  • Bible Lessons of John Quincy Adams for His Son, The
    by Douglas W. Phillips (Editor)
    ISBN: 1929241224
    Born in 1767, John Quincy Adams entered his country's service while a mere lad as secretary to the Russian Embassy and remained through life a public servant, filling successively the posts of secretary, ambassador, United States Senator, Secretary of State, President, and finally Representative in Congress.

    However, all of these remarkable achievements are secondary to his role as father. Though a busy man, Adams made it his priority to study the Bible and to train his son to love God's Holy Word. His example stands out for all men as a shepherd who loved his family flock. This volume contains nine personal letters of counsel and admonition that he penned to his son while traveling away from home.
  • Born To Fly: How to Discover and Encourage Your Child's Natural Gifts
    by Thom Black
    ISBN: 0310402816
    As "Story Lady" I find myself inclined to pick up children's literature or picture books much more often than "grown up" material, but as I was browsing the book store shelves, just such a book caught my eye. It must have been the cartoon on the cover ). Born To Fly: How to Discover and Encourage Your Child's Natural Gifts is not a typical parenting how-to book. It is engaging and even entertaining while being very thought provoking. While we would consider it absurd for Mama Penguin to attempt to teach her chicks to fly or for Papa Blue Jay to expect his brood to swim, this book points out that we often do just that with our fledglings. While keeping Proverbs 22:6 in mind, author Thom Black shows us practical steps we can take to train up our child in the way he should go—not in the way we would like to (re)make him. This book, written by a Regular Joe, is user-friendly. Since he isn't an expert, you won't find any psychobabble in its pages. Instead, he uses real-life examples which emphasize the uniqueness put into each child by God Himself—for His purposes. The insights, while being profound and provocative, are also stunningly simple. I highly recommend this book to any parent genuinely interested in learning how to "train up your child in the way he should go, [so that] even when he is old he will not depart from it." It wouldn't surprise me a bit if you close this book with a renewed respect for your children. I did.

  • Bringing Up Boys: Practical Advice and Encouragement for Those Shaping the Next Generation of Men
    by James C. Dobson
    ISBN: 084235266X
    With so much confusion about the role of men in our society, it's no wonder so many parents and teachers are at a loss about how to bring up boys. Our culture has vilified masculinity and, as a result, boys are suffering. Parents, teachers, and others involved in shaping the character of boys have many questions. In Bringing Up Boys, Dr. James Dobson, America's most trusted authority on family issues, tackles these questions and offers advice and encouragement based on a firm foundation of biblical principles. Bringing Up Boys--a must-read book for parents, teachers, social workers, youth leaders, counselors--anyone involved in the challenge of turning boys into good men.
  • Changing Your Child's Heart

  • Christian Girl's Guide to Your Mom, The
    by Marilyn C. Hilton
    ISBN: 1584110457
    By taking quizzes and surveys, reading parts of the Bible, learning about other girls and doing activities and crafts, girls aged 9-12 and their moms can build--or build upon--the trust, communication and love that are all important while Mom is still one of most significant influences in her daughter’s life. The Bible-based content clarifies and reinforces Christian values, and helps readers to understand their relationship with Mom as an essential part of God’s exciting plan for them.
  • Courageous Parenting
    by Jack Graham (Author), Deb Graham (Author)
    ISBN: 1581347448
    Sometimes it feels as if the best we can do as a family is to survive. The ups and downs of life leave little energy or hope of doing more than simply gritting our teeth and plugging ahead with life. Anything beyond this seems a long way off. But there is reason to believe that our families can thrive.

    Healthy, God-centered relationships with your spouse and children can be had only through building on the right foundation. There must be genuine faith, morality, spiritual understanding, discipline, enduring patience, character, kindness, love, and much more. This is a daunting list, one that most of us feel is too great a challenge to attain, but it can be achieved by building our families on the unshakable foundation of Jesus Christ.

    Often it seems as if building a strong family is nearly impossible. Parents need to be encouraged, though, because creating and growing a family of this kind is possible by the grace of God through the guidance of His holy Word.

    Throughout the pages of this book, Jack and Deb Graham teach us with biblical models for the home, provide practical advice for parents, and speak from years of their own experience in active ministry and parenting. They offer support and encouragement to parents for the often overwhelming task of raising a family that represents and reflects Jesus Christ, and they put forth a call for courage and godly confidence in forming a biblical legacy for our children and the generations that follow.

  • Faith Begins at Home
    by Mark Holmen
    ISBN: 0830738134
    In the past, faith was a central part of the family's home life, yet the reality for many families today is that faith is no more than one-hour, drop off Christianity. To become the strong, healthy, joy-filled families God intended begins with parents establishing their homes as the primary place where faith is nurtured.

  • Family Driven Faith: Doing What It Takes to Raise Sons and Daughters Who Walk with God
    by Voddie T. Baucham Jr.
    ISBN: 1581349297
    More teens are turning away from the faith than ever before: it is estimated that 75 to 88% of Christian teens walk away from Christianity by the end of their freshman year of college. Something must be done.

    Family Driven Faith equips Christian parents with the tools they need to raise children biblically in a post-Christian, anti-family society. Voddie Baucham, who with his wife has overcome a multi-generational legacy of broken and dysfunctional homes, shows that God has not left us alone in raising godly children. He has given us timeless precepts and principles for multi-generational faithfulness, especially in Deuteronomy 6. God’s simple command to Moses to teach the Word diligently to the children of Israel serves as the foundation of Family Driven Faith.

