This book is definitely annointed

Wow, this book was awesome. Out of all the children's hand books I've read this was definitely the best and most convicting. So often as parents we deal with our children on every level: emotional, physical, but some how we forget about the most important level SPIRITUAL. It is always my desire to lead my children to the Lord but somehow I forget that area and jump straight to punishment for bad behavior. This book is an answer to prayer on how to lead my child to the Lord in every aspect of our family life. Here are some excerpts I found to be the essence of what the message is in this book. 'Sadly, many parents have not thought through methodology. They just get mad and yell. When they have 'had it up there,' they threaten, holler, hit there kids and grow increasingly frustrated.'- page 62 'Biblical discipline addresses behavior through addressing the heart. Remember, the heart determines behavior.'... 'If you only try to change behavior you are missing the real issue-the heart' -page 68 I consider myself to be doing a great job at raising my children to not conform to world and in the way of the Lord, but after I read this book I was guilty of doing so many things wrong that I was glad I read this book now while my children are still toddlers. This book doesn't claim to have all the answers but it causes you to look into your own heart thereby affecting your reactions in dealing with your child's heart. Happy reading!!

Should be 'Crushing a Childs Heart'

This book is yet another book on the 'virtues of hitting your child' disguised as a Christian parenting guide. If you wish to raise your children to be secure, nurturing, loving people, DO NOT buy this book. It refers to children as 'fools' and 'idolatrous.' My children are not fools, so I do not have to hit them. I can take the time to teach them action/consequence and right from wrong without hitting them. Maybe my children are smarter than some? Or maybe some parents are lazier than I? What I can't stand is that it is wrapped up in the protective cloak of Christianity. Now some parents will think it's the 'Christian' way to parent and feel justified in practicing violent parenting to produce fearful, obedient little robots. MY children will know right from wrong, not just 'I'd better do what someone tells me is right or I will be hit.'
