Publisher's Description

How can we discipline our children with unconditional love?


Overview


Biblical discipline focuses on heart changes, not merely outward behavior changes. It includes consistent training, calm correction, biblical teaching, and clear communication. It also includes punishment, but only in the context of unconditional love, according to Gary Chapman and Ron R. Lee in their article Loving Discipline That Works, written for CHRISTIAN PARENTING TODAY. This means we never withhold love when we discipline, but instead see discipline as part of love, just as God disciplines those he loves.


This study considers: How can we discipline in love? What are the components of loving discipline? Why is discipline an essential part of loving our children? How do we focus on heart changes instead of concentrating only on outward behavior changes? How do we model God s unconditional love and forgiveness?
