How can you eat better, sleep better, exercise better, work better, play better, spend better, save better, serve better, worship better, and pray better? Those are very good questions to ask at the beginning of a new year.


But how can you improve your relationship with your kids this year?


Now that’s a question to put at the top of the list.


In this special New Year’s episode, Catherine specifically talks about how we can improve our relationships with our kids.


CPCW spends a lot of time counteracting the onslaught of secular ideology and theology that is coming against our children in an attempt to subvert their faith, and that is critically important work for us to do. But we can’t really help our kids with those ideas if we don’t have a solid relationship with them to start with.

So this episode is all about improving our relationship with our kids. Catherine offers 12 ways that you could do that—including the question every parent needs to ask their child—to provide a great way to start off the new year in our families.
