HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDAnother awesome book on Gospel Centred Parenting This book is a followup to Shepherding a Child s Heart , however this book focuses in on formative instruction.The extract below from the book explains why this is so important How critical is it to provide your children with a worldview that gives them a framework to understand your instruction and discipline You may be surprised that this book is titled Instructing a Child s Heart You may ask, Why not title the book Instructing [...]
Read for my Family Discipleship class This book helps parents to understand why children behave the way they do and offers some practical biblical solutions for steering them back in the right direction.
This book offers a good reminder that even if one s children are extremely obedient, if they have not also been taught to continually evaluate their own motivations and heart conditions, the main parenting job has not been completed A danger of Christian parenting is that children may learn to play by the many rules imposed upon them and never learn that they are in need of grace and forgiveness throughout their lives Teaching them to understand how God wants to change their hearts, and not just [...]
this book truly was a pleasure to read, and I think that should be read by any parents seeking to lead their children in biblical instructions in the fear of the lordere is so much simple practical advice that is absolutely priceless I read shepherding a child s heart several years ago nm considering we doing it again This book is a fantastic companion to that book it is full of biblical truth.
Along the lines of shepherding a child s heart So if you ve read SACH then you can give this one a miss It s supposed to be practical which just read as narrow for me I like gracious books which give parents freedom in putting the theories into practice The Tripp methods may not work for all.
Borrowed this book from a friend It was also great I am purchasing this book so my husband can read it when he is done with Shepherding a Child s Heart.
Generally helpful, but overly wordy at times and certainly inferior to Shepherding a Child s Heart It s a decent read with some helpful anecdotes but it would not be one of my top choices.
I d probably put this book somewhere between 3.5 and 4 stars if that s possible There was a lot of wonderful advice in this book and not just for parenting but for life as a believer In order to instruct a child s heart according to the scripture and for the glory of God we, as parents, need to first look at our own lives and our own walk with Christ The Tripps encourage parents in their own walk and how that will then flesh itself out in our parenting This was helpful and encouraging The only r [...]
This is by far the best parenting book I have read Far from mere parenting principles and directives, Tedd and Margy Tripp focus on reaching not only the mind of a child but the heart Instead on focusing on behavior modification, the Tripps explain the need to instruct children in who they are and their need for the grace of God found in the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ This book is for parents, grand parents, pastors, counselors, and anyone else who desires to grow in Christ and help others [...]
Lots of good stuff in here.
Definitely going to refer back to this one So many gems.
This is one of the best books on parenting around The book s primary focus is on formative instruction and teaching our children God s ways throughout all of life They emphasize that only instructing our children when we are disciplining them will cause our children to ignore our instruction, harden their hearts, and lead to rebellion.This is hard work for sure, and reinforces the idea that parenting is hard work but of course, is there anything worth doing that isn t hard Another good emphasis [...]
I found this book very helpful and challenging Another winner from the Tripps, right in line with Shepherding a Child s Heart This book gave me lots of practical help for how to make the most of daily life with my children in order to give them a framework in which to interpret life.In other words, the book is all about how to talk about the Lord with your kids all the time What most struck me is how God has built the principle of sowing and reaping into the world, and we should maximize on that [...]
This was a good book Like it s predecessor, Shepherding a Child s Heart, this book gives some really helpful advice for instructing the heart of a child, rather than modifying behavior I love how Tedd Tripp focuses on the gospel and raising up kids to understand the motivations in the heart I wasn t as fond of this one as their other work, but that was mostly because I found the formatting and the text on the pages a little distracting It didn t necessarily make it easy to read The content of th [...]
I only have preschoolers in my house, but the perspective in this book is so very timely and counters the habits my husband and I have started forming based on what we hear other parents recommend to us This book makes distinction between behavioristic use of rewards results and a gospel centered use of consequences to train children The book also really complements the Shepherding a Child s Heart book through its focus on teaching children s hearts and not manipulating outward behaviors The las [...]
