This book should be required reading for all those in counseling. Everything we are stems from our parents. Even those of us who have very little contact with our parents can learn a great deal, even if we don't have children.
This book teaches why we are the way we are and how we can overcome the wrongs that have been done us by just understanding where our feelings are coming from. As a grown adult raising children I have learned more about myself in the span of reading this one book, then I have in my whole lifetime.
I feel this book will help anyone with their walk with Christ.

Reading this book when it was first published 15 years ago, I thought it was sooo good that I developed an entire class based on its outline. I've taught that class at my home church now, since 1993, to hundreds of people. And I've read a lot more books on Christian parenting since then too.

This book remains the single best parenting guide I have read. There are LOTS of terrific authors out there, including Dobson, Rainey, Smalley, etc. But this book compartmentalizes an easy-to-remember approach to parenting in the "6 A's of Positive (Biblical) Parenting" which anyone can remember.

With 4 kids myself, I cannot remember any situation we've faced in which I was unable to effectively address things using one or more of the 6 A's explained in this book. That's what makes it so valuable - you can actually remember the concepts and techniques and how to apply them.

The book is full of personal examples from the authors' live which will make you laugh and bring a tear or two. It's a great, personal, volume chock full of practical advice and FUN. You'll love reading it and the pages will fly past.

Now that it's out of print, get yourself a used copy from a reputable seller!

I have read this book over the 20 years I have been a parent. It is so very beneficial not only when your kids are small but also as they grow. I know that there have been many things my husband and I learned from this book that our kids benefited from. One of the most important was saying "sorry" when we as a parent failed, and asking their forgiveness. We love our children and want to be able to have the opportunity to speak grace and truth into their lives for many years to come and this book points us to the True Source in all of that.

I loved this book because it has a timely recommendation for parents. Don't waste your time on things that won't matter...enjoy your time with your kids, give them plenty of love and limits. They are the future and they need to be loved!!!

Amazon fix your link so your Kindles can download the book. I downloaded it when it was incorrectly title "How To Change Your Church...". It seems now you've at least changed the title to the correct one, but it seems new prospective would be owners can't download it anymore... tragic.

The book contain great practical helps even after all these years since its publication in 1991. We have been using book here in family ministry at an overseas location with great benefits to those involved. Parents' eyes have been opened and they're excited to know that there is a way to learn how to love their children through the 6 A's plan and become their children's hero in the process.
