PUT THE DISCIPLE INTO DISCIPLINE gives parents the tools they need to truly disciple their kids through their most trying discipline situations.
What do you say when your kid has really messed up?
How do you respond when your three-year-old is throwing pennies at other carts as you walk through the aisles at Target? Or when your eight-year-old daughter rolls her eyes in a dramatic fit of preteen angst? Or when your sixteen-year-old son is lying as he attempts to go somewhere that he never should be?
These are the tough moments in parenting.
But they are also the moments that will define your kids.
We want to give parents the tools they need to truly disciple their kids through their most trying discipline situations. With these tools, parents can guide their kids' hearts towards the God who loves them deeply, and survive those pull-out-your-hair parenting moments. We pray that PUT THE DISCIPLE INTO DISCIPLINE will help parents to connect with their kids in a heartfelt way so that their kids, in turn, can connect with the God who created them to be truly and imperfectly His.

This book is full of encouragement, practical application and points back to the heart of the child in every chapter. I flew through the pages and know I'll keep this book handy for referencing in the years to come.
Put the Disciple into Discipline: Parenting with Love and Limits is a practical parenting book by Erin MacPherson and Ellen Schuknecht. Erin is a mother of three kids, and Ellen is a mother of three adult children and eleven grandchildren. The authors talk about topics relating to parenting, such as self-control, perfection, gratefulness, shame, anger, belonging, kindness, modesty, morality, bullying, fear, and faith. The book also includes stories of how the authors parented in specific situations, and it also explores the child’s point of view in these situations. One of my favorite chapters of Ellen’s was “Drifting Apart,” which discusses navigating relationships with your children as they gain independence and separate identities from their parents. One of my favorite chapters of Erin’s was “When Shame Takes Over,” which examines how to help a shame-driven child and gives practical solutions for dealing with shame. I loved Ellen’s chapter on modesty – especially how the author points out how damaging illogical modesty rules can be for children. Erin’s chapter on bullying is probably more beneficial if your child is the bully rather than if they are being bullied. (On a side note, if your child is being picked on, there are many books and websites specifically devoted to bullying.) It is nice to have the perspectives of two different mothers; it would be interesting to discuss this book with your spouse, seeing how your own parenting style compares and contrasts to that of both authors. *I received this book for review*
I loved this book! It really helped me examine my motives as a parent and how I want to teach their hearts and not just get them to obey. This book flowed well, it kept my attention (I was highlighting so much), and offered practical steps I could take.
