|4 out of 5 stars|
Besides its conciseness, I also liked how the advice is relevant for any age group, from toddlers to teens. Most chapters present a basic principle, like firmness instead of harshness, and then elaborate on how to use the principle in specific situations. I would recommend it for parents who want to raise responsible, Godly children.
I did not appreciate how the authors pull Bible verses out of context to support their points. The book doesn’t take time to explain to understand the verses outside of a narrow focus on parenting. New Christians may especially have difficulty understanding what they read in the Bible after reading this book because the Bible isn’t a collection of verses about parenting and other topics.
Even though I don't like the authors' use of Scripture, I would still recommend this book because it teaches Biblical thinking about parenting in an easy-to-read format.
I received this book from the publisher for the purposes of review. The opinions expressed are my own.
