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. That's why we want to show that ordinary people already have within their grasp all that they need to bring up their children well. We want parents to be liberated to enjoy their children and the adventure of raising them.
In just three sessions (or six shorter sessions), this course is built on three common-sense principles to guide your relationship with your child.
Unusually, it's based not on fads and fashions, but on the timeless wisdom of the Bible - a remarkable book, whose advice countless people throughout history and across the world have found to be sound, true and helpful. Its age-old, tried-and-tested wisdom will help you bring up your child with confidence.
Putting Parenting to Bed is written by Ann Benton, Tim Thornborough and Anne Woodcock and has been developed out of parenting seminars presented in a number of schools and churches around the UK.

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...
