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. :-)

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.
