For the Love of Discipline: When the Gospel Meets Tantrums and Time-OutsISBN: 9781629953571
NO PARENT ENJOYS DISCIPLINING . . . but we know it's important, so we grit our teeth and make it happen! . . .
Right? Or can it be more than something we just "put up with"?
Sara Wallace, a mother of five, brings you a personal, frank account of her own journey with discipline-and introduces an entirely new way to look at it. Not as something we do to our children, but as something we do for them - not as a necessary evil, but as a beautiful privilege!
We can be glad when our children disobey while still in our care-they are showing us where they need to be strengthened and encouraged, giving us a chance to shape their hearts.
Would you like to feel equipped, and excited, to discipline? Here are practical tools, specific skills, a solid gospel foundation, and specific day-by-day things you can say and do to make disciplining your children intentional and consistent.
Sara Wallace is author of the Bible study The Gospel-Centered Mom and has written articles for the Gospel Coalition and RELEVANT magazine. She and her husband have five sons.
