Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp

I am hoping from what I have read will transform my parenting focus and method. It has so many biblically rooted truths and I appreciate the boldness of the author to write this book. I have described it as frustratingly enlightening. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to parent their children in a way that is grounded in pointing them towards Christ.

I read that book too! I liked it a lot. I combine that one with what I read in "To Train Up a Child." Hope you are doing well!

I appreciated the book when I first read it, and I appreciate it now as I have gotten to see the fruit of a daughter who has a heart for the Lord. My only complaint of this book, is that he instructs parents to discipline in love, but doesn't clearly instruct parent on developing loving intimacy with their children, especially outside of the disciplinarian role.

I read it what seems like eons ago so I can't remember it's particular strengths and weaknesses. But I do remember it stating about making our discipline point towards the issues of a sinful heart and help our children find motivation for good behavior to be grounded in pleasing the Lord.
