Discipline that Connects with Your Child's Heart by Jim & Lynne Jackson
Froom the publisher:
Did you know that the way we deal (or don't deal) with our kids' misbehavior shapes their beliefs about themselves, the world, and God? Therefore it's vital to connect with their hearts--not just their minds--amid the daily behavior battles.
With warmth and grace, Jim and Lynne Jackson, founders of Connected Families, offer four tried-and-true keys to handling any behavioral issues with love, truth, and authority. You will learn practical ways to communicate messages of grace and truth, how to discipline in a way that motivates your child, and how to keep your relationship strong, not antagonistic. Discipline is more than just a short-term attempt to modify your child's actions--it's a long-term investment to help them build faith, wisdom, and character for life. When you discover a better path to discipline, you'll find a more well-behaved--and well-believed--kid.
I cannot tell you how excited I was to read this book! I have a book called Parenting with Connection that speaks to foster and adoptive parents, and as I read it I kept seeing how it could apply to all parenting! So when I saw this book, and how many of the principles are the same I was ecstatic.
Being a Christian I was so happy to see these concepts mixed with building faith, wisdom, and character.
This book is not a quick fix book. You can easily implement the things immediately but the results might take a while to show. But I wouldn't be discouraged or give up. Instead, this book is for the long haul and for real character development along with faith and Christian characters.
Through out each chapter there are "My Response" sections that help focus and apply the things being discussed. Also, they have a huge appendix section for specific challenges that are a great resource to add to the book.
I am so thankful Jim and Lynne Jackson wrote this book!
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
