Disciplines of a Godly Family is the most practical book on parenting I have read while remaining biblically faithful.  The book is honest, simple, personal, and useful.  Eighty years of aggregate wisdom are here for you.  It is worth the small investment of time and money to gain such wisdom.  For those who think children unworthy of such, here is my favorite paragraph form the book.

So consider this:  Though one could travel a hundred times the speed of light, past countless yellow-orange stars, to the edge of the galaxy and swoop down to the fiery glow located a few hundred light-years below the plane of the Milky Way, though one could slow to examine the host of hot young stars luminous among the gas and dust, though one could observe, close-up, the proto-stars poised to burst forth from their dusty cocoons, though one could witness a star’s birth, in all one’s stellar journeys one would never see anything equal to the birth and wonder of a human being.  For a tiny baby girl or boy is the apex of God’s creation!  But the greatest wonder of all is that the child is created in the image of God, the Imago Dei.  The child once was not; now, as a created soul, he or she is eternal.  He or she will exist forever.  When the stars of the universe succumb to stellar destruction,  that soul shall still live.
