Raise the standard for raising kids! Considered among America's most widely read parenting experts, nationally syndicated columnist and psychologist Rosemond presents practical principles for nurturing children of character. Arguing that respect for others - rather than self-esteem - guarantees happier, more emotionally healthy kids, he lays out a simple, Bible-based model for successful child rearing. Study guide included. Hardcover.
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.
John Rosemond is a family psychologist who has both directed mental health programs and engaged in full-time private practice working with families and children. Since 1979 he has written a weekly syndicated parenting column that now appears in more than 200 daily newspapers. He is one of the busiest speakers in the parenting field, giving more than 200 talks a year; he is also a noted parenting "expert." He and his wife, Willie, have two grown children and seven grandchildren. For more information, visit Rosemond.com and ParentingBytheBook.com.
"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."
"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."
