Parenting by the Book: Biblical Wisdom for Raising Your Child
With a down-to-earth, warm, and humorous style, one of America’s top family psychologists sets forth a virtually stress-free, biblically-based system of childrearing that encourages family growth in harmony with God’s Word. Picture respectful, responsible, obedient children who entertain themselves without television or video games, do their own homework, and have impeccable manners. A pie-in-the-sky fantasy? Not so, says family psychologist and bestselling author John Rosemond. In the 1960s, American parents stopped listening to their elders when it came to child rearing and began listening instead to professional experts. Since then, raising children has become fraught with anxiety, stress, and frustration. The solution, says John, lies in raising children according to biblical principles, the same principles that guided parents successfully for hundreds of years. They worked then, and they still work now In this book you ll find practical, Bible-based advice that will help you be the parent you want to be, with children who will be, as the Bible promises, a delight to your soul (Prov. 29:17).
