Other Parenting Books I (Andy) Have Read

  • George Barna: Revolutionary Parenting: What the Research Shows Really Works

    George Barna: Revolutionary Parenting: What the Research Shows Really Works
    This book is the result of interviewing kids in their 20's who turned out well. How did their parents do it? Much of the advice is geared toward parenting teens because this is what the young adults most easily recalled. It is fairly uneven and does not put forth a specific coherent philosophy.

  • Joanne Miller and Scott Turansky: Parenting is Heart Work

    Joanne Miller and Scott Turansky: Parenting is Heart Work
    I tell people that this is the book for trying to make already good kids really good kids. It is like advance parenting. Use Rosemond to get control of your kids. For helping to really shape them in specific character traits, this is a good book.

  • John Rosemond: Parenting by The Book: Biblical Wisdom for Raising Your Child

    John Rosemond: Parenting by The Book: Biblical Wisdom for Raising Your Child
    Rosemond became a Christian about 20 years into his parenting expert career. In this book, he tries to explain how therapeutic "self-esteem" psychology can really be not only be confusing and inconsistent but also turn them into brats. He tries to show how the traditional discipline approach he has always believed in meshes with the Bible. He is somewhat successful. Again, I think Rosemond is great for 1 and 2 year olds and getting control of kids who have gone wild.

  • John Rosemond: The New Six-Point Plan for Raising Happy, Healthy Children

    John Rosemond: The New Six-Point Plan for Raising Happy, Healthy Children
    Rosemond is a big traditional discipline guy. I think his style particularly appeals to fathers. I think he is also good if you are letting your children run your entire world. He straightens you out. But you should definitely also read other parenting books besides Rosemond to get a broader perspective.

  • Tim Stafford: Never Mind the Joneses: Building Core Christian Values in a Way That Fits Your Family

    Tim Stafford: Never Mind the Joneses: Building Core Christian Values in a Way That Fits Your Family
    Stafford is a very theologically astute journalist for Christianity Today. He gives lots of good ideas on parenting. It is topical and does not recommend a specific philosophy. It too is geared more for parenting older kids. As a thinker, I probably have more respect for Stafford than anyone else but the book does not carry through a powerful argument. Still, it is great for ideas from someone who I admire as a thinker, parent and a Christian.
