Publisher's Description

How can we teach our children to obey without arguing?


Overview


Whining and arguing in response to an instruction seem to be accepted as a childhood rite of passage in our current culture. This study will guide parents in techniques of discipline that are grounded in Scripture and challenge parents to use discipline techniques that replace whining and arguing with obedience and respect.



Should children be expected to obey before discussing an instruction? How can a child appeal to a parent with respect and wisdom? What roles, if any, do negotiation and compromise play in discipline? How does effective discipline influence a child s long-term relationships, future employment, and the desire to be submissive and respectful to leadership and authority?
