Don't get hung up on reviews by people who have a vendetta against spanking or Christianity. I have used this book as a guide for parenting and I promise you my kids are not abused. In fact they are happy and I rarely have to spank them because it teaches you to discern the heart, not behavior.

I think some people need to read this booj again. Nowhere does he condone beatings or hitting. What I despise is people taking certain versus that have been used in here and twisting it. For example the verse about the rod. It if interperted correctly isnt saying beat your child, its saying not discipling yor child for wrong doing is going to have negative consequences. Use your common sense folks

Great resource for parents and pastors. I would like to take a moment to say that those who rated this book very low must not have read it very closely. It does NOT advocate abusing your children or developing a rigid cold environment for child rearing. The most fundamental issue this book addresses is forming a biblical worldview in which to raise your children and instruct them. If you do not like what the Bible has to say, then don't be disappointed or angry with the book.

Turned my family around for the best. I am so thankful to the Lord for giving us this book. We've reaped a more peaceful home.

If you are looking for a book on how to raise and discipline your children according to bibical standards, this is a terrific book. I heard the author on a radio program and his calm approach really encouraged me.

Read the Bible and dont simply choose single verses to base anything on much less the previlage of raising one if His little ones. This is barbaric to say the least! It supports child abuse both emotional and physical.

When we as parents deal with the behaviors of our children only, we create hypocrites. So important to learn to get to the heart of your children for "Out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks."

Great book! Very different than other child rearing books; amazing approach. We implemented the sytle about 9 months ago, and when done consistently, such a huge sense of peace invades the home. Read the book and approach with an open mind.

I was given this book 11 years ago at a baby shower for my oldest dauhter. The advice in this book continues to bless our family. Tripp clearly explains what the heart matter is, that a soft heart and humility towards God is the ultimate goal. He also gives a good breakdown of parenting at each age range. I appreciated the book when I first read it, and I appreciate it now as I have gotten to see the fruit of a daughter who has a heart for the Lord. My only complaint of this book, is that he instructs parents to discipline in love, but doesn't clearly instruct parent on developing loving intimacy with their children, especially outside of the disciplinarian role. There are some other good books out there on this subject though and would be an excelent companion to this book. Highly recommend.

I was disturbed as a I read this that it was vague in how to parent but kept talking about we are to discipline and tell them it's bc God told us to. I am all for discipline but I don't want the first line of defense to be the 'rod'. This seems to be a book about excusing physical abuse in the name of God.

I am a Christian mother who was seeking a great book on discipline with Biblical values. I was very disappointed in this book. I believe there is a place for spanking but this book seems to imply an excessive use if it. There seems to be a black and white standard with no room for the character of a child. He claims this approach is Biblical, but i disagree. He pushes the role of a parent is almost soley about being a disciplinarian. That is not who God is!!! Makes me wonder what his relationship is like with God. Wont recommend and wish i could get my money back.
