man, we did not face the same challenges as you while raising our kids. You are a better parent than you might realize. At least, we think so. Parents, grandparents, and guardians often don't give themselves enough credit for their remarkable job in raising kids to become good humans. If you are like me, you not only want your kids to be good humans, you want to build lifelong faith in your kids. I want to introduce you to some support you can access on the go. I want to provide two apps or websites you can access as resources. Other Christian school leaders have highly recommended these sites.

Parent Cue is designed to help you develop your child's character with expertise from childhood development leaders, educators, and real parents just like you. Build an everyday faith through fun Bible story videos, memory verses, prayers, and conversation prompts. Establish a lasting connection by making the most of the moments you already spend together at morning, meal, drive, and bedtime.

Use Axis no matter where you are on your parenting journey, the Axis community is a place for you. Whether you are facing a tough conversation with your child and don't have the words to begin, or you're getting a jump start on the teenage years ahead, Axis is for you. Join Axis as you parent from elementary to high school and beyond.
