Review:

For many Christian parents, the responsibility of spiritual leadership in the home can be daunting. Never fear! Focus on the Family's Parent's Guide to the Spiritual Growth of Children outlines the basics of successful Christian parenting for parents with children ages 12 and under. Each of the book's three levels provide assistance and guidance: Level One addresses the apprehensiveness of some parents who feel unequipped to initiate spiritual leadership. By giving an overview of the "what, why, and how" of spiritual training, parents will feel confident and prepared. Level Two--"How To Pass On Your Spiritual Legacy"--focuses on pinpointing the character and interests of your particular family. From helping the parent identify the personality types of their children, to explaining what can be expected from them at a particular age, ideas and methods are given for making daily life a spiritual experience that honors the Lord.

Level Three is meant to be a resource that parents can refer to throughout the years as their children grow. Over 100 pages are dedicated to identifying how to teach the essentials to children in the four specific age groups (0-4, 5-6, 7-9, and 9-12 years old). Topics such as "Jesus has always been with God and is God" are followed by tips on how to creatively assist in your child's learning. While attempting to remain nondenominational, theological questions that children may ask are answered, and an entire reference section gives ideas for further reading both parents and children. While there is no formula to ensure that your child will grow up to love the Lord, parents can exemplify spiritual leadership by saturating their children in the truth of the Bible through the material provided here by Focus on the Family. --Jill Heatherly
