Parenting With A Purpose Parenting is not about ownership; it is about stewardship, and stewardship is about doing a job for God. Parenting is not about being glorified; it is about glorifying God. Parenting is not about lifting up children or being lifted up by children; it is about lifting up Christ by, "Bringing children up in the training and instruction of the Lord." When the objective of parenting is to glorify God, God gets the glory and parents get the joy. And there is no joy like the joy that a parent experiences when his child grows like Jesus grew, "In wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men." Walter E. McDonald currently teaches a young adult Sunday school class for parents with children in elementary school and middle school. He was ordained a deacon in 1978, and he has been teaching Sunday school since 1965. He has taught children, youth, high school students, college students; young married couples, single adults, and senior adults. He has also worked with youth mission groups such as Royal Ambassadors and Shepherd Boys. His approach to teaching, no matter what age group he teaches, has always been that of the Apostle Paul written in 1 Corinthians 2:2, "For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified." (KJV)

Fifty years ago, students who were parents were a rarity in college classrooms, but by the beginning of the twenty-first century, over a quarter of all undergraduate students were parents. In Back in School, A. Fiona Pearson explores how these student parents navigate cultural norms and institutional resources, forging pathways as they journey to become better parents and successful students. Back in School examines how policy makers, professors, college administrators, counselors, and social workers provide or deny access to child care, tutoring, financial aid, or other campus- or community-based resources. Pearson further explores how social norms and governmental and organizational policies influence access to these resources and student parents’ experiences on campus and at home.

All across the country, a growing number of children are dropping out of organized sports—not because they don’t like to play, but because the system they play in is failing them. Written by one of this country’s leading advocates of youth sports, Why Johnny Hates Sports explains why many of the original goals of youth leagues have been affected by today’s win-at-all-costs attitude. It then documents the negative physical and psychological impact that parents, coaches, and administrators can have on children, while providing effective solutions to each of the problems covered. Why Johnny Hates Sports is both an exposé of abuses and a call to arms. It clearly illustrates a serious problem that has plagued youth sports for too long. Most important, it provides practical answers that can alter this destructive course.
