The Christian Parenting Handbook
The Christian Parenting Handbook is made up of 50 short chapters approaching different discipline problems that parents might have with their kids. I don't have children of my own, so I feel like I am not the best person to review this book. I was drawn to it though, since it approaches disciple through reaching a child's heart. Even though I don't have my own children, I feel as if this book is a good tool to have on one's bookshelf if you work with children through your job or volunteer work (like teaching Sunday school). Turansky and Miller don't try and set parents up with a formula to work with their kids, but rather encourage parents to look for the root of their discipline problems and try to reach their children's heart. I like how each chapter is short and to the point, which works well for busy adults, and that they include examples along with scripture verses in the chapters to validate the points they make.
So, whether you have children of your own or you work with kids and would like ideas on how to help them mature in their talents, I think this is a marvelous book to have on your shelf.
