A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
This book was highly recommended years ago, but I thought it'd be like the rest of parenting books so I dismissed it. Well I did finally cave in and am so glad I did, it's has challenged much of what I once held to as right and wrong in parenting. It's also been so encouraging, actually freeing me to parent using Kingdom standards not world standards. I'm still learning but thankful for this awesome tool!
As a family with six kids from teenagers to a 8 year old, we have struggled for many years in the area of raising Godly children. Trying what our parents did and failing miserably. Reading and trying many things... This book freed us from of that and helped us make a paradigm shift about God's idea of raising your kids. We are delighted to share this with all and even bought all in store copies to give to friends. A MUST!!!!
This is the greatest book to ever find its way into my home. I finally figured out the reasons for all the struggle in my journey as a parent. This wonderful book has made me look at my children and my Lord in a whole new light, and the outlook is brighter now. I can finally stop fighting to be the parent I thought I was suppose to be and be the parent God meant me to be. My kids say "Thank You".
This book has changed my life and the atmosphere of our family. I wish I would have read it years ago, but none the less, it still applies to right now and all ages of children. It totally shifts the paradigm of punishment to natural consequences. Relationship with our kids is paramount in this book and it has transformed my relationships with my children. This is a must read!
