Thank God for people like Crystal Lutton who can look beyond the traditions of man and see through to the heart of God concerning parenting by the BOOK (meaning God's book). I struggled for many years,following the prescribed so called "Biblical" methods of punishment before learning the truth of Grace Based Discipline! If you think it is Biblical to punish your children, but something in your spirit tells you otherwise, then Crystal's book is the book for you! Crystal's book gives suggestions for developing family goals and a family motto, information about why the "rod" verses are not synonomous with spanking, practical tools for teaching and modelling Godly behavior (such as the 5 steps, comfort corner, conflict resolution, 1,2,3, transistion, and reflecting feelings among others), and she thoroughly describes how God parents us and models parenting for us as well. I am so excited to finally have a book that I have no reservations about so that I can give it to parents who are badly in need of a departure from the bullying and controlling mindset of law based parenting! This is 144 pages of the best parenting information I have ever read and I have read A LOT!!

Yes! Crystal Lutton hits the spot here! I began spanking with my second child (strong-willed girl!), backing up my decision with bible verses that talk about using a "rod" for discipline, but it just never felt...right. Crystal's book goes into GREAT detail about how the Bible isn't literally commanding that we "beat" our kids with a "rod" (spank), but that we are to be a constant presence of authority in their lives. She also explains how with infants, ALL needs/wants should be met; with toddlers, you teach; with a "child" you correct, and then as they get even older you work up to allowing natural consequences to occur (within a safe limit). Her creative tools (ideas) for this concept are excellent, and I look forward to implementing them with my three blessings.

For years, I struggled with the Christian community's ideas on parenting. I followed "expert" advice within the Christian community with my daughter and it left me feeling like a hypocrite. Biblical Parenting gives great insight into what the Bible says about parenting and how we can glorify God in our relationship with our children. There are lots of great tools in here for positive, get off your (...) parenting. I use them daily and have seen my relationship with my children grow and flourish as a result. Thank you Lord for Pastor Crystal and her burden for families!

As a father of four (one still on the inside!) this would rate as the most sensible, Biblically based book on parenting I have ever read.
The principles outlined in this book have been practised in our home for the last 2.5 years resulting in improved relationships and increased understanding with our children in contrast to other "Biblical" methods we tried.
I believe this parenting style reflects the Father heart of God to our children and has been written "for such a time as this."
I have already recommended this book to several members of my family and will continue to do so. This message needs to go far and wide. Thanks Crystal for blessing our family!

I'm an editor and come across all sorts of books in my work. As a non-religious person, I was wary of accepting this manuscript (I edited this book). After the first couple of chapters, I was enthralled by Pastor Lutton's wisdom, her knowledge, and her compassion for people. It was well-researched and the tone of her writing is kind and loving. The book touched something within me and I took her advice to heart! I'm a mom of almost five and was pretty set in my ways but I have to say her book changed me and my parenting. Thank you, Crystal, for a wonderful, timely book. I was honored to work with you on this!

A Kid's Review on March 24, 2006
Format: Paperback
My mom would spank me and my younger sisters whenever we did something wrong. Dad hated it as much as we did. Dad found this book and gave it to Mom and now she doesn't spank anymore. I still can't get away with stuff and that stinks but at least I'm not getting spanked anymore. Thank you Mrs. Lutton for writing this book. I'm glad my Dad found it and gave it to Mom. We threw away the books that say to spank. Now when Mom gets mad I'm not afraid she'll hit us.

I wanted to like this book. I was excited to read it and appreciated it at first, especially some of her points on the biblical explanation of words that were mistranslated when the English Bible was made, however, there reached a point where her discussion on spanking became a strongly judgmental rant. I do not spank and do not like spanking. I would say I am very passionate about teaching children without physical and punitive consequences, but I still found her words to be condemning, judgmental, harsh and overly-preachy. I think her approach to education was laced with heated criticism and if she hoped to reach a spanking audience to non-spanking, I feel she fell short and/or failed. Now I don't know if I should throw the book out or give it to Goodwill, but then I shudder to think of someone reading it who is searching for an unbiased, well-rounded research on biblical parenting.
