9780802431486: The 10 Commandments of Parenting: The Do's and Don'ts for Raising Great Kids

"Thou shalt not be... a passive parent!"

New moms and dads always have the same reaction: "I had no idea it would be this hard!" But you can make it a little easier—and a lot more rewarding—simply by following The 10 Commandments of Parenting.

If you're feeling overwhelmed by it all, if your kids are headed in the wrong direction, or you just need a refresher of what matters most, this could be the turning point you've been praying for. And if you're a brand new parent, you'll thank God for an opportunity to build your child's character on solid ground.

In words that are clear, simple, and sometimes humorous, Ed Young draws from decades of counseling and raising his own children to help you create a biblical foundation for life's greatest challenge and most important calling.

About the Author:

ED YOUNG has been the pastor of 32,000-member Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, since 1978 and is also a trustee of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and Houston Baptist University. A former president of the Southern Baptist Convention, Ed is the author of many books including The Ten Commandments of Marriage and The Ten Commandments of Parenting, and ministers through the international television and radio broadcasts of Winning Walk. He and his wife, Jo Beth, have three adult sons and seven grandchildren and reside in Houston.

From Publishers Weekly:

Megachurch pastor and author of "The Ten Commandments of Marriage," Young uses the decalogue approach once again with this parenting manual, which seems directed to new parents or those with young children. The book is generously laced with Scripture (including the "thou shalt" and "thou shalt not" chapter titles), and its advice will be most appreciated by an evangelical Christian audience. His tone manages to be humble (he says it's a miracle that his own three sons turned out to be "solid Christian husbands and parents," given the mistakes that he made as their father), while full of biblical certainty. Most of the commandments are predictable, the stuff of hundreds of other parenting guides: be loving but firm, discipline appropriately, spend time with your children and don't be a passive parent. But Young devotes an entire chapter to the importance of teaching children about sex, a refreshingly candid approach for an evangelical pastor. The book is also extremely easy to read, with frequent subheadings and numerous anecdotes.
