Reviews - What do customers think about Shepherding A Child's Heart: Leader's Guide?
the right focus for parents. Oct 12, 2009
Kid acting up and embarrasing you? you react so with embarrassment and anger. the child soaks up that mom/dad wants me to behave because that is what they want. everthing becomes about self. child becomes self worshiping.
Children/people are created to worship. Parents either model what it means to worship self or worship god.
Parents need to help the child discover God and discover how to live in worship of God and not self.
the ancillary benefit is that your children will learn to behave because it makes god smile.
Idolatry is the default unless you help them to learn to worship the Creator.
buy this book if your thinking about having kids.
Wonderful bible based book! Feb 28, 2009
My husband and I are reading the book and are so impressed with it. At first, we were concerned about going to any other book than the bible for guidance for our child. However, after the first chapter -NO, the introduction- we were amazed at how God used the author to speak His truth about our duty to discipline (or teach) our children. The book has a beautiful way of revealing scriptures to support teaching your children. It also shows the reader insight into our responsibilities as parents and also sheds light on the child's responsibility to respond (or not to respond, in some cases). In each chapter, we have dove into scripture and decided which areas God was speaking to us. The author does not suggest this book are a parenting manual - but suggests we look in the word to see what God is asking us to change about our view as a parent. We would recommend this book to anyone seeking God's guidance with parenting. It is life-changing!
the way my parent's were raised and most of mine but.... Oct 12, 2008
God tells parents to "Train up" your child...not be their best friend. Ultimately, if you do what He says your children grow up to be better than just a friend. They honor you by being strong, caring individuals that you can count on! The principles in this book are God's demands of parents. It's a tough ongoing job & it's the best you can have if you are willing to work hard! There will always be people who abuse their authority but by doing away with authority we have more abuse...extreme abuse than ever in history! Young parents use this tool...it's the same that was just taught to us by our parents...and you may be as Blessed as my Husband & I are to have 2 "well rounded" happy, reponsible, sucessful ....the list could go on & on....Adult children & 5 beautiful and really ENJOYABLE to be with grandkids!

I would send this book to myself when my kids were infants. Great guidance.
Great guidance for parents Jun 3, 2004
This book has been recommended to me by many people for several years. Now that I have finally read it, I will be recommending it to any parent who wants to raise their children in a Biblical, God-centered way. Tripp is straight forward, honest, and convicting in his assessment of common mistakes we all make with our children, and offers alternatives based on scripture. It encourages one to really think about what we are training our children by how we are training them. It would be a really good book study for a small group, but it also very helpful for an individual to read.
