We can turn to God for the ultimate parenting advice. In an age of thousands of books and numerous constantly-changing theories on parenting, it's comforting to know that the Bible teaches how to bring up children who know his Word and are obedient, respectful, loving, happy and creative.
This Christian parenting book gives Bible-based advice for married couples and single parents. In these pages, Doug Britton gives Christians and others practical, biblical guidelines on topics ranging from praising to spanking ... without child abuse.
Written for parents of children from one to twelve years of age, many of the principles in this book also apply to parents of teenagers.
In these pages, you will discover how to:
> Communicate with respect and love. Learn communication tools that work!
> Center your home in the Lord. See how to introduce your child to Jesus.
> Take a position of authority. Read how to chastise or discipline, yet be friendly.
> Spank (use corporal punishment) wisely. Learn ten steps in spanking and reconciliation.
> Conduct family meetings. See how to get your children involved in discussions.
> Cultivate Christian character development. Help children grow in the fruit of the Spirit.
> Encourage responsible behavior. Develop honesty, responsibility and a work ethic.
> Develop your child's talents and intellect. Get practical advice for school-age children.
> Help your children become close friends. Discover how to overcome sibling rivalry.
> Prepare your children for marriage and sex. Help them reject our culture's lies.
This book is designed for individual or group study. It is ideal for a six-week or twelve-week small group or classroom study.
Each chapter is interactive, with personal application questions scattered throughout to help you put its biblical advice into practice. The book is comprehensive and detailed, yet easy to use and practical.
