Publisher's Summary

Picture respectful, responsible, obedient children who entertain themselves without television or video games, do their own homework, and have impeccable manners. A pie-in-the-sky fantasy? Not so, says family psychologist and best-selling author John Rosemond. Any parent who so desires can grow children who fit that description - happy, emotionally healthy children who honor their parents and their families with good behavior and do their best in school.

In the 1960s, American parents stopped listening to their elders when it came to child rearing and began listening instead to professional experts. Since then, raising children has become fraught with anxiety, stress, and frustration. The solution, says John, lies in raising children according to biblical principles, the same principles that guided parents successfully for hundreds of years. They worked then, and they still work now!

Through his nationally syndicated newspaper column and 11 books, John has been helping families raise happy, well-behaved children for more than 30 years. In Parenting by the Book, which John describes as both a "mission and a ministry," he brings parents back to the uncomplicated basics.

great advice akwardly delivered.

He's not wrong in his perspective of parenting today and has great suggestions for improvement to bring greater peace into your home and parenting but his delivery is often unnecessarily rude and off-putting.
