Publisher's Description

Picture respectful, responsible, obedient children who entertain themselves without television or video games, do their own homework, and have impeccable manners. A pie-in-the-sky fantasy? Not so, says family psychologist and bestselling author John Rosemond. Any parent who so desires can grow children who fit that description -- happy, emotionally healthy children who honor their parents and their families with good behavior and do their best in school.

In the 1960s, American parents stopped listening to their elders when it came to child rearing and began listening instead to professional experts. Since then, raising children has become fraught with anxiety, stress, and frustration. The solution, says John, lies in raising children according to biblical principles, the same principles that guided parents successfully for hundreds of years. They worked then, and they still work now!

Through his nationally syndicated newspaper column and eleven books, John has been helping families raise happy, well-behaved children for more than thirty years. In Parenting by The Book, which John describes as both a "mission and a ministry," he brings parents back to the uncomplicated basics. Herein fi nd practical, Bible-based advice that will help you be the parent you want to be, with children who will be, as the Bible promises, "a delight to your soul" (Pro. 29-17). As a bonus, John also promises to make you laugh along the way.

Editorial Reviews

"John Rosemond is one of the few psychologists I've ever met who always makes sense. This is the best common-sense guide to parenting I've read in a long time." -- Dr. Kevin Leman, author of Making Children Mind without Losing Yours
"If you think 'new' is always better, this is not the book for you. John does all parents a huge service by skillfully illuminating the timeless wisdom of Scripture that has served generations in raising healthy, happy, obedient human beings. I was struck, both as a parent and a professional, at how simply and practically John presents these biblical truths for mothers and fathers. Parenting by The Book could start a parenting revolution, and I pray it does for the sake of our children." -- Glenn T. Stanton, director, Global Family Formation Studies at Focus on the Family and author of Marriage on Trial and My Crazy Imperfect Christian Family
"Truly a masterpiece. John's concepts are consistent with both biblical principles and the best parenting research. As such, they work! A must-read for parents and professionals who work with parents." -- DuBose Ravenel, MD, FAAP, pediatrician and emeritus member of Focus on the Family medical advisor team

    My sons are who they are because of Dr Rosemond!
    March 10, 2015
    Parenting through Dr. John Rosemond
    Today my sons are 27 & 29 respectively. Not having parents to define a role model for me, I went to the book store and found parenting book written by John Rosemond, a family psychologist, I read he was raised by a single mom, . I gobbled up his books from infancy to teenagers, I went to hear him speak, I read his syndicated columns.

    Dr. John Rosemond became my mentor! I teach across the USA in Public Safety and there is not one class that I don't bring up his name even today after all these years. One of my favorite quotes is "You must first fill your own warehouse before you can give to others". I interpreted that as fulfilling all of my needs in order for me to be a better woman, mother, friend etc.. I took time to exercise, eat right, do things I enjoyed etc. in order to be the kind of MOM my sons deserved and I wanted to be.

    Thank you Dr.Rosemond, As a Christian, I can see that God guided me right to you and continues to do so now that I am married to a wonderful man and have a 7 year old step daughter I'm responsible for. My sons have children of their own, and I have provided them with your guidance as they raise their children today. I can proudly say that you were a big factor in the raising of my sons. They became respectful, honorable men who have contributed positively to their community. A proud US Marine Mom. GOD BLESS YOU

    This review was written for Parenting by the Book.
    Author John Rosemond is a family psychologist who has directed mental-health programs and been in full-time private practice working with families and children. Rosemond has a weekly syndicated parenting column appearing in more than 200 newspapers, and he has written 15 best-selling books on parenting and the family.

    Including his latest: Parenting by The Book; Biblical Wisdom in Raising Your Child.

    It seems like we all remember our own childhood as the good-ol-days. The days before smart phones, and realistic video games. We all had our elbows off the table, we all cleared our own plates and we always said "please" and "thank you," right?

    Yea right....

    But is that family dynamic still achievable? Or has that era vanished completely? Author John Rosemond argues for a happy and emotionally healthy child in this book. Upfront, yes this is a Christian book that teaches some biblical principles on child-rearing - and yes - upfront the author does advocate for real and actual punishments for disobedience.

    Personally we all have our own tolerance, limits and baggage about what constitutes punishment and going "too far" but we each make those choices as parents and I think the author would agree.

    The thing I thought was the most striking was where the author touched on "respect." I have to say that I highly agree and think this is where many parents fail their children; teaching them to respect themselves as well as others.

    This book has a lot of information and the author's voice is often humorous and easy to listen to. I think the one disconnect for me was how much this book felt like "Doctor Spock." Not so much the way it was presented, but the mentality. There is definitely a "throw back" approach to parenting in this book - it's not a "modern" approach to Biblical child rearing by any stretch and the author clearly says this is was how his own parents and "grand parents" raised him.

    There is a lot of great stuff here, but nothing that stands out as earth shattering. Granted I have not read many biblical parenting books - but this book just felt sort of "middle road" for me.

    Thank you to Howard books for the free review copy for a fair and honest review.

    I can't say enough good about this book. I wish so much I had this available when raising my three sons. Fortunately all are doing well, married, great careers etc.

    However, after reading this book I can see that I would have had more confidence and an easier time of it had I understood the some of principals in this book. I have now passed it on to one of my daughter-in-laws who showed an interest.

    Thank you John Rosemond!

    An excellent book for parenting! John Rosemond's honesty is refreshing. What could be better than parenting by God's Word?
