Putting Parenting to Bed - Study Guide
Do we really need more parenting advice? After all, if millions have successfully raised children for centuries without any books or courses, how hard can it be?
'Advice overload' from endless experts has actually undermined the confidence of today's parents. The Putting Parenting to Bed Course can be three or six sessions and gives parents some simple, common-sense basics for raising children with confidence, based on the age-old, tried & tested wisdom of the Bible. It also gives parents an opportunity to think through the bigger questions of life that can lead to a real opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Perfect to use as an outreach course in your community or toddler groups, as well as with parents in your church.
Course leaders can choose to deliver the main talks themselves, or use the Putting Parenting to Bed DVD presented by Ann Benton.

Very good(Review written for 'Putting Parenting to Bed - Leader's Guide')
We used this book as research for a parenting seminar, as a result one of the ladies has started a parenting class for her neighbors who are not involved in church, using the 'putting parenting to bed' resource and has been encouraged.
This parenting course is thought provoking, realistic and practical. It is flexible enough for you to tailor to your group in terms of presentation style and the time you have available. We only had 30-40 mins each week with our Toddler Group mums and while more time would obviously be great, those minutes were still really worthwhile.
Couldnt endorse the PPtB stuff strongly enough!
We ran this course at our church and it went really, really well. About 70 people...more than half non-Christian and 3-4 couples signed up for Christianity Explored.
A very valuable group teaching resource
We followed the course very much as set out in the Leaders Guide but adding some examples from personal experience. It was well received by the Group of 12 parents who immediately identified with the studies and have reported subsequently how they have put the strategies and understanding to practical use with their own children. It will now form the basis for regular annual parenting training in the life of the Church. It is non-threatening to folk who are not regular churchgoers and offers Gospel opporunities to engage with folk and invite them into other Church activities. A much-needed and well-crafted programme for all parents.
Excellent, Biblical focused parenting course
We've just run this course for the first time and were impressed with how its overtly Christian 'common-sense' approach was linked together with some very practical application. This was well received and has provoked some extremely positive feedback. And it only runs for 3 weeks...
