Parenting Resources

If you’re looking for a parenting resource that we’ve mentioned in a Friday Introduction, you’ll find it here.

Motherhood on a Dime

This week, I ran across a fantastic way to help me pray for my kids. Head over to Motherhood On A Dime and check out the 30-Day Challenge: 31 Ways to Pray for Your Kids. The printable calendar has a short prayer to pray for your kids for each day of September. This is a great way to pray things for your kids that you might not otherwise think about. Each day covers a godly character quality. For more info, read the entire Friday Introductions post.

Focus on the Family

Check out the list of age-appropriate chores at Focus on the Family. This list is a great starting point if you’re trying to figure out what chores your kids are capable of doing. For more info, read the entire Friday Introductions post.

Lisa Whelchel’s Parent Page

One of my favorite books on discipline is Creative Correction by Lisa Whelchel. This is a great place to turn when you’re out of ideas for how to discipline your kids. She has some very creative methods for disciplining our kids. Not everything in this book will be right for every family, but there’s probably something in there that will work with every kid. Be sure to also check out the parents page on her website, which is filled with parenting resources. For more info, read the entire Friday Introductions post.

Mom’s Toolbox

At Mom’s Toolbox, you’ll find a site loaded with insightful devotions, great tips for being a better mom and even some yummy recipes. Amy does a great job of keeping you encouraged and giving you practical ideas that you can implement in your own home. For more info, read the entire Friday Introductions post.

Free Chore Charts

There are lots of chore chart resources available, but I like the variety of printable charts available at Free Chore Charts. For more info, read the entire Friday Introductions post.

Accountable Kids

If you’re looking for a system that’s already set up and all you have to do is implement it, check out Accountable Kids. This is more than a chore system. It uses chores and privileges to create an accountability system for your kids. I have a friend who uses this system and loves it. For more info, read the entire Friday Introductions post.

Goal Worksheet

Sometimes making plans and setting goals can seem overwhelming. Where do you start? If you need some help getting started, check out the goal brainstorming questions over at Motherhood on a Dime. This is a great resource for getting started on figuring out your goals for the year. For more info, read the entire Friday Introductions post.

Orange Parents

I want to introduce you to a fantastic website that teaches and encourages parents in becoming partners with their churches. Check out Orange Parents, a website put together by the people behind the Orange movement. They describe being “orange” like this:

“Orange is what you get when you combine two primary colors—red and yellow.
 If you paint only with red, you will get what only red can do. If you paint only with yellow, you will get what only yellow can do. But when you paint with red and yellow, you’ll get new possibilities, fresh solutions, vibrant outcomes.”
