Motivate Your Child

About the book {taken from}

We need a parenting revolution!

Most parenting approaches end up encouraging children to ask the wrong questions about life: What’s in it for me? Are you going to pay me for that? What’s the minimum I need to do to get by?

But God’s Word gives us a better way to parent, one that builds strong internal motivation in children. When parents change the way they parent, kids change the way they live. This practical book explores a theology of internal motivation and then gives parents real-life solutions to equip their kids for life.

You’ll learn . . .

• how to parent in ways that build internal motivation so that kids don’t have to rely on you to get things done.

• the four promptings of the conscience and how to coordinate your parenting to take advantage of them.

• ways to energize your spiritual training with fun and creativity.

• how to help children respond to mistakes instead of blaming, defending, or justifying.

The greatest gift you can give your child is strong moral and spiritual development―this book shows you how. Every chapter includes practical examples of families applying the Bible to their current issues.
Join the revolution!

I had the opportunity to read this book. It was sent to me at no charge for my honest feedback. It is the Christian Parent’s guide to raising kids who do what they need to do without being told.

Overall, I don’t care much for parenting books, but when they are Christ-centered as this one is, I do find them enjoyable to read and useful. This book is wonderful. I was excited to be able to review it because I knew that I could take a lot from it. I could really use it on my bookshelf!

There are 2 parts: Part 1 is Moral Development in Children and Part 2 is Spiritual Development in Children. In these parts, there is so much information packed in. It tells you how to teach your children integrity, about being held accountable, compassion and so much more! It is one of those books that you can go back to and refer to and use again and again. A perfect addition to any bookshelf. I highly recommend it. 🙂

  1. It all starts at motivation, I think every child has to find a personal “why” one that resonates with them the most and continue to go back to that each day.

  2. This sounds like a great book! I’m trying to find more ways for my daughter to appreciate what she has and know what hard work is. Perfect way to find out how to do this.
