Teach Them Diligently: How to Use the Scriptures in Child Trainingby Louis Paul Priolo
Pub. Date: 09/28/2000
Publisher: Timeless Texts, Incorporated
The bookshelves in your home no doubt contain volumes of books, manuals, seminar notes, magazine articles, and video and audio cassettes purporting to address parenting from a Christian point of view. With rare exception, however, most of today's Christian parenting resources fail to emphasize what is perhaps the most important aspect of true biblical parenting -- how to relate the Bible to the disciplinary process in practical ways. Think about it. With all of your training, do you really know how to use the Bible for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness with your children? If you do, read no further. If you don't, this little book will augment and strengthen your parenting skills as you learn how to use the Scriptures more thoroughly and effectively in your child training.

It has been the desire of my husband and I to raise our children in a truly God-centered home. We knew that meant more than daily devotions and bedtime prayers, but were not sure how to incorporate the Bible into every day living. The principles in ¿Teach Them Diligently¿ changed our parenting and our own lives as well! God has clearly set forth in the Bible a process for change. We want our children to trust in Christ for their salvation and grow to be like Him. I found this book to be practical, logical, and most of all Biblical!
Is it possible, in our so called modern society, that spanking children can still be taught in a book about raising children? It is proven by many studies that almost all small children are smacked during the first three years of life when they begin to walk and to touch objects which may not be touched. This happens at exactly the time when the human brain builds up its structure and should thus learn kindness, truthfulness, and love but never, never cruelty and lies. It is also proven that beaten children very early on assimilate the violence they endured, which they may glorify and apply later as parents, in believing that they deserved the punishment and were beaten out of love. Hitting a prisoner is denounced as torture, beating an animal cruelty but slapping a child should be called raising him?!!! The author of that book must have been mistreated very harshly to consider teaching others how to abuse children from early age to adulthood...
If anybody loves God at all, they will know better than the author of this book that LOVE SHOULD NOT HURT and that JESUS WOULD NOT HAVE WHIPPED ANYONE, LET ALONE CHILDREN to teach them anything in life. HORRIBLE !!!
This book follows the usual Proverbs-heavy formula I've become accustomed to with babywhipping books - whacking kids with sticks to get instant obedience. But also for anger, complaining, disrespect, selfishness, and even worry! This book even suggests spanking children right up until, and including, adulthood. Ask yourself, 'Would Jesus do this?' I am certain that he showed us otherwise!
This book is a corruption of the Holy Gospel. Quote: 'You spank your children because God tells you to. A decision to spank or not to spank should not be left to your moods or whims. If a spanking is necessary for correction, you are not biblically free to decide not to spank.' 'It is the Lord's instructions, not yours.' Jesus commands you not to hurt children. Quote: 'And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.' Mark 9:42. For every book sold, this author should 'have a Millstone hanged about his neck.' It's not my instructions, it's the Lord's!
