Most scholars agree that there is no one right way to parent; however, they do agree that there are many wrong ways. So it seems important to tackle this parenting topic from a Christian perspective because of the many mothers and fathers who are crying for help—what to do with an aggressive four-year-old, a distractible eight-year-old, an unmotivated adolescent, and on and on and on.
The ABCs to Z of Godly Parenting, an inspirational little parenting book written by Dr. Beverly J. Bond-Cox captures the basics of effective parenting from her own experiences on parenting and clinical psychology and education. Much of what is included within this book is her philosophy about how to define oneself in his/her role as parent; the idea is that right thinking should, in turn, guide right actions with regards to the individual child.
This book was written across many days and nights as were the two previous books of Dr. Bond-Cox.Unlike the other two books, however, this book began during the parenting years of her and her husband’s four children and represents the congealment of wisdom across the years based on her day-to-day experiences as a mother of four. It is the how-to book that places God at the center of parenting.
At the heart of this written work is Dr. Bond-Cox’s view of parenting as a sacred duty that must be taken seriously and done intentionally. She hopes that the readers, regardless of faith tradition, will find Godly wisdoms within the pages of this book. Most of all, she hopes to convey the message that parenting is hard work with no short-cuts. It is not one thing; rather, it is multifaceted. It requires full commitment and energy. Her greatest hope is that parents will work on getting-it-right before it’s too late.
The ABCs to Z of Godly Parenting clearly emphasizes the basics. Readers may have already subscribed to many of the principles presented in this book but it may offer review material as well as introduction to new ideas. Dr. Bond-Cox believes that this book is an answer to a Holy Spirit mission and it is necessary for readers to be prayerful and open to the flow of things to be learned within its pages.
