Counting to three... as if. That's simply a sugarcoating for disobedience. [Off the soapbox]
After reading Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp many moons ago this was a great refresher on parenting to the heart of our children. How to draw out the foolishness (in the biblical definition) and replace it with biblical truth. Liked the emphasis on the word of God - knowing it, speaking it and living it in our homes. An easy read in terms of length but challenging. Challenging in that the author places responsibility, rightfully so, on the parents to know their children and seek the answers to their children's discipline issues in the word of God. This is more difficult than following steps A, B & C outlined by the latest child psychologist/family therapist/preacher/counselor whatever. This book encouraged me (kind of kicked me in the pants) in this regard - know the Word, live it & teach it to my children
My friend Emily wrote a great review that introduced me to the book. She also loaned it to me these past couple months (nice friend).
