When it comes to correcting your kids, you may be at a loss.  You might be losing battles left and right, and losing your cool in the process.

Help is on the way!

I’m very happy to introduce you to authors Jim and Lynne Jackson.  As young parents, they were dissatisfied with the parenting resources available.  They had three highly sensitive kids with allergies galore who were extremely active.  Professionally, Jim was working with high risk teens and Lynne worked as an occupational therapist working with young kids.

That led them to begin Connected Families in 2002.  Their latest book Discipline That Connects With Your Child’s Heart will help you to raise respectful, responsible, and faith-filled kids.  You’ll learn what to do – and what not to do – when disciplining your kids.  The book will teach you these four powerful principles for discipline that shape both behavior and your kids’ hearts:


Parents start by strengthening their own spiritual and relational foundation. A solid foundation brings God’s love into everyday life, empowering parents to enjoy and connect well with their children. This connection creates receptivity when parents thoughtfully coach kids in the values and skills that support God’s purposes for them. All this proactive effort greatly reduces children’s tendency to misbehave, but when that does happen, the correct principle focuses on learning a wiser response (the underlying meaning of discipline is disciple).
