About the Author
J.C. Ryle was the first Anglican bishop of Liverpool, England, and lived from 1816-1900. He was an extremely popular preacher in his day, practical and easily understood, and an author of numerous books, most well known of which were Holiness and Practical Religion.

The entire premise of the book centers around Proverbs 23:6, which says "Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Some of the duties that Ryle states parents have is to train children in the way that they need to go, not in the way they want to, to train children with all love and affection, to train them by our actions and not just our words, to train them by considering their soul first, to train them to a knowledge of the Bible and how to pray, and more.
You can feel the weight of Ryle's passion as you read his words, and I found myself stopping several times throughout to pray for God's grace to enable me to put his words into action.
You won't regret purchasing this book, and you will be glad that it is short, as you will probably want to reread it often as a refresher on how God would have us raise our children. The book doesn't take long to read, so it is perfect for frequent review.
