Publisher's Description

Author of Grace-Based Parenting and the best-selling Little House on the Freeway, Dr. Tim Kimmel helps Christian parents avoid the potential problems their well-meaning parenting styles could create.  This book offers a new way to look at the "ideal" Christian home and shows why "cocoon-style" Christian homes don't always work.

Many parents have "done it all" when it comes to the checklist of good Christian parenting, only to see their son or daughter step away from their belief system and embrace other lifestyle choices.

Dr. Kimmel helps to increase the chances that your children will develop a vibrant faith early in life and stick with it on into adulthood. It will also provide help and hope for those already dealing with a rebellious teen and teach them how to lead the child back into a walk of faith.


In Why Christian Kids Rebel, Tim Kimmel offers varying reasons why children, in general, rebel. Some of the issues and reasoning given emphasize parenting styles, and in the process illuminate a psychological view into the impact of Christianity on these rebellious children. For example, are we as parents living up to the standards of the Christian beliefs that we are teaching? In other words, do we practice what we preach?
Next, the author asserts that the type of Christianity, of which there are many flavors, can also influence a rebellious child. It is evidenced that the doctrines we choose and the beliefs thereof can be contributors to the overall problem or crisis that our children find themselves dealing with.
The author utilizes stories such as the familiar prodigal son, with a unique insight into the story, and secular movies such as the "Rocky" series, to help us visualize the struggles our children face, our styles of parenting, and Christian belief systems we employ. One axiom provided is the decision process along with our worldview versus God's system. It explores the basis of true faith and not just following tradition. It expands on personal relationships and not just belief or habit.
In essence, Kimmel writes the unvarnished truth about the biblical laws of harvest, and how they apply to childrearing and educating children to prepare the for the world--not shield them from it. Where is there a greater foundation for child raising than the Bible? – Dr. Ley Rose, Christian Book Previews.com
