I was excited to get to read <em>How to Raise a Modern-Day Joseph from David C Cook publishers< by Linda Massey Weddle.
Each chapter in part one focuses on a different age group from birth through high school. Ideas are given based on a "master life thread" for each age period. For example, the topic of the preschool age is respect. These chapters share ideas of things to do as a family to teach that concept. It also explains characteristics of the children in that age group. This is particularly beneficial information for to help parents relate to their children on an appropriate level for their interests and understanding. Part two of the book discusses ways for the church to partner with parents through each age group. This is an excellent resource for both your home and church library.
I loved the ideas presented and they way in which they were shared. As parents we cannot rely on a couple of classes done a couple times a week to teach our children Gods word. We must actively participate in training up our children to know the Lord. This is a very practical book that helps in the goal of raising children who know, serve, and love God.

This is the guide to the book How to Raise Modern-Day Joseph. It is plainly writen in a manner that any parent could understand. I like it because it puts the responsibility for raising a spiritually sound child directly on the parent where, in my opinion, it belongs. This book is full of ideas on how to incorporate spiritual training in the home for all the different times in a child's life. It has suggestions for fathers and for mothers. As well, it has a second section that is for the church, where it can support the parents with personal help and with classes for both parents and children, and what to teach at different stages in life as well as set out some guidelines so that parents know what to expect from their church support groups. It's not a day-by-day bible study but rather gives directions on how to establish a plan for your family (very important) and ways of including different projects and ideas into that plan. The author is an experienced member of Awana so many of her ideas also come from that area. Definitely a great read full of usable ideas for parents of children at any stage in life.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
