A HUGE part of Parenting on Purpose is about training our kids with excellence. We are their coaches, their mentors, their advisers, their educators and their directors.
Training is about teaching, correcting and modeling the skills and behaviors and character traits that will prepare our kids for a successful adult life.
“Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.” — C. S. Lewis
The foundation of all training starts with character. It doesn’t amount to a hill of beans how smart or skilled our kids are if they’re lazy or they lie or they’re selfish or arrogant or rude.
In this section, we’ve got encouragement and ideas for
- Behavior Modification
- Character Traits
- Honor & Respect
“I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.” –Mark Twain
Whether you choose to choose to partner with a public school or a private school or you choose to homeschool or unschool, you are still the Director of your child’s education.
From the time you teach your toddler that the cow says Moo to the time you teach your high schooler how to run a household, you are the overseer of the entire learning process.
There are few thing that we (Jenni & Jody) feel more strongly about than education. Throughout our blog and podcast you’ll find conversations and resources to inspire and equip you to offer your child the very best education.

“Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” — Proverbs 4:23 (NIV)
We share our space in this galaxy with other people, but that can be the hardest part of living. Part of our training our kids is helping them navigate their own emotions and then helping them understand and connect with other people.
In this corner of the POP Parenting site we’ll talk about:
