Heartfelt Discipline: Following God's Path of Life to the Heart of Your Child
Trying to understand what God really says about childhood discipline can be like putting together a puzzle, but the pieces just don't all seem to fit. For two generations conservative Christians have rejected the idea of a permissive "hands off" discipline and adopted a strict "hands on" discipline taught by many well-known Christian parenting authorities. In Heartfelt Discipline, Clay Clarkson advocates a different biblical model--a relational "hands around" discipline. If you have young children and are beginning to try to solve the discipline puzzle for your family, start with this book.

You'll see how all the biblical pieces fit together and make sense, and put you on the path to your child's heart.
