POP Parenting

POP Parenting is our new catch phrase. It stands for Parenting on Purpose, and it covers the three basic jobs of every parent — loving, training and then releasing our kids.

Just about everything that we talk about here on the blog and on our weekly radio show and in the various articles and we write and the talks we give, is covered in these three words: Loving, Training, Releasing.

We are on mission to empower and equip parenting on purpose with an emphasis on strong family relationships (loving), raising teachable kids (training), and pointing kids toward their passion and purpose (releasing).

Loving

When it comes to parenting, everything is built on relationship. The family is a child’s first experience with intimate connections and will determine a lot about how they view God and other people later in life. We’ve got to make this our top priority.

POP Parenting resources include tools for developing:

  • Healthy  communication

  • Emotional intelligence

  • Strong parent-child relationships

  • Strong sibling relationships

  • Family culture

Training

Our ultimate goal is not to produce outwardly obediently kids who may or not be rebellious on the inside. Our goal is to train our kids at a heart level so that ultimately, we raise teachable individuals who want to make right choices and strive for excellence.

POP Parenting resources include tools for:

  • Behavior management

  • Character training

  • Conflict stewardship

  • Establishing routines

  • Teaching kids organization skills

  • Teaching time management skills

  • Instilling a sense of excellence

  • Spiritual training

  • Grooming leadership skills

  • Developing creativity

  • Cultivating entrepreneurship

  • Coaching kids through friendships

  • Making education choices

  • Homeschooling and Unschooling

  • Teaching Christian worldview

Releasing

One of our greatest roles as parents is to help our kids find their own lane and run in it with excellence. It’s our job to parent with the end result in mind and prepare our kids for a powerful adulthood.

POP Parenting resources include tools for helping kids:

  • Find their passion

  • Discover their calling

  • Gain critical life skills

  • Adopt a debt free mindset

  • Develop mature interpersonal skills

  • Find their role in the church

  • Cultivate a sense of civic responsibility

  • Understand our government and economy and their role in it

  • Prepare for their future role as a spouse and parent
