Have you ever made a rule in your house and realized that it wasn’t a good rule? Don’t worry, pretty much all parents have done this.
Watch as Joe shares a story when he created a set of rules simple enough for everyone to understand.
As parents, we say a lot to our children, but we need to make sure that we are watching our words.
What we say to and about them carries a lot of weight with them whether they admit it or not. Listen in to this classic episode of Fighting for Families radio with Joe as he shares on the importance of what we say.
When are you going to be responsible? Have you ever asked your kids this — or at least thought it in your head?
A mom’s to-do list can feel like a never-ending list [the same thing applies to parents in general.] Listen in to this classic episode of Fighting for Families radio as Joe and his wife, Denise had a conversation about raising responsible children.
Our kids need encouragement. If they don’t get encouragement for the right things, they’ll seek encouragement for the wrong things.
Do you want to excel at the plan God has for you? The answer is simple.
Avoid talking about stupid things, listening to stupid things, and thinking about stupid things. What defines stupid you ask? In, Joe talks about that very thing.
Have you ever wondered when parenting stops?
The culture would tell us that parenting stops when your child becomes an adult. But the truth is that parenting continues forever. Your children will need you to be a parent when they are 50 and you are 70. Many parents are facing a transition with their children as graduation and the summer approaches.

When it comes to families, there’s a scripture in the Bible that says, “But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever” (1 Timothy 5:8 NKJV).
A lady called into our live radio program one day and said, “Mr. McGee, we love your program. We have all of your teachings on parenting and marriage. They are so good. They have helped us as parents and have saved our family. But I’d like to ask a question: what are the three most important things you did as a parent that helped your children?”
I said, “Well, the greatest thing I think we ever taught our kids was about sin.”
“Motherhood is…the biggest on-the-job training program in existence today.”
As a parent, sometimes it can feel like you are just out there on the edge with no way to know if you’re doing things right. But God has given us a manual for parenting in His Word!
