Pastor Ted Cunningham
Ted Cunningham is a pastor in Branson, MO. His story is that he realized that he was a “vanity parent.” He wanted his kids to be popular and successful, but after seeing how other parents promote their kids perfection and achievements on Facebook, he realized that there are trophy parents. Intentionally, he wrote the book, Trophy Child: Saving Parents from Performance, Preparing Children for Something Greater than Themselves. He’s had a little bit of defensive reaction from parents who think the really bad parents are the ones who neglect their children. He says he’s at the other end of the spectrum.
He is passionate about how letting your kids fail helps them learn… and how not being a trophy parent improves your marriage.
Ted’s newest book, Trophy Child: Saving Parents from Performance, Preparing Children for Something Greater Than Themselves is available now.
If your marriage is going great or if you’re struggling, Dr. Randy is here to help you apply the practical principles of Intentional Living to take your marriage to the next level. “Figure out what pleases Christ, and then do it!” (Eph 5:10 MSG) is our core scripture for the Intentional Living Center. By applying these practical principles, you can see how God will strengthen, restore, or even save your marriage.
This week is a special week with some great resources to help you intentionally take your marriage to the next level!
Today on Facebook: “How are you helping your kids NOT feel like they are the ‘center of the universe’?”
