Excellent book

 on February 10, 2014
By Scott C. Thomson
This book really spoke to me. It is written with most examples featuring young children, but I found I could easily apply the principles to my family of older children. The practical reminders to focus on the heart, rather than the behaviors were well-reasoned and widely applicable. Now I just have to brand them onto my mind and heart!

Excellent book. I found it really helped me to refocus on the priorities in my parenting. The odd thing is, I think this is what most parents know at heart and how they want to parent. Then we become parents and find reality confusing especially amidst all of the “good opinions” of other people.

So often we’re concerned with our child’s behavior and focus on the immediate correction instead of the source. This book is so good at making you take a step back and try to discern the heart of the child…and even the hearts of those around you. You’ll be amazed at how you change your response to different situations.

very helpful for anybody wanting to avoid “behaviorism” and address issues that begin in a child’s heart ~ and manifest themselves through words, actions and behavior!
