The Greatest Book Written on Raising Children 17 Sept. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
As a pastor, and a father of four, I have always hoped for 1 book, definitive and courageous, to give out to families in desperate need of guidance for their family. I needed a book to cover the hard facts, without compromise... This is that one book. Every pastor should own this book, for the good of his family, and the good of his flock. In the Christian home, teenage rebellion, although common, is not normal. It is not acceptable. It does not have to be this way.

The best Biblical book on child rearing I have ever read! 17 May 2000
By bimshiregal - Published on
Format: Paperback
I could not stop reading this wonderful book, it is ballanced, and Biblical. I love the positive approach and the emphasis on loving children, and creating a pleasant atmosphere in the home.
I have recommended this book to everyone I know who has children, and I highly recommend it to readers

Another home run ... 1 Mar. 2010
By Gary Davison - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Like Shepherding a Child's Heart, this book made an impact in the way I parent my children. I will be referencing it for many years to come. I listened to Doug's Loving Little One's sermon series at about the same time I started this book and came away from that blessed and edified as well. I think what I got most from the sermons, or at least what I keep hearing in my head right now is "remember their frames" and what I got from the book is, like all of Doug's material, we (parents) must ground everything we do, specifically child-rearing, in our understanding of Scripture and also that we need to strive to teach our children to "love the standard, vs. conforming to it." I was particularly helped by the distinction of "house-rules" vs "God's rules," and how we should distinguish those in our homes. The chapters on discipline were very helpful as well. All-in-all, a must read for Christian parents in my opinion. I used to think that the Tripp book was the be-all, end-all, it now has a companion.

Parenting with hope 24 Aug. 2003
By Jeffrey - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a wonderful treatise on the scriptural foundation for hope in parenting and the heavy call that God puts on us as parents to fulfill His promises in our family. It does not turn a blind eye to the choices our children may make as they grow older. But our culture has turned so far away from the providence of God that we mistakenly believe that hope is only in the individual choices each of us make and in those our children make. This book is a corrective to that notion, centering us back on the hope that God has placed the solitary in families. We are not alone. Our children are not alone. And so they have a gift of spiritual growth that they would not have if they were raised in heathen homes.
I recommend this book to all parents looking for guidance as to the foundation of hope upon which they parent their children. I believe that in our culture of blind humanistic optimism and individualistic Christian pessimism, this is an important topic. [...]

Sound, Bible based book on parenting. 5 May 2013
By N. Cheser - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a parent of 3, now adult children. Because of the distance between where we lived and where our oldest lived we have not been as involved in our 4 older (now ages 8-14 yrs) grandchildren’s lives. Our other 2 children and their families live close; 1 right next door to us, the other 45 miles away. Thus, we are much more involved with our younger grandchildren, ages <1yr to 2yrs old. We’re seeking to provide meaningful gifts for this period of their lives as well as reading books ourselves to be better parents and grandparents. We want to be the best grandparents we can be while understanding that our children and their spouses are our grandchildren's parents and as grandparents we are to come along side them and support them as parents.

Standing on the Promises is excellent in that it provides sound parenting advise and is Bible based. It is one of several we will be providing for our children to help and encourage them as they raise their children in a Christ-like manor.

I would recommend it not only for parents, but grandparents as well. I wish I'd had this book when my children were little.
