What is your goal as a parent? Author Brian Housman knows parents, like coaches, want to win at the end of the day, but what does that look like? For some parents it’s obedience, but Housman encourages parents to shoot for a bigger goal—to see their children’s hearts transformed into Christlikeness. Brian Housman explains that parents need to look past their child’s behavior and into their child’s heart. Housman shares what he’s done at the Housman home to address such issues as lying and media usage, and he shares what he did when realized his teen son had been viewing pornography.
