Are you looking for a book concerning how to parent young children biblically?  Specifically with the issue of toddlers’ problem of whining, misbehavior and being out of control?  This counseling “mini-books” is immensely helpful on this topic.  I highly recommend it to parents and those who minister to young parents.  Like the other three booklets I read in this series this one also turned out to be very useful.

Establish the need: What is your greatest priority for your kids? What do you desire the most for your kids?  Is it for them to have a good job, take care of you when you are older, contribute to society or be independent?  These are not wrong in of themselves, but what should your greatest priority for your kids should be?

Purpose: Today we will see seven reasons why we should set the priority of desiring our children’s’ salvation in how we parent our children.

  1. Hell is a real place for sinners (Matthew 10:28, Matthew 13:50)
  2. We should already desire all people to come to Christ (1 Timothy 2:4, Romans 9:3, Romans 11:14)
  3. All parents should desire what’s best for their kids (Matthew 7:11; Proverbs 13:22)
  4. Jesus does not want us to hinder children coming to Him (Matthew 19:14)
  5. Stumbling little kids is a serious penalty (Matthew 18:6)
  6. It is so important believers are called to continue to be married to unbelievers for the sake of children’s salvation (1 Corinthians 7:12-14)
  7. God wants kids to even silence the mockers (Psalm 8:2, Matthew 21:15-16)

Arlene Pellicane. Parents Rising: 8 Strategies for Raising Kids Who Love God, Respect Authority, and Value What’s Right by Arlene Pellicane.  Chicago, IL: Moody Publishing, April 3rd, 2017. 176 pp.

Purchase: Amazon

This is a Christian book on parenting.  The author is Arlene Pellicane who is a public speaker on Christian parenting and she is a frequent guest on various radio show interviews such as Fox & Friends, Focus on the Family, and The 700 Club.  I admit I’m frequently on guard with “pop Christian” self-help sort of books and resources and my guard was up reading this book.  Nevertheless I did find this book useful.
