Christian parents are sure of one thing--they must discipline their children. Ask them to definediscipline,however, and you will find little agreement. Many parenting experts support a strict, "hands-on" approach--usually in the form of spankings. Other believers think a permissive, "hands-off" is the best way to demonstrate love. Caught between these extremes, well-meaning parents feel torn and even more confused about what the Bible really says on the subject. Is there a better way to lovingly train and guide our kids?Yes,says author Clay Clarkson, and inHeartfelt Disciplinehe offers a long-awaited, biblical discipline solution that is caring and effective--one that leaves parents feeling confident and guiltless, not saddened or conflicted. At last, here is a faith-directed approach to discipline that spares the rod butdoesn'tspoil the children. Through biblical advice, answers to commonly asked questions, and positive encouragement, Clay Clarkson presents a new, biblical model of discipline--one that allows parents to embrace a completely new way of thinking about childhood discipline, renew their relationships with their children, and transform the dynamics of their family life.
