Train your child in the way he or she should go, moment-by-moment with God's Word.
Parenting with Scripture is an easy-to-use topical resource for parents who want to make the most of teachable moments with their children. It is a guide to help you train your children in how to think and apply God's Word in the day-to-day.
The 101 alphabetically-arranged, two-page topics address behavior, attitude, emotions, and actions. Examples include forgiveness, humility, anger, and procrastination. Each topic is comprised of Scripture passages, discussion questions, action items, and parenting tips. This revised edition of Parenting with Scripture adds detailed help for parents to quickly identify teachable moments and know what to do when they appear.
"Basically, this title says it all. This book is a parenting guide that uses the Bible as a teaching tool. I found it very interesting and useful. The author, Kara Durbin, goes over some of the ways she has used the Bible, even when her kids were very young, to teach them what the Bible teaches on different topics, not just about right and wrong. Kara even uses a passage from Deuteronomy to explain what teachable moments are; anytime you and your child are together.
What I found the most useful, was the way the book is set up. This is a book you will use on a daily basis if you have kids, long after you have finished reading it. After you read the intro and the teachable moments chapter, Kara lists 15 fabulous verses to memorize, they cover a broad array of topics that you may need/want to use when teaching your kids on a regular day, such as; Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.--EPHESIANS 6:1. Kara even gives some methods to help both you and your kids memorize the scripture verses, breaking it down by age. Kara also talks a bit about praying and how to pray with your children.
But, the best chapter, in my opinion, is the Topics chapter. In this chapter Kara lists almost anything you can think of that you may need to parent a child on, for example, anger, in alphabetical order, like a dictionary. First, she gives the definition of the word, then she lists verses where anger is discussed in the Bible, and lastly she has some discussion questions to use with your kids and a take action part that gives some real life reinforcement activities you can use.
I know that this will be a book that I will use when I have kids. It is a great tool if you want to teach your kids how to interact with the Bible in their daily lives and what the Bible teaches us about almost everything under the sun. I highly recommend this book to parents, Sunday school teachers, or even to teachers at a private school where you can talk about the Bible." Reviewed by Sarah Inserra, Net Galley April 7, 2012
"This book has become indespensible in my house! We have tried for several years to connect God's word to behaviours we exhibit, both good and bad. That means a lot of time looking up verses and a lot of times I say "God tells us in His word......." but I can't remember the exact verse. This book makes it quick and easy to find verses that relate to everything from sharing, to anger, to compassion, to honesty, to so much more! Before you start thinking this is just a compilation of Bible verses, let me fill you in. Each quality includes a definition to begin with so that you and your children really know what the word means. This is especially important for little kids. Then there are several Bible verses that include the quality. This is followed by a few discussion questions and then a Take Action section that encourages you to do something with what you have learned. Then there are parenting tips for both young and older children. This is followed by a listing of any related topics that are also in the book so you can cross reference them.The design of the book lends itself to topical family Bible studies.
