You may want to order the book, Shepherding a Child's Heart, and then the Parent's Handbook shown on this webpage as a follow-up.
The world is full of terrible parenting advice from so called experts, and full of children 'abused and confused' by overly permissive parents. In some families it seems that it is the children who discipline the parents, and many parents wind up, in fact, training their children to ignore them! Pity the child who has never been rebuked when willfully wrong and defiant.
I found Shepherding a Child's Heart to be a well written, thoughtful, and a sound biblically-based guide. Mr. Tripp emphasizes the importance of going beyond disciplining just for external behavior, noting that all follows from the condition of the heart. The book was recommended to me by a wonderful parent whose opinion I respect, and it gave me a set of foundation principles for parenting. Beautifully written as well.
For those who think that spanking and hitting are the same thing, drop this book and take some time to consider the association between the quality of previous generations and their focus on training up children. Letting your child do whatever they want (freedom beyond their understanding) is not loving them or helping them grow.
