Shaping your children's behavior isn't the most important thing you can do as parent.
Shaping their hearts and minds is!
How many times have you been tempted to judge your own efforts at parenting by how well-behaved your kids are? how quiet they are around other adults? whether they can say their "please and thank-yous"? whether they can achieve high marks in school?
Too often, we as parents are pulled and pushed by the busyness of life. We don't have enough time to think about the impact of the attitudes and thoughts and worldviews that seep into our children's lives through television, the Internet, classroom instruction, and peer groups.
In this well-researched and practical book, Kenneth Boa and John Alan Turner encourage parents to focus on what's most important: preparing our children for the onslaught of competing worldviews by training them to have a consistently Christian view of the world. What's most important is to influence the hearts of our children so that they reflect the attitudes and thoughts of Jesus.
It's a tall order. But, it's a task that Kenneth Boa and John Alan Turner fully equip parents to do with this groundbreaking book: "Hearts and Minds."
