Good kids aren't just a matter of luck.

Bad kids aren’t, either.

Pastor Michael Brock has counseled families for decades and raised five children of his own. Over the years, he’s found that parents with child trouble usually make the same handful of mistakes. These errors shape the first years of a child’s life—and they have devastating consequences as the child gets older.

The good news is there are practical, biblical ways to avoid them.

This book diagnoses the eight most common failures of parents and offers simple suggestions for how to raise a healthy family, by God’s grace.


What people are saying:

Michael Brock has raised five kids who are all adults now walking with the Lord. He has pastored and mentored many others to help them parent their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. This book is clearly and deeply rooted in God’s grace and truth, His word and gospel. The applications are all practical and proven. You may not agree with every single one. But you will come away from this book more excited and motivated to parent your children with real tangible wisdom. Michael balances joy in the Lord with seriousness about obedience. He shows you how to be both tough and tender, firm yet kind. I highly recommend it. ~ Olan Stubbs, Director of Campus Outreach, Briarwood Presbyterian Church

Practical Application, finally!

The author's introduction says it all - our parental toolbelts are fashioned after the best systematic theology, yet lacking in good tools.
