Are you looking for some positive parenting tips? I would love to share my favorite books on this topic and give your the tools to helping you raise Christians through positive parenting.
Here are my favorite positive parentings books:
Nothing can compare to the wisdom found in the Holy scriptures. My favorite part of the Bible for positive parenting is Proverbs. I have always started reading this to my children daily, one chapter at a time. Then as they began to read, they would read one chapter a day for years in a row. I also had them memorize scriptures that would help them from an early age. This helps them get scripture into their heart, not just their head.
Hints on Child Training by H. Clay Trumbull was one of my first parenting books that I have ever read and is my favorite to this day. Practical tips that will empower you to make the most of every day issues that arise. You will really feel that you will get this think called positive parenting, while capturing the heart of your child.
Shepherding a Child' Heart
Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp is very close to the top of my favorite list. This book really gives you a call to consider the tender heart of your children, drawing them to God and shepherding them through their childhood in preparation for adulthood and a Christian life. You won't be disappointed!
The Duties of Parents
The Duties of Parents (Classics of Reformed Spirituality) by Jacobus Koelman is a book full of Biblical scriptures and call to the spiritual side of parenting. A perfect book for a Bible study on parenting.

The Mother at Home by John Abbott is based on the scripture in Proverbs 31:27 “She looketh to the ways of her household..” and is full of practical and Biblical advice for mothers looking to raise their children in the ways of the Lord. Although a small book it is crocked full of goodness.
