Book Review by Kennis M.
I love this book. It has really changed and added to my parenting. each page is like reading a sermon. I will share that I don’t think this book is for those parents who don’t actually want to teach or train they’re children. I mean, this book really calls you(the parent) to examine your own thinking and change.
If you are not ready for that, don’t buy it. I am a firm believer that God is the leader. I bought this book because I couldn’t understand my two year old. He was always throwing tantrums and freaking out about everything.
He was also very mean and unkind to his sister. Ok so he’s two right? I was already seeing his character come out and it was not something I was prepared to deal with. A lot of my friends recommended this book. So I bought it. It changed my way of thinking and handling my son. Within in days I saw a difference in him and even the people around me started to notice he was so much more happier.
It even helped me realize that my daughter who is a “good kid” naturally, needed to be called higher. She always obeys and does what shes told. But because of that we overlooked a lot of heart issues with her.
With the plethora of material on parenting and the family, it is surprising and distressing to see how few books are genuinely biblical. Here is a refreshing exception. Tedd Tripp offers solid, trustworthy, biblical help for parents. If you are looking for the right perspective and practical help, you won t find a more excellent guide. –John MacArthur
Tedd Tripp knows what he is talking about and who he is talking to. He knows children, he knows parents…and he knows the ways of God. This book teaches you what your goals should be and how to pursue these ends practically. It teaches you how to talk to your children and what to talk about. It will inspire you to become a different kind of parent. This is a masterful book. –David Powlison
I am glad to recommend this book for its remarkably clear, biblical, and practical teaching. Earnest fathers and mothers will find it also eminently “do-able.” –Elisabeth Elliot
