Publisher's Description

With advice on parenting coming from several angles, what do you listen to and what do you ignore? Develop your own biblical philosophy of parenting and use it to filter the many ideas that come your way.

In this book you’ll learn how to:

Identify character qualities to address problems

Build internal motivation

Transfer responsibility for change to the child

Teach kids to be solvers instead of whiners

Use creativity to teach your kids spiritual truths

Avoid the “boxing ring”

Envision a positive future

And much more!

With these strategies you’ll be able to move from behavior modification to a heart-based approach to parenting. Instead of relying on rewards, incentives, threats, and punishment, you’ll learn how to identify heart lessons to teach your child and implement them in practical ways.

The Christian Parenting Handbook by Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, founders of the National Center for Biblical Parenting, compiles fifty parenting principles that use heart-based strategies to teach you how to face daily challenges. When parents focus on the heart, kids learn to ask different questions about life. Instead of asking, “What’s in it for me?” they learn to ask, “What’s the right thing to do?” You’ll soon see how a heart-based approach to parenting looks deeper and brings about greater, lasting change.

The daily interaction you have with your children can impact them for the rest of their lives. With these fifty heart-based strategies, you’ll develop your own biblical philosophy of parenting and gain perspective, greater motivation, and confidence that you’re moving in the right direction. As you envision a positive future for your children, they’ll experience hope and direction and you will too. Start applying these principles today!

    Overall, I felt this book was a little nugget of great ideas. Each little idea is just a few pages, which helped in reading it. If you just wanted to find one little nugget, you read a few pages. I was impressed at the all-reaching topics the author came up with. I found myself thinking, "yes, I need to try that!" with many of the suggestions.

    One downfall was some of the concepts weren't developed quite enough to really find some answers. For example, one idea was to use discipline over anger, but there wasn't as many hands-on or concrete ideas as I would have liked to implement the concept.

    I loved the idea that you need to change your child's "heart" as you parent. Many of the problems your child gets tangled in, or you find as a parent, if you work on changing the inner core of your child, you will find more success. This is definitely a book I would go back over and read again, especially certain concepts. It lends itself to reading slowly so you can implement different ideas. The authors also specifically want you to read the book and take notes of what you can do in your own parenting strategies. Good read.

    This is the parenting book I have been waiting for. Every parent should read this. There are not only telling you what to do but also examples how to do it which makes so much sense esp. to new parents. Thanks so much for the team that wrote this book.

    The Christian Parenting Handbook offers more than a list of 50 dos and don'ts for parenting; it offers a philosophy of parenting that goes beyond the outward actions of a child and gets to the "heart" of the matter.

    "Heart-based" parenting is a Biblical philosophy of parenting. The authors, Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, refer to it as "a way of thinking, a framework of ideas and theories." It covers a wide selection of parenting topics including discipline, instilling godly character, working together as parents, learning the uniqueness of each child, and others.

    As an example of "heart-based" parenting in addressing discipline techniques, the authors distinguish between the well-known "time out" method and what they call "taking a break". They point out two main differences. In "taking a break", the child knows the first objective is a change of heart and then they are also included on the decision of how much time they may need to calm down and allow this change to take place. This slight twist changes the role of the parent from police enforcer to the loving parent waiting for reunification. This picture brings to mind the image of God the Father welcoming back the prodigal son.

    Throughout each topic though, this Christian parenting handbook also instructs us to keep the main thing, the main thing - pointing our kids to a relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ and then helping them abide in Him!

    Written in short two to three page segments, this book could double as a devotional. Scriptures are included throughout as each area is discussed, and the topics could lead to specific areas of praying for our children.

    It also is an excellent reference tool to quickly get counsel on certain areas that may be occurring in the lives of our children and family. The index in the back includes both Scripture references along with a topical reference list.

    I would recommend this book to parents of children of any age as well as those that work with children in other areas such as school or church settings. Not only will you find sound practical suggestions, but also Biblically-based answers to fifty different parenting questions.

    This is a fabulous book for any Christian parent that seeks to be intentional in passing faith. I love the fact that you don't have to read the entire book from beginning to end-as that is often overwhelming for parents that don't have the time. It is written is such a way that a parent can go directly to a particular issue or topic and get very practical and biblical teaching/training when they need it most. Would definitely recommend this resource to other parents.
