Messiah College alumni and parents of students find themselves in the midst of the high-intensity parenting years, facing their children’s rapid development and the new questions and situations that emerge as a result.

With hope, humility, and even humor, Messiah College educator experts offer tips and lessons—many based on research and tested in the laboratory of their own families— on the process of parenting and how to maximize this time with your children.
