How to Handle Losing Your Place in Your Child's Life – Mike Berry

Author Mike Berry has tools to help you figure out how to handle losing your place in your child’s life.

Starting out, you as a parent are number one in your child’s life. But as he or she gets older, friends, teachers, mentors, pastors and even other family members may start to crowd you out as the number one influence in their life.

So what’s a parent to do?

Mike says you can take heart. No need to become totally hands off or, on the opposite end, clamp down tightly with more restrictive rules. He gives practical advice on how to handle this time of change and growth for you and your child.

Good parents aren’t perfect. There’s no formula to follow, but there are ways you can grow every day. Focus on the Family’s 7 Traits of Effective Parenting Assessment gives parents an honest look at their unique strengths, plus some areas that could use a little help.
