For the Love of Discipline
When the Gospel Meets Tantrums and Time-Outs
No parent enjoys disciplining … we know it’s important, so we grit our teeth and make it happen!
But can this necessity become more than just something we “put up with”?
Sara Wallace, a mother of five, brings you a personal, frank account of her own journey with discipline—and introduces an entirely new way to look at it. Not as something we do to our children, but as something we do for them . . . not as a necessary evil, but as a beautiful privilege!
We can be glad when our children disobey while still in our care—they are showing us where they need to be strengthened and encouraged, giving us a chance to shape their hearts.
Would you like to feel equipped, and excited, to discipline? Here are practical tools, specific skills, a solid gospel foundation, and specific day-by-day things you can say and do to make disciplining your children intentional and consistent.
