This book could also be considered a book on what it means to be a Godly man and a Godly woman in general, whether you have children or not. One of the central themes throughout is the importance of modeling behavior for children to follow. How do we teach children to be diligent? We ourselves must practice diligence. How do we teach them to be disciplined? We ourselves must strive to live disciplined lives.
This book is a welcome and refreshing change from so many other culturally-driven books on the topic, which rely on popular psychology rather than the Word of God.
I would recommend this book to young parents, pastors, teenagers, and anyone else who wants to learn more about manhood and womanhood from God's Word.
As a parent, I found it helpful and encouraging. I think all parents (or those who hope to be parents) as well as those interested in learning more about their roles as men/women would benefit by reading this book.
