Successful Parenting Postscripts


Charles H. Betz
Parents everywhere are asking for help these days. Successful Parenting Postscripts, written by Charles H. Betz, Family Ministries Consultant for the Oregon Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, has brief, authoritative, practical guidelines for busy parents facing the daunting task of rearing children in these current days.

Charles H. Betz is a retired pastor the author of four books in religious education. Though a native of Oregon he received a Bachelors decree in Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary, a Masters of Religious Education. Elder Betz has studied and written extensively in the field of child development and parenting. He has conducted many seminars in Oregon and Washington.

In 1994, Successful Parenting Postscripts was published on a trial basis. They were more as a follow-up for the seminars Pastor Betz had conducted throughout the Oregon Conference. As interest grew, the publication was offered to all churches. Charles and Harriet Betz are grateful to the Oregon Conference Family Life Department for making the publishing of Successful Parenting Postscripts possible. “We believe that providing busy parents with helpful information is a part of the Elijah message for these last days,” states Pastor Betz.

Family Ministries & Sabbath School Ministries are pleased to help parents do less correcting and more connecting with their children - by supplying free of charge - Successful Parenting Postscripts in either a newsletter or bulletin insert format. You can conveniently download the files from this page.
