NATIONAL CENTER FOR BIBLICAL PARENTING
NCBP is on a mission to help parents understand how to implement a heart-based approach to parenting. It has helped the church develop an environment that supports them. Parents today often gravitate toward a behavior modification approach to parenting...It’s just incomplete. God gave each person a heart and if you use a heart-based approach with kids then you have a whole new bucket of parenting resources. We highly recommend you visit this site and check out their Parent Division, Church Division and Biblical Parenting University.
