This book answered so many questions for me. Having read "Shepherding a Child's Heart", I understood the concept of how to parent biblically by looking at heart issues instead of behavior and using scripture to do so, but I didn't know what scriptures to use or exactly how to implement this plan. "Teach Them Diligently" gives the detailed explanation, along with categorized scriptures of how to convict, rebuke, teach, and train your children with God's Word. A must-have for any parent who desires to bring up children to be spiritually equipped to handle life. It makes your life a whole lot easier. My 4 year-old son already has four such scriptures hidden in his heart only two weeks after my husband and I implemented these parenting principles. Thanks Lou!

Format: Paperback
I must say that I am quite saddened at the reviews of this book. I found this the BEST of all books I have read on the subject. Finally someone explains the reason and the way. Not just advice but practical hands on tools. And for those of you who are turned off by it then you may need to reread some of the scripture yourself. Remember we are all sinners.. We are born sinners (Augustine) and it is only by the mercy and grace of Christ that we forgiven. Just as the Father loves us and cannot look upon our sin, he must punish sin so too must we as parents. Love is justice. How can one claim to love their child and then not correct them. The two do not go together. I absolutely loved loved loved this book! We have spread the word and many in our church are now reading it. Thanks Lou! We parents needed that.

This book is excellent! I love it because it works! My Children know that I love them enough to train them in the righteousness of God. My favorite part is the quick reference guide of verses that address specific negative behaviors that is located in the back of the book. I have also read Lou's book entitled 'The Heart of Anger'. They are both full of Love and Wisdom!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
YOU WILL WANT TO GET: Parenting With Scripture: "Parenting With Scripture: A Topical Guide for Teachable Moments" by Kara Durbin (Moody Publishers) as a perfect companion to this book!

A encouraging and scriptural exhortation in the use of the Scriptures with child training, reproof and correction. After reading "Shepherding a Child's Heart" (Shepherd Press), I was left with a desire and the overall concept of Scriptural discipline. I then read one of my favorite books on this subject that takes "Shepherding a Child's Heart" to the next level - "Everyday Talk: Talking Freely and Naturally about God with Your Children" by John Younts (also by Shepherd Press), which filled in many of the practical gaps that "Shepherding" left me with. And now "Teach Them Diligently", full of insightful instruction, dialog and a helpful appendix section including: "Scripture Text for Child Training" & "Questions That Help Bring Conviction".

This book has made me think how important it is to link the events of our lives to Scripture - to train our children (and ourselves) with love and encouragement to "think" Scripture as they encounter challenging (and defining) moments.

22 of 26 people found the following review helpful By T Leary on April 5, 2008
Format: Paperback
Biblical spanking as described by Mr. Priolo is done without anger, in a controlled manner, and is preceded and followed by many words of loving instruction. The use of the term "sadism" to describe this process is wildly inappropriate. Unfortunately, those who do so apparently cannot conceive of the possibility that a parent might be able to carry out this process without losing control and crossing the line toward abuse. Perhaps this says far more about the critics who toss this term around than it does about Mr. Priolo and those who have benefitted greatly from his Biblically sound teaching.

Format: Paperback
This is a great resource for Christian Parents. Those who call Lou's method's child abuse either have not read the book or are not implementing spanking correctly. Spanking done in love to correct and teach a child has nothing to do with the anger and violence of child abuse. Read the book, pray about it, then decide.

Format: Paperback
Priolo is AMAZING! he does what no other author I know has been able to do! .Take the Bible and make it real in a way that transcends the bounds of its paper medium. I started by reading the Heart of Anger and then bought The Complete Husband (Both excellent books). Teaching them Diligently is THE how to guide for biblical parenting. It is cover to cover practical step by step advice on how to use scripture to raise your children the way God meant for them to be raised. The topical appendix in the back is simply priceless. This book has helped me with scripture memorization because it has encouraged and empowered me to access and apply scripture like never before. If you are a Christian Parent - or simply a parent who cares about raising children with character and integrity - your next click should be add to cart!!! ENJOY!

Format: Paperback
For Pete's sake people - get real!! This book in NO way advocates violence against children and you know it!! It's about the PROPER, BIBLICAL use of spanking to drive the foolishness from a child's heart! READ IT before you make stupid comments like this! It puts a great emphasis on the parents' responsibility NOT to spank in anger, but spank in love. Don't be so blinded by your anti-spanking motives that you totally miss the entire point! No parent using this book's approach could ever be accused of anything close to abuse. Sadism? good grief!!!!!! You obviously are coming at this issue with a MAJOR left wing bias!
