The best book out there on biblical child-rearing. It is an excellent companion to "Shepherding a Child's Heart" because of it's practical application of the theology in Ted Tripp's work. It should be compulsory reading for every Christian parent.
This is a favorite. It is where my husband and I found one of our favorite parenting quotes. "Right away, all the way and with a happy heart". We have thought of stenciling those words on our children's wall!!It is a great book, an easy read and one that I have gone back and purchased for friends.
I read this book after reading "Shepherding a Child's Heart" by Ted Tripp, and I found Plowman's book to be a lot easier (as a mother of toddlers) to use. Not only is it a quicker read than Tripp's book, it is also very easy to refer back to when you're having a difficult day with your little ones. I find myself reading parts of it once a week to keep the scripture firm in my mind as I'm striving to reach my boy's hearts instead of just their behavior. I strongly recommend this book to ALL moms!
I bought this on the recommendation of the parenting ministry at my church, and was not disappointed. The teaching is sound and very clear, not only explaining why to discipline, but really giving practical instruction, so that you can see what it looks like! Not at all, setting herself up on a guru-pedestal, Ginger Plowman shares what she has learned as she struggles with the same behavior in her children that is common to the breed! I would highly recommend it.
