I’d like to recommend Parenting with Purpose – 12 Biblical Traits to Prepare Kids for Life by Margaret Buchanan
Name of publisher: Baker Books
About the Book:
Parenting with Purpose gives parents practical, as well as new and fun ways to apply biblical principles to raising children. Buchanan uses the character traits the New Testament recommends for church leaders as the basis of the study. She encourages parents to focus on developing true character in their children rather than simply controlling external behaviour. She offers helpful suggestions including tips under such headings as, “Help! My child is lying,” “Expanding your family’s hospitality horizons” and “When children hit.”
