We need a parenting revolution!
Most parenting approaches end up encouraging children to ask the wrong questions about life: Whats in it for me? Are you going to pay me for that? Whats the minimum I need to do to get by?
But Gods Word gives us a better way to parent, one that builds strong internal motivation in children. When parents change the way they parent, kids change the way they live. This practical book explores a theology of internal motivation and then gives parents real-life solutions to equip their kids for life.
Youll learn . . .
• how to parent in ways that build internal motivation so that kids dont have to rely on you to get things done.
• the four promptings of the conscience and how to coordinate your parenting to take advantage of them.
• ways to energize your spiritual training with fun and creativity.
• how to help children respond to mistakes instead of blaming, defending, or justifying.
The greatest gift you can give your child is strong moral and spiritual developmentthis book shows you how. Every chapter includes practical examples of families applying the Bible to their current issues.
Join the revolution!
Rocky Mountain HighDurango, COAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wish I'd read this book 40 years agoMarch 21, 2016Rocky Mountain HighDurango, COAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I wish this book had been available forty years ago when I was raising my children. I wish all of my children had read this manual before they started having children. We might have been able to avoid some unnecessary heartache.
This book provides tools and hands-on strategies for Christian parents who want to teach their children that happiness may be found in the destination, but character is built in the journey. The authors provide clear insight into how God uses a strong faith and a good conscience as signposts to navigate the road of life, and how parents can help their children understand how these two gifts increase internal motivation. Throughout the book, readers are encouraged to look at the destination's end and to make a commitment to choose the wisest path, not the most convenient.
I received Motive Your Child, by Scott Turansky & Joanne Miller, from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review, and my opinion is that every Christian parent and teacher should mine the treasures this book has to offer.
Mrs ARS4 Stars Out Of 5Children, our greatest treasureMarch 15, 2016Mrs ARSQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Motivate Your Child is a great practical guide. I found encouragement in the fact that I was doing some things right, ways to better meet other needs that have been lacking, and the whys of the advice given. This book really stresses that the parents are the ones that mold and teach the child in everything from relationships, to rules, to faith in God. Being a parent is hard work and takes most of our time and our biggest job as parents is to train our children to do what is right. Not for what they can get out of it or some sort of reward. They are not animals that need to be treated to right behavior. No, they are living souls that have a will of their own and they need to do what is right even if they dont want to. I really liked their chapter titled When Kids Make Mistakes. This chapter is full of helpful questions to get to the issue at hand: confession (what is the wrong), getting to the heart of the matter (what really is behind the defiance), and the third is developing a plan for the next time (giving them ways to think through the situation and cope). And my favorite part was giving our children hope that they can do better next time. This book is very helpful and I recommend it for all parents. I received a copy for an honest review and the opinions are my own.
SusanPMichiganAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5wonderful resourceNovember 19, 2015SusanPMichiganAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Every parents wants that encouragement and how to book. Raising kids is not easy. This book explores a theology of internal motivation and then gives parents real-life solutions to equip their kids for life. What a wonderful answer! Todays society is all about what is in it for me. This has so many options to build that motivation in your kids and help them grow spiritually.
The book is separated into two sections of focus: moral development and spiritual development in children. Under each section has many chapters to keep you going and answer those age old questions about mistakes, consequences, compassion, strategy, Gods plan, scripture, your children and the Holy Spirit and many more. Many helpful reminders such as practice what you preach, are woven into the material. It is a very easy to read approach and easy to understand. I loved the down to earth suggestions and applications for Gods word in parenting my child. A helpful index in the back is useful for targeting specific questions and going back to review things you have learned. What a wonderful legacy to leave on your children knowing they will leave it with their own children. I highly recommend this as a bookshelf keeper for any parent!

The book is jam-packed with biblical examples to demonstrate current issues.
As a health care professional that worked daily with children and their parents, I wish I would have had this book to give in my information list for parents. I think they would have benefited greatly from it.

Carrie5 Stars Out Of 5Great parenting bookNovember 3, 2015CarrieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was privileged to receive a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review, which I will give here. I have since purchased the Action Plan that accompanies this book and look forward to taking it a step further.
This is a great book that exlpains how to get at the heart of your child, not just raise them to behave out of habit, so to speak. It gives some practical ideas that you can use while training your child. It is not a how to manual, rather it is a tool where you feel the authors are walking alongside you. I highly recommend this parenting book, along with the accompanying Action Plan.
