There are certain tools which an artist needs to create a masterpiece such as paint, brushes, and a canvas. Many of these tools come in a wide array of styles as well. The same is true for parenting. We’ll link you to tools that can help you as you raise your daughter in today’s challenging society. Not everything works for everybody. Nothing comes easy either. There is no easy button for parenting. It takes prayer, exploration, study, evaluation, and more prayer. And you often find that it’s a cycle that needs repeating or fine-tuning as girls move from one stage to another. We’ll help you hunt for the right tools and explore many options; some you’ll like; some you might even disagree with. Remember, as you put together your own toolkit for raising daughters, stay focused on your masterpiece and what works best for her.
