Counselor Julie Lowe explains that, because every child is unique, the use of parenting formulas won't deliver the results that moms and dads are seeking.

Many parents rely too much on parenting techniques guaranteeing “good children.” But these parents run the risk of not really knowing their children individually: their needs, strengths, weaknesses and struggles. Julie Lowe encourages parents to prayerfully consider what loving their children looks like today – using godly wisdom instead of formulas to guide their children through different seasons of life.

Focus on the Family Vision

To cooperate with the Holy Spirit in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible by nurturing and defending the God-ordained institution of the family and promoting biblical truths worldwide.

Ultimately, we believe that the purpose of life is to know and glorify God through an authentic relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ. This purpose is lived out first within our own families then extended, in love, to an increasingly broken world that desperately needs Him.Through our radio broadcasts, websites, simulcasts, conferences, interactive forums, magazines, books, counseling and much more, Focus on the Family equips parents, children and spouses to thrive in an ever-changing, ever-more-complicated world.
