9781857928761: Aren't they Lovely when they're Asleep?: Lessons in unsentimental parenting

Ann Benton used to run parenting skills classes in local schools. People kept saying "This is great, where do you get this stuff?" She came clean "Actually, it's from the Bible."

This book contains the wisdom distilled from Ann's popular seminars on parenting the next generation. She uses a 'God's eye view' of what we are really like in order to help people who are seeking to be responsible parents in an increasingly child-centred society.

You will learn six key concepts: accept, beware, communicate, discipline, evaluate and fear the Lord. These are applied with understanding and sensitivity.

At last - a parenting book with authority and easy to understand applications! Each short, punchy chapter is rounded off with thought-provoking questions that will make you want to wake them up and try some new ideas!

About the Author:

Ann Benton is the wife of John Benton, a church minister, author and magazine editor. John and Ann have developed and run practical Marriage orienting and enrichment seminars to the benefit of numerous couples (and couples to be).

Review:

This little book is a very useful addition the array of Christian literature on the subject of bring up children. (Evangelicals Now)

I would highly recommend this book to parents of children of all ages (it is never too late!) Those who are new parents can have the advantage of applying all this wisdom from the start!. (Evangelical Presbyterian)

This is an immensely helpful book for parents. It is encouraging yet incredibly thought provoking. (CLC Book Review)

Ann Benton brings a wealth of Biblical wisdom, as well as a great deal of sound common sense to this subject. Over the past years I have learned a great deal from Ann's seminars on parenting, and also from her example as a mother. I am delighted that she has written this book, and would commend it warmly, especially to new parents. (Sharon James ~ Conference speaker and author Leamington Spa, England)

A welcome and stimulating addition to contemporary literature on parenting. Ann's book helps parents to take the long view of parenting - What are we doing? We are growing adults! In taking this approach we are encouraged to look at the consequences of unhelpful practices or strategies that are all too common today. (Sheila M. Stephen, counsellor and teacher on parenting skills)

I would highly recommend this book to parents of children of all ages (it is never too late!) Those who are new parents can have the advantage of applying all this wisdom from the start! (Wendy Atkinson Evangelical Press (Jan. ’04))

What a refreshing change to read Ann Benton's spiritual and commonsense perspective on the basic principles of Godly parenting. Her applications are relevant and helpful and her consistent reference to appropriate Bible verses gives real authority to her advice. Having read the book I feel not only inspired, but also excited about my role in building a God - centred home. (Carolyn Lacey FIEC ‘News and Views’ Issue 2 Spring 2005)
