  1. Great stuff Sam. Finally, someone who uses a common sense approach to a very difficult problem in the home today. Keep up the great work!

  2. This is really great resources. Far too many parents expect "their child" to be the exception to the rule when in reality Satan is actively engaged in our culture and is eager to short-circuit our children at very young ages. Parent's need to be smart…be proactive… and be confident that 1 John 4:4 is true:

    "You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world."
