When our multigenerational home grew to include five foster children five years old and younger in just a matter of months, we knew that we needed help coordinating the chaos. We wanted our children to begin to view God as He is, but we knew we were not only working against culture and sin in these little guys, but also against sin in our hearts. What a blessing it was to our souls to encounter For the Love of Discipline: When the Gospel Meets Tantrums and Time-Outs.
But the book doesn’t conclude with lofty pie-in-the-sky objectives. The author Sara Wallace, mom of 5 boys, gives us a boatload of down-to-earth tools, from what to do when your child rejects your authority and God’s authority, to how to shepherd the unruly child and not just make him stop screaming. Plus, she includes how to set up a daily schedule and why it is essential; what the difference is between a reward and a bribe; how to handle sibling fights; how to set realistic expectations; and what it looks like to do follow-through. Very practical and helpful, and a quick and easy read, For the Love of Discipline is for parents concerned about Satan’s goal to wreak havoc on their children’s faith. Our children are too young or too foolish to fight for themselves, so we will have to do battle for them. This book will show you how.

This was free for me with a previous purchase and I have enjoyed it very much!
Free book for us. I enjoyed Reading it.
So, I have been very lax about disciplining my 11-year-old daughter and it is staring to become evident. I was very excited to read this book and get some tips, but it really is geared to younger children. I certainly agree with some of the suggestions, but implementing them all at once is not feasible. Many of the suggestions are geared to those with more than one child. This book is also tied to the author's interpretation of biblical principles. This book was not very helpful for me, but I do believe it would be helpful for new parents wanting to set up a plan before there are so many misbehavior problems.
For a free book, I've greatly enjoyed it. It came at a time when I really needed something of the such t read.
Great read! Passing it on to a friend now.
