Parenting by the Book: Biblical Wisdom for Raising Your Child

by: John Rosemond
Ave. Rating: 4.16
Pages: 288
Year Published: 2007
View on Goodreads
"I promised myself on New Years that I would finish this book before I read any more fiction. Whew, it was a slog! Not because it's uninteresting or slow, I just do NOT like reading nonfiction. It's like work.

That being said, this book is fantastic- I'd say a must-read for parents or soon-to-be-parents. I have an 18 month old and I feel so much liberation and purpose after reading this. I have so often been confused and exasperated and truly exhausted in my parenting. This book shows you how to cut through the noise and focus on the principles and parenting world-view of Scripture. I honestly think I've been making parenting too hard. I appreciate that the book has not just big-picture ideas but TONS of practical, every day wisdom.

I only give 4 stars because I had so much trouble getting through it. Again, not the fault of the content."
