Publisher's Summary

In the Garden of Eden, there was only one "No". Everything else was "Yes". 

In this short audiobook on childrearing, Douglas Wilson points out that we have a Father who delights in us and makes it easy for us to love and obey him. If that is the kind of Father we have, shouldn't we earthly parents do the same? Wilson explains how parents should not just try to get their kids to obey a set of rules or to make their house so fun that following the rules is always easy. Instead, he calls for parents to instill in their kids a love for God and His standards that will serve them well all their days.

This audiobook also features an appendix in which Doug and his wife Nancy answer various parents' questions about various applications of the principles discussed in this audiobook.

Great Christian insight

This book was great. It had me thanking God for the wisdom he has given me in what I had been doing right and repenting of things I must change.

For parents w/ kids of all ages!

This book offers the most practical advice on parenting I have ever heard. It is simple, realistic, and, most importantly, biblical. I highly recommend parents to read or listen to this book.
