Book Overview

'Shepherding a Child's Heart' is about how to speak to the heart of your child. The things your child does and says flow from the heart. Luke 6:45 puts it this way: ]¬‚¬]out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. Written for parents with children of any age, this insightful book provides perspectives and procedures for shepherding your child's heart into the paths of life.

In this revised edition, Dr. Tedd Tripp not only draws on his thirty years experience as a pastor, counselor, school administrator, and father, but he also shares insights gained in many years of teaching this material in conferences worldwide, providing more valuable help for parents.

   Good parenting book
The price of the book was more affordable than the paperback edition. There is a parenting study going on at the church. The group has had some great discussions and it has a lot of good ideas.
   So needed for today's parents!
Tedd Tripp writes from a Christian heritage perspective, which is uncommon for many of today's parents. I read this book to think through issues and help guide my children and grandsons. It is an excellent overview of a parents goals with their children. I will give it as a gift at all baby showers.
   Great information!
Great book! I learned a lot about raising my children and not losing them when they're grown up.
It was disgusting. I don't know why I bought this book. He is self absorbed and abusive. I didn't know that the book centered around the idea that you should hit your child and spank them if you want to train them up. It was unbelievable. Jesus, the gentle parent is a REAL Christian parenting book. Tedd Tripp has people who have purchased this book. I'm disgusted.
   Do your research spanking is ineffective and damaging
It's awful. I bought this book immediately after it was recommended to me by someone at the church. It was silly of me. I was shocked when I opened the book, it was a manual on how to beat my child. No thank you. I am well aware of the research that says that is damaging to a child and ineffective. The book is going to Amazon.
   Parenting book for serious Christ followers
The author encourages parents not to lower standards. I have never thought about it before, but it is critical. If parents don't encourage them to live by example on how to daily receive grace and obtain strength from the spirit, they end up raising self-sufficient people that don't see or experience a need for the Gospel. Childhood. The book will challenge parents with emotional or spiritual habits.
   Run away as fast as you can from this book
How to discipline a child is garbage and twisted. I'm sorry, but telling my son that God wants me to spank him is opening a flood gate of resentment towards God. If I choose disobedience as an adult, God doesn't spank me. I don't get to enjoy His blessings and I miss out on intimacy with him. I was able to go on and on. I was looking for another book that would give me more examples on how to discipline my child, but this is not one of them.
   Some good information
There are good points. It's good to get you thinking, but I don't fully support it all. I have not finished the entire book.
   Some good insights on communication, but otherwise unbiblical and disappointing
Tedd Tripp has a lot of good points about communication with your child going beyond warnings and scolds, about listening to your child and learning about his heart, but he spends an inordinate amount of time trying to give a convincing biblical basis for his belief in spanking. He says in the book that parents have to spank their kids or they will disobey God. He has taken bible passages out of context, and I have never read that in the bible. I was very disappointed when I read this biblical parenting advice. He grossly misinteprets the bible passages to justify his own views.
   Great book with a couple of caveats
The book focuses on the child's heart and not just on behavior change. The emphasis on the biblical need for spanking is not necessary. He doesn't provide a biblical basis for the need for physical punishment. Discipline, even physical, is needed in the Bible. The rest of the book is good.
