The Real Purpose of ParentingĀ is a series of stories and life lessons from the world of a therapist, also known as "the parent coach." Well-meaning parents are at the point of crisis because, despite their best efforts, their children are not growing into the people they want them to be. And there, according to Dr. Philip Dembo, lies the problem.

InĀ The Real Purpose of Parenting, even the best parents are capable of smothering their children and inhibiting growth in their lives. This happens because who the child really is and what the child truly needs are often overlooked or ignored in favor of the parents' agenda. This often leads to numerous problems within the family.

As a solution, Dr. Dembo offers simple family "turn around" strategies that reframe the real purpose of parenting and gives each family and child their own salvation.
