Last week I told you about a new Christian parenting resource that is launching next week. Remember – I said it’s available to purchase now, but you’ll want to wait until launch week (April 29 – May 5) to purchase it so you can get $400+ in extra goodies? Okay, glad you remembered because that’s super important.
I was very fortunate to get a sneak peek of The Christian Parenting Handook from the National Center for Biblical Parenting. Hopefully I can help you decide if this book would be a good fit for your family by telling you a little bit more about it and sharing with you what I liked about the book. And if you stick around until the end, there is a giveaway with 5 winners!
The National Center for Biblical Parenting is launching their brand new parenting resource next week – The Christian Parenting Handbook: 50 Heart-Based Strategies for All the Stages of Your Child’s Life by Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN. It is full of practical advice and wisdom to help you parent your child through all their years of development and change. The Christian Parenting Handbook doesn’t just provide you with a list of ideas, tips, and advice on parenting – it shows you how to use these ideas and put them into practice.
The 50 strategies provided in this book will help you focus on your child’s heart issues rather than just their behavior. While reading, you will begin to formulate your Biblical parenting philosophy that you can easily apply to the daily interactions that take place in your home.
- Consistency Is Overrated
- Build Internal Motivation
- Identify Character Qualities to Address Problems
- Parenting Is an Investment – Think Long Term
- The Difference Between Punishment and Discipline
- Don’t Practice in the Grocery Store – That’s the Final Exam
- Don’t Give In to Manipulation
- To Spank or Not to Spank
- Privilege and Responsibility Go Together
Overall, I feel that this is an excellent resource to have on your parenting bookshelf, right next to your Bible! I don’t think any parent could go wrong with this book. This will be a book I pull out often and refer to again and again.
