I was very thankful to receive the opportunity to review and help promote the new book "The Christian Parenting Handbook". Over the years I have read many parenting books. What I love about this book is how different the approach is and the real life practical advice.
The initial layout of the book is a unique and intriguing way to pull someone's attention. Each chapter has a title specific to a question and helping you search for the answers. It make you feel as if you must read it.
I really love that this book leaves the general approach of the behavior and appearance of parenting as a formula, the do it "this way" and all will be fine. What we learn in this book is that each child is a unique and individual person, and the same canned parenting isn't going to work for every child. Much to a parent's dismay, not even every child in the same family will need the same parenting. We are shown that parenting ideas are based on God's Word not just tradition. This book does a wonderful job of reinforcing this belief.
Each example of an idea teaches us the internal motivation for parenting and the child's behavior. We find that our heart has great effects on our learning and the goal of parenting is not the short term obedience but the heart of the child. When we reach the overall heart attitude, we can find the solution to last a lifetime.
As parents we want our children to learn responsibility, and this book clearly teaches that. This book is high on my list of favorite parenting books. I wish it had been around when my son was younger. I picked out things while reading that I would have done differently. I'm thankful though that in this book we learn it's never too late. There is something to learn and apply to any age.
This would be a terrific gift for new parents who are looking to start this journey with a very Biblical approach.
