Written for parents with children of any age, this insightful book provides perspectives and procedures for shepherding your child's heart into the paths of life. Shepherding a Child's Heart gives fresh biblical approaches to child rearing.
Before my wife and I added a couple of girls to our clan, we read a few books that offered us advice on how to be good parents. One of those books was Shepherding a Child's Heart. This book is about speaking to the heart of your child. So often we are focused on the outward behavior of a child, but there is a heart issue that needs to be addressed. At times I felt the parent/child scenarios in Shepherding a Child's Heart were a little rigid and that Tripp was very absolute in his thinking, but overall I benefited from reading Shepherding a Child's Heart. This conservative book has not only helped me as a parent, but it also made me rethink how I approach discipline with my students. If you strongly oppose spanking, you will probably dislike this book (and my review) a great deal. If that is the case, we might have a heart issue folks. :-)

This is a valuable resource which I wish I had found earlier.
