A Note From Bob -

ParentingOnPurpose Continues to have a Huge Impact “I cannot thank Sheridan House enough for the Parenting On Purpose podcasts. I grew up as a ward of the state of Minnesota. Which means I had absolutely no example or direction for parenting my son. Listening to your podcasts has finally given me direction. Thank you!”

Payless Managers: Alex Bibiana, and Richard

Thank you Payless Shoesource Thanks to Payless and a gift from a generous foundation, over 600 pairs of shoes were given to children at this year’s back-to-school event.

You truly helped Fill the Pack!

Steve from Minnesota

“Finding Parenting On Purpose on the radio not only changed my life, but my home as well. I was a yeller and I didn’t know how to stop. When I listened for the first time I knew you were talking right to me. The next day I went to the website and down loaded every single podcast. Finally my husband and I are on the same page in our parenting approach. I can’t thank you enough.” Sharon from Tarpon Springs, Florida

Thank You to ALL the haircutters, barbers, and volunteers. Sheridan House helped give out over 700 back packs filled with supplies for kids!

For over twenty-five years Sheridan House has been offering direction for parents… Answers for Today’s Family. Over 315,000 people visit the website each year. This is just one more way Sheridan House works to help families and IT WORKS. The parenting principles of God Work.

Thank You to Gilbert the Barber.

Dear Sheridan House, As a child, I had a very tough upbringing growing up in foster care in the state of Minnesota. I did not have relatives, friends or anyone else to serve as my guardian. Not having parents around left a huge void in my life and I didn’t receive the proper guidance and direction to equip me for adulthood and fatherhood. When my son was born three years ago, my abandonment issues I had developed as a child began to surface. This was way too much for my son’s mother to handle, so she left as my actions became very unattractive to her. I cannot thank you enough for putting together the Parenting On Purpose series. It has given me direction and it is a useful tool in helping me with the development of my relationship with my son. This year I turned 36. I started a new tradition on my birthday to take my son on an adventure he has never done before. This year we went paddleboarding. On the way home from the beach, I had an unconditional love experience with my son. Traffic was terrible on the drive and I was grumbling out loud and he heard me from the back seat. He asked “What’s wrong Daddy?” and I told him I was just grumbling about the traffic and things I cannot control. I told him “don’t worry, be happy”. He then said to me, “don’t worry, be daddy”!! Wow, I’m a daddy. He has a purpose in my life and I will work every day to be a man he can look up to. Trust is not my strong suit so finding any kind of mentor has been challenging. I found and it has helped so much. Listening to your podcasts has given me more direction than I have had in a very long time. So again, thank you.

It’s working!
