Raising Arizona (or NC)

Parenting is a huge deal. I have read lots of books several were really good and seemed to have a good sensible approach. Making Children Mind without Losing Yours is good. I also liked The Keys to your Child's Heart. The Wonder Weeks are intriguing and BabyWise has some good points.

However the best parenting books I have found are Shepherding a Child's Heart and Don't Make Me Count to Three. These books reject manipulation for the purpose of immediate behavior. Both books emphasize the need for discipline to mirror the Gospel. I love both. Shepherding gives you the theological approach and Don't Make Me gives the practical, day-to-day application.
