A Gift for You! A Pocket Parenting Guide

If you have ever wanted a parenting “cheat sheet” to keep with you, this post is for you. Here you will find a free Pocket Parenting printable with tips and encouragement to help you both keep your cool and your focus on Christ. Merry Christmas!

This Christmas, I would like to offer all CfP readers a gift – a small token to say thank you. Thank you for reading and thank you for caring enough about your role as a Christian parent to seek out solutions, insights and information that will help you lead your children in the ways of the Lord. My prayer is that God uses what you read here to minister to you and your family for His glory.

So as a thank you, I have a present for you: A Pocket Parenting Guide. You can print this double-sided post-card sized “cheat sheet” to keep in your purse or bag. If you are so inclined, you can laminate it for longevity sake. Two cards will come from one 8×11 sheet, so feel free to share with a friend or relative

On the front of the card, you will find a compilation of the tenets to my approach to Christian parenting. It is not an all-inclusive list (that would require a much larger piece of paper!), but it contains both reactive and proactive strategies. The list on the left is largely aimed at assisting you when you are faced with a difficult situation. The list on the right contains things that you can do daily that will keep God at the center of your family life and your interactions with your children. The back has some encouraging Bible verses to help center you in times of difficulty. Spaces are intentionally left open for you to add verses that are important to you.

  • Laura, I don’t think there is really a cheat sheet for parents. Every child is unique and so is the task at hand for each parent. I am impressed by the post and the effort you have put in to encourage parents with these unique tips. When parents don’t know what to do, they can definitely try these options.
