Editorial Reviews

Review

"Effective Parenting offers real solutions for real problems. The secrets were obviously based on tried and proven techniques rather than theories made up by experts in the child psychology field - who have probably never had real kids!" -- Lori Price, New Jersey

"My 10 year old daughter and I both have a problem with our anger. I am eager to put this plan into action!" -- Rene Simons, New York

"This material is captivating and informative. Scriptural principles are brought to bear on real-life problems and situations to provide solutions that any parent can use effectively." -- Damien Howard, Maryland

"When society decides to license parents, your book, tapes and course should be one of the requirements!" -- Denise Comsudis, New Jersey

More About the Author

Scott Turansky, D.Min., and his wife, Carrie, have five children. Dr. Turansky directed a preschool for eight years and is presently a counselor and seminar speaker and lives in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. Scott is the cofounder of the National Center for Biblical Parenting and the pastor of Calvary Chapel Living Hope.

Scott is committed to helping parents understand a heart-based approach to parenting. Although many parents use behavior modification to try to change their kids, Scott believes that approach is incomplete because it doesn't consider the fact that God created every person with a heart. That realization opens many new avenues to help parents work with their kids.

Format: Paperback
With all of the "How To" manuals out on parenting, it is hard to know which will be the most helpful in rearing children. After reading several books on this subject, I have found "Eight Secrets to Highly Effective Parenting" to have the most APPLICABLE techniques and principles. For example, after reading the first three chapters, I began using some of the "Secrets" on discipline and I witnessed an immediate change in how my two year old was responding to my correction. It took me one night of reading these chapters and I was able to use the methods right away. The other thing I appreciated about this book is that it is very easy to read because it gives examples of situations we all face with our kids. I have already given copies of this book to family members! Get this book! The "Secrets" work!

This is the best stuff on parenting I've seen (and I've seen a lot of Christian materials). Most of the parenting books I've read agree with what the authors say about parenting, they just don't tell us HOW to do it. This book does!!
I have been praying about what to do regarding some undesirable behaviour in my children (and in myself), and this book is the answer to those prayers! It is worth every penny.

This book is wonderful, especially for parents who have school-age children. Turansky and Miller explain why expressing anger when children misbehave is detrimental to relationships and how to respond to misbehavior in a way which will bring about change from the heart. They discuss the difference between obedience and honor and explain how parents and children can honor each other. The bad attitudes in our family are melting away.

I read this book 9 years ago and it was very helpful with my three year old. I suggested it to my sister-in-law, who is having problems with her two year old. I sent it as a gift to her and just gave my copy to my other sister-in-law with 4 kids. I am about to purchase 2 more copies, one for myself and one for a friend. I love this book.
