From the Inside Flap
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.
