Now available in a handy paperback format, this book provides principles to help you create the kind of home environment conducive to raising successful children, from “Focus on Training” to “When You Have No Other Option, Keep Praying!” “When our children were born over twenty years ago,” the author says, “I researched what the Bible had to say about parenting and made a list of principles. I considered writing my findings up as a book, but refrained from getting it published until our children were grown and I could see how the principles worked. Guess what? They work! We can joyously say today that all three of our boys are living lives that honor the Lord.”

Editorial Reviews

Good Reads - Wendy Cleveland

"14 Secrets to Better Parenting" by Dave Earley is based on the Bible's book of Proverbs outlining the importance of instilling Wisdom, Humility, Prayer, and God's Word into our children's lives. Setting a Good Example and always putting God first is also addressed. While a lot of these principles have been written many times before in other books, Mr. Earley gives you perspective from his own experiences which I thought added more value. I recommend every parent read this one.
Author's Choice Reviews - Carolyn R. Scheidies

14 SECRETS TO BETTER PARENTING is a small volume, with information critical to today's parents. Be great for parents ad well as Sunday School, Bible Study and Parenting Classes.

Pink Stinx - Tammy Winstead

The author continuously quotes scripture from Proverbs to keep his teaching scripture based. I highly recommend this book for newer Christians and especially parents that love application of scripture.
