Publisher's Summary

Everything that parents need to survive and thrive in the 21st century. Marriage, children, and family have been lifelong priorities for Charles Swindoll. Based on his extensive study of both the Old and New Testaments, Chuck has drawn together those timeless insights for building close and rewarding family relationships.

A much needed breathe of fresh air

After struggling for the past few months with raising our 4 older kids (12-18), this book was very encouraging and needed. The author does a great job of breaking down well known scripture regarding parenting and putting it in practical terms. The only problem I had was a few times the audio was seemed to dip (almost silent) for a word or two. I verified it wasn't on my end either with an incoming text or so. Other than that, this is a great tool for parents.

The best parenting book I've ever read!

This book gives you such wisdom regarding parenting applying Christian principles. He doesn't just give you the tools... he helps you apply them. Using real-life situations and Biblical context, he empowers the reader to start parenting effectively no matter what age their children are.
