Book Description:

Wondering how to raise great kids? Turn to the Bible’s book of Proverbs for guidance—that’s where author Dave Earley found many of his 14 Secrets to Better Parenting. From “Focus on Training” to “When You Have No Other Option, Keep Praying!”, these principles will help you create the kind of home environment conducive to raising successful children. “When our children were born over twenty years ago,” the author says, “I researched what the Bible had to say about parenting and made a list of principles. I considered writing my findings up as a book, but refrained from getting it published until our children were grown and I could see how the principles worked. Guess what? They work! We can joyously say today that all three of our boys are living lives that honor the Lord.”

My Review:

This book is great especially for Christian parents. In today's world, the Bible principles of parenting are often overlooked. Author shares his experience on applying these principles in bringing up his three sons. This entire book is written based on the book of Proverbs. Throughout the whole books, the author continuously quotes scripture from Proverbs with explanation how to apply them in our parenting journey. The area that the author has covered not limited to but including training, discipline, and bringing the children closer to God. And Wisdom is highly emphasized throughout the whole book. A wise parents will focus on developing the wisdom in their children. Parenting is never an easy task. In fact it is full of challenging as each child is different. This book definitely serve as a good reference to assist us in our parenting journey. 

Note: I receive the ARC of this book from the publisher via Net Gallery. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
