Ann Benton used to run parenting skills classes in local schools. People kept saying "This is great, where do you get this stuff?" She came clean "Actually, it's from the Bible."

This book contains the wisdom distilled from Ann's popular seminars on parenting the next generation. She uses a 'God's eye view' of what we are really like in order to help people who are seeking to be responsible parents in an increasingly child-centred society.

You will learn six key concepts: accept, beware, communicate, discipline, evaluate and fear the Lord. These are applied with understanding and sensitivity.

At last - a parenting book with authority and easy to understand applications! Each short, punchy chapter is rounded off with thought-provoking questions that will make you want to wake them up and try some new ideas!

A welcome and stimulating addition to contemporary literature on parenting. Ann's book helps parents to take the long view of parenting - What are we doing? We are growing adults! In taking this approach we are encouraged to look at the consequences of unhelpful practices or strategies that are all too common today.

What a refreshing change to read Ann Benton's spiritual and commonsense perspective on the basic principles of Godly parenting. Her applications are relevant and helpful and her consistent reference to appropriate Bible verses gives real authority to her advice. Having read the book I feel not only inspired, but also excited about my role in building a God - centred home.
