Anonymous5 Stars Out Of 5An Absolutely Helpful BookSeptember 12, 2020AnonymousThis book was so very helpful to me as a new father trying to understand how to raise my kids in a Christ honoring manner. It was so helpful that I have read it twice and have referred to it many times... one of the nice aspects of the book is that it has a section (Part 2) that addresses different age classes of children. So, as my children have grown, I have been able to go to those sections and read information for their specific age (which I have done often). I read the book in 2007 and 2012. My kids are now 15 and 16.5 and are Believers.
Parenting is so hard... there are so many struggles both externally and internally. This book was an excellent guide for me but, it is certainly not the only resource you need. The only book that can help you navigate all the issues and unexpect'eds of life is the Bible (and LOTS of prayer!). But, this book really helped me get focused on what my true objective is as a parent- helping my kids align their hearts and minds with Jesus. That's what the book is about. I have read the poor reviews of this book and they ALL refer to the author's view of spanking. In fact, I scratch my head because they make it sound like the book is all about and obsessed with spanking, which it is not, not at all. He definitely lists it as a tool but, he is diligent in explaining the proper heart and approach to such a practice. Look at the Contents pages of the book and you will really see what this book is about. Its about connecting with your child on the heart level and then understanding how to move their heart toward God. The main message of his book is connect with your kids spiritually, emotionally, mentally and relationally but, you do it as their parent, not their "friend". I can't really do the book justice with my own words so, I highly recommend you read the book but, read it prayerfully and attentive to the Spirit. I have recommended the book to many folks and they have found it very helpful.

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. :-)
