I’m a father of four children, two boys, and two girls, and I only wish that this book would have been available to me when I was first starting out. What Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller have done is put together 50 practical and useful strategies that any parent can and should be using.
No child comes with a “how-to” manual but instead most parents take what they have learned or observed either from friends who are parents, or from their own parent. This often leads one to a sense of major ups and downs and successes and failures.
The Christian Parenting Handbook is a great resource to assist parents in building a strategy for each individual child and of course its not focused on the outward, but instead, it brings into play the child’s heart.
For many parents the struggle is to change the child’s outward behavior and often they grab onto quick fixes, rather than getting to the root of the issue, the heart!
Each of the 50 strategies that are shared in this book are not only practical but are solidly based on Biblical principles. Most parenting books fail to start with the Word and just give advice, but that is not what the Turansky and Miller desire to do. They start with the word and build around it biblical ideas for parent’s to not only minister to their child but to help them see their hearts the way God does and how to make the needed changes to help the child live the way God desires.
I want to highly recommend that where ever you are in the parenting journey, this book is for you! It is never to late for you to employ these strategies for your family. Each one is so practical and useful that anyone can implement them.
