Publisher's Description

Adding honor as a factor in raising kids …and parent-child relationships.

Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller offer a thorough program for establishing honor as a basis of family life — not just children honoring parents, but parents respecting children and children honoring each other. Even if honor seems a long way off in your household, you will find practical suggestions here to bring that goal a little closer — suggestions for kids of all ages. Honor is the biblical value that will bring about good behavior. It’s more than just changing what kids do; it’s changing the deeper issues of the heart that triggered the behavior.

The father of five children, Turansky loves to bring practical solutions to everyday problems. Miller, the mother of two, is a pediatric nurse and home-schooling mom.

    This was a perfect book for our family. We are starting to teach honor in our family and are already seeing a difference. I love the questions at the end of each chapter that point you to scripture. I also love the family times given at the back to help you get started practicing honor. If you're looking for more that missing ingredient in your household, this book is for you.

    This book is a life saver! So many great lessons are being learned in my house because of this book. I love that it focus' on honor. Such a great message. It also adresses the fact that you can't expect your kids to learn honor until you do, but not in the way of saying that if your kids are messing up it's all your fault. I was amazed at all the lessons I have been learning not only about parenting but also marriage, being a daughter, being a friend, and so much more. I love the focus of serventhood.

    I also love that this books refers constantly to the Bible and has you looking up scripture and answering questions.

    If you have a VERY strong willed child, this is the book for you. It helps you change yourself first, which in turn will help change your child.

    We have raised 5 children, and know that Honor is absolutely necessary to make a family function in a Godly fashion. I like this book so much that now I give it as a gift at Baby Showers.

    Nothing in it is new to us. It is a matter of applying the principles within.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Scott Turansky
Submitted: September 29, 2004

    Tell us a little about yourself.  As a father of five children, I love family life. Although our kids are grown now, we're enjoying the fun of grandparenting. We founded the National Center for Biblical Parenting to provide family-strengthening resources for churches and parents. You may visit our web site at www.biblicalparenting.org

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I'm very grateful for my parents who taught me what honor was in their relationship with each other and with us as kids. When my wife and I got married we wanted to have honor in our home and our five kids provided many opportunities to test out the ideas.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  The concept of honor has helped me see the difference between families that are mediocre and those that are successful. We wrote this book after doing a four-year study on honor in the Bible and in life and were excited to write it all down. We've applied honor to sibling conflict, teenagers, parental discipline, and just teaching kids how to be successful in life. We believe that God has hidden success principles within honor. That's why he commanded that honor be learned in family life.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I'm very grateful for my parents who taught me what honor was in their relationship with each other and with us as kids. When my wife and I got married we wanted to have honor in our home and our five kids provided many opportunities to test out the ideas.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  We have four goals when approaching parenting problems. Be bibilcal, practical, focus on the heart, and look for adult solutions to children's problems. These goals help us stay on track in providing parents with the most effective parenting solutions. We're always on the lookout for more parenting secrets. We'd love to hear from you.
