About the Book

Raising children is no easy task. No matter the child, no matter the situation, every parent longs for obedience from their offspring.

God isn’t overbearing when He deals with us, and His example is perfect. There’s no question that kids want truth and love, as well as bonding and boundaries. Because God understands the human condition, He knows we learn best from hands-on experience, Jesus’ example, and the Holy Spirit’s empathetic examination of our hearts. We’re asking you to consider using the same parenting style with your children.

Parenting by Design offers a more relational approach to raising children, relying less on rote obedience and more on walking with your children through their decision-making development.

Forcing children to obey rarely works to build a healthy relationship that allows you to enter into their worlds and understand their decisions. This book will help you parent with grace and love, two key elements in motivating a child to obey.
