Author: George Barna
George Barna goes beyond youth group and Sunday school and shows parents how to instill in their children a vibrant commitment to Christ.
"The calming voices and quiet authority of the alternating narrators give this Christian parenting guide clarity and appeal. The author’s idea is that instead of blindly following psychological experts or cultural norms on parenting, or basing one’s strategy on what has worked in the past, parents should base their methods on the ideals of godliness found in the Bible. Even with this biblical emphasis, the practical aspects of the lesson will make sense to everyone who cares about children. Parents should be thoughtful when organizing family priorities and be consistent in things like enforcing curfews, influencing choice of friends, providing structure, limiting acting out, and picking battles with children carefully. Tracks called “rapid review” and “hands-on” provide helpful chapter summaries and recommendations."
