Default Re: "Parenting" by Paul David Tripp

Generally, he's struck me as a person who cares a lot about building healthy relationships. I wouldn't automatically write it off - he seems to emphasize grace a lot and isn't formulaic. The blurb on his website fits with what else I've seen of his work over the years (which is from a reformed perspective that focuses on the importance of grace in relationships over performance and rules ).

In this life-giving book, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God's plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God—grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents.

Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children's hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy.
I think the last name Tripp throws people because of his brother's teachings on spanking. But Paul is much more of a counselor at heart, and it shows in his writings.
Here's one blog post about advice for fathers on father's day (it demonstrates his relational focus and his emphasis on working on your own heart as a parent): https://www.paultripp.com/articles/p...ssons-for-dads
