Occasionally Atlanta Faith and Family likes to pre-view and suggest books that will help our families through the difficulties that each family seems to face on a day to day basis. This one seems to be the jewel of child-rearing.
This book is discounted at the web site; but is available in local bookstores. You may have to order it and wait for arrival if they are out of stock.
Checking with Family Christian Bookstore here in the Atlanta area and the Books-A-Million also in the Atlanta area – their prices are $10.00 and $15.00 respectively. But there are no shipping charges if you pick them up.
You can purchase the book for $8.95 on WND’s web site; and you will have to pay shipping. If you prefer to order by phone, you can call their friendly, Midwestern customer service reps toll-free at 1-800-4WND-COM (1-800-496-3266),
Speaking with the customer service operator, she said that the shipping and handling would be about $5.00 and no tax. She also said they had a good stock on hand.
Joseph Farah of World Net Daily says this is the best book he has ever read on child-rearing.
“Reb Bradley has given Christian parents a wealth of good, practical advice in “Child Training Tips.” I recommend his book to all parents.” – Richard Fugate, Foundation for Biblical Research
“After raising his own six children, and learning many things the hard way, author and pastor Reb Bradley wrote a practical guide to bringing up kids that uses biblical wisdom as its basis.
Among the obstacles Bradley covers are: parental defensiveness, confusing raising children with training them, misunderstanding human depravity and trust in worldly “experts.”
For basic parenting principles … we must look primarily to God’s Word. To look elsewhere guarantees trouble,” Bradley writes.
Every chapter of Child Training Tips includes a list of symptoms which helps to identify behavior problems, and expose trouble spots in parenting.”
Answered are questions like:
- How can a parent tell if they’ve given control of their home to their children?
- How can a child be trained to obey quickly when spoken to calmly and only one time?
- What’s gone wrong when chastisement doesn’t work?
- How can appropriate punishments be determined?
- What are the most subtle signs of rebellion?
- How do parents accidentally train their children to disobey them?
- What can be expected of children at what ages?
- What exactly is “sass” and how can it be stopped?
And many, many more…
WND continues: “Child Training Tips doesn’t just cover child behavioral problems. Bradley also covers common ways parents behave that contribute to their failure in child training. The book ends with “25 Sure Ways to Exasperate Your Children.”
“Most parents are afraid of exasperating their children by being too firm,” writes Bradley, “but most children are exasperated by parents who are not firm consistently.”
For the mere cost of this book and dedication in reading and applying its principles, many years or heartache and burdens could be avoided. As he said, these are principles he wish he had known when his own children were young. This is not just a book to be read casually and cast aside. It is a book that parents will want to refer back to often.
