What the Bible Says About Child Training is the title of a bestselling Christian book (250,000+ copies) and of a seminar nominated "Best Film Series" by the Christian Film Distributors in 1981. This material is unique in that the subject is handled solely from the Biblical viewpoint. The author accepts the Bible as absolute truth and as infinitely superior to any human system of thinking. There has been no attempt to modify God's word to make it compatible with human philosophies, psychology, sociology, religious views, or public opinion.
What the Bible Says About Child Training has been accepted by many Bible-believing churches as the standard text on child training since 1980. It has now been translated into seven foreign languages. This is a study designed to help parents to better understand their role and to reveal the mechanics for successfully raising children. To accomplish these ends this book will carefully define parental accountability, authority, and responsibility. It also describes the nature of a child and explains his Biblically-defined stages of development. With these principles firmly established, the book will present the Biblical system for training children.
This system is divided into two distinct phases, controlling and teaching. The control phase is the establishment of the parents' right of rulership over the will of the child. When parents can control their children, they have laid the necessary foundation for the fulfillment of the Biblical commandment for children to obey their parents. The teaching phase can only be accomplished by parents who have first trained their children to obey. This is because, before a child will receive the instructions of his parents, he must first respect their word; and before he will respect their word, he must first become obedient.

From the Publisher:

The following comments by the author are not intended to help sell his book, merely to give his opinion as to why this particular book has such complete opposite for and against reviews.

From the Author:

You will readily see that the reviews on this book are extremely polarized between those who LOVE the book (5 stars) because it is faithful to the Bible and those who HATE it for the same reason. This should come as no surprise since Christ warned Christians that they should: "Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ." (Colossians 2:8)

Those who follow God's Word are warned in 1 John 3:13: "Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you." Those who reject God's Word speak from their knowledge of the world philosophies (psychology and false religion) because: "They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error." (1 John 4:5-6)

Of course, some emotional or untaught Christians may also be deceived by these false philosophies and are thus warned in Colossians 2:8 to: "Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ." The consequences for these believers is graphically described in 2 Peter 2:18-22.
