I don't want to discredit Christian educators, child psychologists, and so forth. They are playing an incredibly important part in helping parents understand their role; for instance, I believe that Focus on the Family, and James Dobson, THE contemporary parenting "guru", had and still has a huge influence on how families raise their children, and I am thankful for that.
If you are parents, or getting there :-), I encourage you to get your hands on some good books from Focus. However, when the theories of the books we read, Christian or not, contradict each other, then we're stuck. How can we really KNOW the best way to raise our children? The answer is quite obvious: Read the Bible!
You might argue that many things in the Bible are either old-fashioned, from another culture, and simply not applicable in our time. You're right, not everything applies to us. But everything can serve to teach us something, to educate us.
When the Apostle Paul wrote his letters, no one had a degree in Child Psychology; no one had heard about ADHD or other such "problems". But when Paul wrote, his thoughts were guided by the Holy Spirit, and He transcends time and culture.Read more ›
Not a pseudo-Christian "self-help" book, this book provides a wonderful blueprint for raising children, teaching them about salvation, and encouraging them to serve the Lord all from a firmly biblical standpoint.
First, what I do not agree with; In chapter 2 he mentions that some parents are extreme in their efforts to protect their children from sexual material, that if we, as parents, do not allow our kids some sort of knowledge of sex, that in their sinful nature will conjure up their own ideas of it. He uses the idea of historical art; that we shouldn't keep them from it, but allow them to see it, as art but using it as an opportunity to teach our children. I am an artist, I am a Christian, I do not agree that nudity in any art, modern or historical, can be considered art. I feel that nudity in historical art is just older forms of pornography. I do agree that children need to be informed about sex, body parts and their functions, but allowing them to gaze at naked people in a painting so that I can seize the opportunity to enlighten my children is not the way I am going to approach that subject. I would not allow a movie with any nudity in my home, nor will I allow art with nudity.Read more ›
