Dr. Tedd Tripp has more than 30 years experience as a pastor, school administrator counselor and seminar leader. His seminars and counseling experience has related to family and child issues.

This is an outstanding parenting book. Two previously reviewed books, Parenting With Love and Logic and Have a New Kid by Friday, are based on biblical principles, are eminently practical. They primarily emphasize behavior modification techniques. Tripp takes the whole issue of parenting to another level, emphasizing that our goal in parenting must ultimately appeal to the heart. Whereas the other books deal with “How”, Tripp deals with “Why”. Yes, we want to see our children exhibit appropriate behavior. But even more, we want to bring them to the cross – to see them understand the gospel – to have right behavior for the right reasons, because they love and revere God. In a carefully written, articulate and well-illustrated book, Tripp will help you do just that.

This is a great companion book to those previously reviewed, aimed past our children’s behavior to their spirit.
