    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.

    John Rosemond has provided parents with solidly biblical and exceedingly practice advice on parenting with techniques and illustrations that actually work. I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to all Christian parents.

    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?

    This book brings a new level of PEACE to the home! I have read it twice since my children were in different stages of development and I am so thankful for John Rosemond and his insight. I have gone from stressed out Mom to calm Mom (usually) and the kids are all the better for it. This is a common sense, reality-check for parents that is relevant whether you are a believer or not. Share this book and bless others.
