Overview

Parenting.

Is there anything more important? Or more difficult?

How can you help your children navigate complex situations, "gray areas," rapid change and other "danger" zones? How can you understand and apply biblical principles in today's world? This is a constant challenge for thoughtful parents.

Featuring the combined wisdom of doctors, pastors, business people, counselors, homemakers, lawyers and professors, Thoughtful Parenting is an excellent guide for families. From adolescence, baptism and computer games to allowances, blessing and credit cards, editors R. Paul Stevens and Robert Banks have compiled concise summaries of biblical teaching and practical advice on nearly one hundred topics critical to parents. While providing a source for quick reference, Thoughtful Parenting also goes further than most books on parenting--offering fresh and fascinating reflection on "how come" as well as "how to."

Thoughtful Parenting is essential reading for parents who want biblical, practical, balanced and reliable answers--for themselves and for their children.
