AJ and I were recently given the opportunity to review a new program for families with kids ages 10 to 18 called Family Toolbox. The Family Toolbox was created by Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN from the National Center for Biblical Parenting. It is meant for kids and parents to work together and learn 16 life principles.
What is the Family Toolbox exactly?
It is a video based program that includes 8 different videos that are each 2 to 3 minutes long. The videos show a realistic real life situation between parents and teens. To go along with the videos there is a workbook designed for both the teens and the parents to complete. In each video two different life success principles are addressed. Some of the life success principles include; avoiding arguing, developing internal motivation, accepting no as an answer, viewing the family as a team, and so many other useful skills. The workbook includes thought provoking questions about the video along with Bible verses that go along with the topics being discussed. There is also a second set of videos that are each about 10 minutes long. They are designed to be watched by the parents. These videos go along with the short videos and include great parenting advice and practical solutions.
