How do raise an employable child? A marriageable child? A child equipped for the future? They're growing up faster than you'd ever imagined. Before you know it, high school will be behind them. Will your children be ready for the complex choices and responsibilities that aswait them as adults? Parenting authority Dr. Bob Barnes believes the time to prepare children for successful public, personal, and private lives is now, while they're at home. How? By giving them a 'learner's permit': opportunities to develop skills, experience, and character that will help them become good decision makers, good marriage partners, good communicators, employees, and money-managers-as well as godly individuals whose Christian faith runs deep.
