Tackling the Challenges of Parenting for Today's Family

New Guide Provides Methods and Solutions from the Book of Proverbs for Raising Kids

NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla., Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- With the recent national focus on big families and births of multiples, it is easy to see parenting can sometimes become overwhelming in the modern family. In "Words from the Wise, Parenting with Proverbs" (published by iUniverse), author Deana Cerniglia presents tips and straightforward, Bible-based information for making this job easier and improving parenting skills for all families.

"Words from the Wise" shows readers how to use the timeless words of wisdom from the Book of Proverbs to tackle tricky parenting tasks, maintain sanity and strengthen a nurturing relationship with the Father. Cerniglia offers solid guidance, tips and strategies to conquer even the most difficult challenges of parenting. She explains that in order to be a good parent, readers must analyze themselves to avoid passing down any hurts or dysfunctional behaviors learned from their own childhood.

Based on the personal experiences of a mother with three children, this guide uses humor, stories and a friend-to-friend approach that acknowledges all parents make mistakes. "Words from the Wise" demonstrates how readers can apply a traditional value system to today's dilemmas, showing that God's way is the best way. Cerniglia writes:

        Raising children is harder and we've gotten further and further away
        from how we and generations before us were raised. We don't need the
        "experts" to tell us how to raise our children, we need our
        grandmothers. Of course, some of the old ways would never "fly". My
        Nanna (my Mother's mom) had seven children, if one of them acted up
        and she couldn't get to them, she'd just take her shoe off and hurl
        it across the room, rarely missing her target. Okay, maybe this is a
        bad example. We are more educated now and aware of the child-psyche,
        we know better than to throw things at our children. But
        unfortunately, we really are getting away from a lot of the wise,
        traditional, no non-sense, yes, Biblical way of raising our children.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
