Every parent longs for peace.

Peace in the home
Peace between family members
Peace of mind
Peace of knowing we?re doing what God has called us to do
But kids argue with each other.

They disobey.

They complain.

And we?re often left not knowing what to do to gain the peace we long for.

Parenting shouldn?t be this confusing and frustrating.

The If-Then Chart, designed by real parents with real kids, has been helping parents bring peace to their homes for over 26 years!

God has given us all we need to confidently train our children ? in His Word ? and this simple tool helps bring that Word to bear on our everyday parenting challenges.

Here's how it works:
You choose consequences for each of the 10 common childhood sins and fill in the right-hand column of your chart.
When your child misbehaves, look at the chart and discuss:

What did he just do?
What does God say about what he did?
What has Jesus already done about what he did? (Did you know every discipline session is an opportunity to remind your child of the Gospel?)
What have you agreed will happen when he does this?
You will know what to do, and your children will know what to expect. It?s a simple tool that helps you be the kind of parent you want to be.

Prompt, consistent discipline restores fellowship so you spend less time being frustrated or confused, and more time enjoying your children.

When your children misbehave (which won't happen as often!), you'll be prepared to teach them about God's standards and point them to the Gospel.
