Many parenting books either support one extreme- permissiveness, or the other-repression. This guide presents a more effective, flexible and biblical approach- raising your kids with grace and truth. Cloud and Townsend, Christian psychologists with over 20 years of experience help you turn today's children into tomorrow's responsible, productive, and loving adults.
In approaching parenting from both a developmental and spiritual direction, the authors show how biblical character includes competent functioning in areas such as relationship skills, tasks, ownership, responsibility and follow through, self-control, perseverance, delay of gratification, ability to lose and grieve, and the ability to forgive.
