Changing Your Approach To Discipline Is Easier Than You Think

Kids grow up really fast. The time you have with them is precious. You don't want to waste one more minute of it stuck in bad cycles of power struggles, anger, and disrespect. Or constantly feeling like you're nagging, arguing, and punishing. None of that makes for good memory-making moments. There is a better way.

Jim and Lynne Jackson, founders of Connected Families and co-authors of How to Grow a Connected Family and Discipline That Connects With Your Child’s Heart have over fifty years combined professional experience working with children, teens, and families. In 1990, after serving as ministry staff in two large churches and bearing two intense and lively kids, Jim and Lynne became very intentional about parenting, and then about helping other parents. Lynne became a pediatric Occupational Therapist. Jim became a director of a ministry to high-risk teens and their families. They added a third child, completing their AAA hat-trick (that is, adding a third child with ADHD, Asthma, and Allergies. Quite an intense bunch!). As Jim and Lynne toughed out those early years, they started developing numerous resources to inspire and equip parents for grace and truth in their relationships at home.  After serving hundreds of parents and thousands of kids it became clear more was needed. In 2002 Jim and Lynne founded Connected Families to partner with churches to build strong families. Their presentations bring real life to audiences through impromptu role-plays, transparent stories of their own successes and failures, and stories of the experiences of hundreds of parents they have coached over the years. They leave parents laughing, crying, encouraged and equipped to uniquely bring God’s grace to life in their homes right away! Whether in the trenches with parents as mentors, on the stage as presenters, or in planning meetings with staff, Jim and Lynne bring a wealth of experience, overflowing passion, and years of wisdom to their service.

About Jim & Lynne

As parents, we know the struggles of disciplining well. It can be frustrating to feel like you don’t have the answers and you don’t know where to find them. Since the early 1990’s we've helped thousands of parents gain the confidence and skills they need to make wise parenting decisions when it comes to discipline.

This is hands down the best book I've read on parenting. Very eye opening. They offer great insight into the behavior of a child, the reasons behind it and how we can bring God's grace into the situation, starting with us. 

I would also recommend checking out their Discipline That Connects online course, which helps to bring all the strategies and teachings in the book come to life. The Jacksons do a really good job of presenting their content in a non-condemning, encouraging yet convicting way. Their teaching has drastically changed my outlook on parenting and how we raise our kids.

Our home is not perfect but I now feel at peace knowing there is a solution to guiding our family to be more Christ-like. I can't recommend this enough.