Finally finished after picking up, reading, putting down, skimming what I read before and remembering why it was so good, and then continuing many, many times A great follow up to Shepherding a Child s Heart Felt like it spoke right to my stage but likely very helpful in other child rearing stages, too Great resource as I move out of the toddler discipline focused stage and into the formative instruction worldview stage with discipline still mixed in Convicting and challenging but encouraging an [...]
From out of our hearts, flows either sin or goodness Our children s hearts need to be instructed in goodness during their formative years Teach them to examine their own hearts against the formative instruction from God s Word that they have received I like the idea of examining actions as a symptom of the heart issues The heart is the root of the behavior Good practical examples of sample conversations included No lecturing the child but listening and questioning as a fellow sinner who also str [...]
Wow I had read Shepherding a Child s Heart a number of years ago, but at that point had just one two year old, and had a very idealistic view of parenting Now that we have three boys, this next Tripp book has been very timely Idealism has been replaced by realism, as I struggle to be a Deuteronomy 6 4 9 Ephesians 6 4 Colossians 3 21 father This book gives Gospel centered principles on parenting Extremely helpful
Fantastic practical guide for raising children It points first at us as parents and what our relationship with Christ looks like and how that can be passed down to our children Very challenging and humbling Makes me feel like I m failing my children but that is good I need to turn to Christ in my parenting It s good for me to know I fall VERY short of what God wants me to do Highly recommend this book
This is a sequel to Shepherding a Child s Heart, targeting the 7 13 year old It was a little frustrating in that of the book was background and worldview, with the last being practical But that was also good The parent has to have, live and breathe faith in the Lord Jesus before any conversational method will be effective Some keys are guiding conversations, asking the right questions, and giving possible options for what s going on inside them to draw out the heart of your child.
When your children are young read Tripp s first book Shepherding a Child s Heart to get a big picture of your parenting philosophy, but then when they get older and complicated the average age amongst our five kids is 10 right now, read this book Instructing a Child s Heart to help guide where the rubber meets the road in your journey of gospel centered parenting I found this book at exactly the time we needed it and I have been so blessed and encouraged
As a follow up to Shepherding A Childs Heart, this book covers the importance of and how to build a Biblical foundation in your children Honestly, even though it was a very good book and full of Truth was a bit intimidating I found myself often thinking of how there is no way I could possibly live up to this standard of parenting But then, that drives me back to my dependence on Christ, which is ultimately most importantd the book reinforces that as well.
Get this book Useful for parenting children of all ages The chapters Authority is God s Plan, Getting to the Heart of Behavior, Giving Children a vision of God s Glory, and Communication really stood out to me This pared with Shepherding A Child s Heart and Don t Make Me Count to Three would make a great biblical foundational understanding of parenting.
Excellent presentation of how we should instruct our children in a Godly way The authors present that we should view our children s outward behavior as a representation of their what is in their heart I encourage every parent to read this book as its foundation is based on the Word.
Another excellent book on parenting from Tedd Tripp Makes an excellent companion to his Shepherding a Child s Heart, this time focusing on the aspect of parenting that is communication with the child A book I will no doubt return to many times in the years ahead
Pretty standard by Tripp standards, which is excellent by most other standards Only 3 stars because it pretty much recycles material from other talks books but does offer boots on the ground helps than earlier stuff Better for the 7 13s probably.
Although I felt overwhelmed, I do believe it gave wonderful insight into raising children in a Christian home and modeling that way for them Thankfully I have Come to Christ each day knowing that you can do all things through him who gives you strength to get me through.
The sequel to Shepherding a Child s Heart has some review, but gives a bit practical application, on using these truths in one s home This book gets down the nitty gritty in a slightly different way then the first Both are great books.
Game changing.Packed with wisdom.I took pages and pages of notes.The danger of raising children with the goal of behavior management is that it just might work But what is the end result Pharisees.This book goes deeper.
This book along with Shepherding a Child s heart are very valuable resources for Christian parents I highly recommend this book to parents who are concerned with raising their children in a gospel centered way.
