The Christian Parenting Handbook By Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller

 50 Heart-Based Strategies for All the Stages of Your Child's Life. This book is a good read for any parent with a child of any age, from very young to older.  The authors take a "heart" approach, and the short 50 chapters, each one only 2 or 3 pages long,  one for each principle, are easy to read.  It is a grace-based, heart-based, Bible based framework to parenting. From the founders of the National Center for Biblical Parenting and biblicalparenting.info and biblicalparentinguniverstiy.com.
How are we to raise our children in today's society with so much advice coming at us from so many places?  The authors encourage us to "develop your own Biblical philosophy of parenting and use it to filter the many ideas that come your way."
There is a helpful index to find subjects addressed.    There are free email parenting tips by writing to parent@biblicalparenting.org.  Also, eight additional books are available to help parents through every stage of a child's development.  More information at takethefamilychallenge.com.
I would recommend this book to parents of children of any age, as any parent can use the advice given.  Published by Thomas Nelson, I have been provided a review copy at no charge.
