WickEvansville, IndianaAge: 35-44Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Proverbs 22:6March 29, 2018WickEvansville, IndianaAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Before my wife and I added a couple of girls to our clan, we read a few books that offered us advice on how to be good parents. One of those books was Shepherding a Child's Heart. This book is about speaking to the heart of your child. So often we are focused on the outward behavior of a child, but there is a heart issue that needs to be addressed. At times I felt the parent/child scenarios in Shepherding a Child's Heart were a little rigid and that Tripp was very absolute in his thinking, but overall I benefited from reading Shepherding a Child's Heart. This conservative book has not only helped me as a parent, but it also made me rethink how I approach discipline with my students. If you strongly oppose spanking, you will probably dislike this book (and my review) a great deal. If that is the case, we might have a heart issue, folks. :-)
RVA JasonRichmond, VAAge: 25-34Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5Good until discipline sectionMarch 24, 2014RVA JasonRichmond, VAAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3The book was a good read, providing an approach that deals with the heart. As parents, we need to deal with the heart of the issue not just the symptom behavior. This approach is the correct one, focusing on the child's sin. He lays out steps to constantly point our children in the direction of God and restoring their relationship with Him.
However, he lost me with the level/quantity of spanking. I agree with his method of how spanking should go Spanking should be explained, a tool to correct the child, and never done in anger. I could not imagine spanking my child every time she does not do exactly as i ask the first time at 1-2 years old. Also, he mentioned spanking as early as a young crawler (6 months old?). This seems way too early to me.
Also the stressing of spanking as a discipline being a Biblical mandate is interesting since he deviates from this once the child is older in favor of more effective discipline methods. It is also important to remember that we are not to there to break the spirit of the child. This would be the case with my sweet and sensitive child.
Overall, I believe this is a good book. I am just not going to subscribe to his discipline philosophy regarding spanking as being the only option for discipline as a small child.
LisaNCAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Book that declares a Godward Heart & OrientationDecember 29, 2013LisaNCAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I believe that from what I have gleaned thus far from this book that it definitely speaks to the voids that many Christians have instinctively sensed in their hearts and lives.
Oh how much better so many of us would have been if we'd embraced and witnessed such Godly wisdom from infancy. I am so grateful for the voice of this Author on behalf of all who shall receive--and to the one who mentioned this book to me because she instinctively knew exactly what the Lord was communicating in my life, by doing so affirmatively and graciously.

I felt both conviction and hope. Tedd Tripp helped me to see my role as a parent in a whole new light. My children and I are so blessed to have found this book!
Ps NormanMelbourne, AUAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5My son is proof -- it works!March 17, 2013Ps NormanMelbourne, AUAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 517 years ago, we had the privilege of having Tedd and his wife, Margy, visiting us at a time when we hit a brick wall in handling our first child. They taught us how to "discipline in love". We read the book and practiced it; good results followed immediately.
My son is 18. We couldn't be happier. He is a happy young man with lovely character and excellent moral discernment.
Now, I am a young adult pastor. I highly recommend this book to all parents.
