Growing up in a home that some would characterize as abusive, I was reluctant to use the rod before reading this book. Ray helped me see that it can be used in a loving disciplinary way that actually prevents abuse because its use is not based on my emotions but on the child's disobedience to God. And just like when we sin, that presents a wonderful opportunity to teach our children from before they can even talk, how glorious is it that Jesus lived an obedient life in our place and then suffered the punishment we deserve so that we could be in a right relationship with Him.
Our four children are very close in age— oldest was 5 when the youngest was born. We didn't do it perfectly, and THE most important thing is prayer. But we found that the more consistently we implemented Ray's practical disciplinary guidelines, the less we spanked, and by the time they were 7 or 8, we almost never needed to spank.
The other TREASURE in this book is the topical Scripture reference in the back that helps you teach your child that ultimately it's about obedience to God.
Closeness means less correction, and correction is not punishment, as the author makes abundantly clear.
This book helped me many years ago, and now is helping my son with his son. Loving correction and boundary setting produces
safe and happy children.
