Description of Parenting by the Book: Biblical Wisdom for Raising Your Child by John Rosemond
With a down-to-earth, warm, and humorous style, one of America’s top family psychologists sets forth a virtually stress-free, biblically based system of childrearing that encourages family growth in harmony with God’s Word.
Imagine respectful, responsible, obedient children who entertain themselves without TV or video games, do their own homework, and have impeccable manners. A pie-in-the-sky fantasy? Not so, says bestselling author John Rosemond. Any parent can raise children who fit that description—happy, emotionally healthy children who honor their parents and their families with good behavior and do their best in school.
As America’s most widely read parenting and family expert, Rosemond offers practical, Bible-based, time-tested advice that will help parents be the best they can possibly be, with children of all ages. Instead of cultivating high self-esteem in your children, Rosemond recommends, instilling self-respect, which comes from teaching them the Three R’s: Respect for others, a willingness to accept Responsibility, and a Resourceful attitude toward the challenges of life.
Educational, informative, and humorous, Parenting by the Book promises to become the standard for church family education programs, as well as a primary reference for parents. Says Glenn Stanton, director of Global Family Formation Studies at Focus on the Family and author of My Crazy Imperfect Christian Family, “John Rosemond does all parents a huge service by skillfully illuminating the timeless wisdom of Scripture that has served generations in raising healthy, happy, obedient human beings.…Parenting by the Book could start a parenting revolution, and I pray it does for the sake of our children.”