  • Five Things I Did Right and Five Things I Did Wrong in Raising Our Children: Lessons Learned Looking Back
    by Sarah O. Maddox
    ISBN: 080543142X

  • Growing Little Women: Capturing Teachable Moments With Your Daughter
    by Donna J. Miller, Linda Holland (Contributor)

  • Heart of Anger, The

    ISBN: 1879737280
    Anger! Is it ever a problem in your home? Disrespectful tones? Sibling fights? Loss of patience?
  • Heartfelt Discipline: The Gentle Art of Training and Guiding Your Child
    by Clay Clarkson
    ISBN: 1578565839
    Christian parents are sure of one thing–they must discipline their children. Ask them to define discipline, however, and you will find little agreement. Many parenting experts support a strict, “hands-on” approach–usually in the form of spankings. Other believers think a permissive, “hands-off” is the best way to demonstrate love. Caught between these extremes, well-meaning parents feel torn and even more confused about what the Bible really says on the subject.

    Is there a better way to lovingly train and guide our kids? Yes, says author Clay Clarkson, and in Heartfelt Discipline he offers a long-awaited, biblical discipline solution that is caring and effective–one that leaves parents feeling confident and guiltless, not saddened or conflicted.

    At last, here is a faith-directed approach to discipline that spares the rod but doesn’t spoil the children. Through biblical advice, answers to commonly asked questions, and positive encouragement, Clay Clarkson presents a new, biblical model of discipline–one that allows parents to embrace a completely new way of thinking about childhood discipline, renew their relationships with their children, and transform the dynamics of their family life.

  • Kid CEO : How to Keep Your Children from Running Your Life
    by Ed Young, Rick Warren
    ISBN: 0446691771
    In these days of corporate scandal, there’s a far more pervasive and serious problem going on right under our noses. It’s a family takeover orchestrated by our kids. That’s right – children are taking control of family units in record numbers. When a man and woman marry, says author Ed Young, they occupy the leadership roles in their relationship. But in some cases, as children enter the family arena, that begins to change. The kids slowly become the center of the family universe as parents relinquish control to them. In effect, the children become Kid CEO’s and the parents become the support staff. As parents, we have charge of our children for only a short time. It’s up to us to prepare them for life.
  • Letters and Lessons of Teddy Roosevelt for His Sons, The
    by Douglas W. Phillips (Editor)
    ISBN: 1929241321
    Roosevelt adored his children, four of whom were boys, each of whom he was intent on turning into a man of action. He once commented that his own father was the greatest man he ever knew. His commitment to being the same example for his sons was evident not only in the remarkable globe-trotting adventures on which they accompanied him, but also in the copious letters that he wrote to them, many of which communicated deep truths about manhood, Christianity, and courage.

    The Letters & Lessons of Teddy Roosevelt for His Sons contains some of the most interesting letters and lessons that T.R. wrote to his boys and ably demonstrates how fathers can embrace with vigor their charge to raise up manly sons.
  • Making Children Mind Without Losing Yours
    by Kevin Leman
    ISBN: 0800757319
    As the title indicates, Making Children Mind Without Losing Yours is a book with a friendly, lighthearted approach. Author Kevin Leman (The New Birth Order Book) speaks directly from his experiences as a father of five and a practicing psychologist. While you won't find specific studies or statistics here, you will find straightforward, practical suggestions that often get right to the heart of troubling situations.

    Leman's technique, which he refers to as "reality discipline" is based on a particular passage from the Bible, and his book is liberally sprinkled with his religious beliefs. These references will make this book a particular favorite for some readers; his stance that parents' authority comes directly from God is a fundamental principle of his text, and some parents may prefer a less evangelistic approach. That said, it's hard to disagree with suggestions such as "train yourself to be a good listener" and "give your children direct eye contact." Nearly every suggestion is coupled with a real-life example of the behavior in discussion, making for an easy read, and every chapter ends with questions labeled "to review and apply" as well as a short section of concepts to put into practice. The section dealing with divorce suggests you make a list of the chapter's suggestions you find difficult and create a plan to implement them. Leman assumes that anyone reading this book can find the time to create such plans themselves, and doesn't provide his readers with any step-by-step charts. If you're not up to creating your own action plans, you may prefer a more detailed form of help than this book offers. --Jill Lightner

  • Parenting by the Book: Biblical Wisdom for Raising Your Child
    by John Rosemond
    ISBN: 1416544844
    Picture respectful, responsible, obedient children who entertain themselves without television or video games, do their own homework, and have impeccable manners. A pie-in-the-sky fantasy? Not so, says family psychologist and bestselling author John Rosemond. Any parent who so desires can grow 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.

    In the 1960s, American parents stopped listening to their elders when it came to child rearing and began listening instead to professional experts. Since then, raising children has become fraught with anxiety, stress, and frustration. The solution, says John, lies in raising children according to biblical principles, the same principles that guided parents successfully for hundreds of years. They worked then, and they still work now!

    Through his nationally syndicated newspaper column and eleven books, John has been helping families raise happy, well-behaved children for more than thirty years. In Parenting by The Book, which John describes as both a "mission and a ministry," he brings parents back to the uncomplicated basics. Herein fi nd practical, Bible-based advice that will help you be the parent you want to be, with children who will be, as the Bible promises, "a delight to your soul" (Pro. 29-17). As a bonus, John also promises to make you laugh along the way.
