23. No posts harshly dissecting parenting moments of others since we desire to humbly cultivate a heart attitude of grace and not judgment towards other mamas. We all struggle at times as parents and have much to learn, and GCM's focus is to provide tools and information for each of us to parent more effectively. Posts voicing some frustration regarding choices made by others can be okay, but it needs to be within the overall context of seeking understanding or ideas for better responses in the future.

Default Has anyone heard about this book?

It's called Give Them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus by Elyse Fitzpatrick. I don't think it comes out until June but was wondering if it was the same old, same old punishment book. It doesn't sound like it. The assistant pastor of my former church mentioned it on his blog.

In the editorial reviews section on Amazon, there is a raving review from Paul Tripp (the brother of the guy who wrote SACH).

But remember that one thing about SACH is that the first 3/4 is about connecting to your children, so don't write the book off quite yet based on that. Lets hope its the 3/4 WITHOUT Tripps 1/4 disasterous ending.

Looks interesting, I'd be curious to glance over a table of contents.

True, true. I think it is hard for me to get the other 1/4 out of my head. I actually really did like the other stuff. I think he actually has a good understanding of grace and relationships, he just needs to get those "rod" verses in a proper context.

There's a blog by the author here. Doesn't mention spanking.

I'm cautious about this author. One of her blog entries talked about her getting a speeding ticket and explained how she was receiving her "just punishment." A commenter noted how she admired how she "received her discipline." Idk. The wording they are using sounds punitive. I hope I'm wrong.

Me too. She is a "Biblical Counselor", which tends to be a red flag in my experience.

The title is certainly encouraging! I have a gentle parenting friend who has it on her "to read" list on Goodreads. I'll be interested to hear what she thinks of it.

It looks like it. They have that book in the store section of the blog.

So far it sounds like she's emphasizing the right stuff... but I don't know anything about her beyond what I just read on the blog.

This is terrible!! She's all about spanking!!! Another thing, she's just like Tripp because she keeps talking about "it's the child's heart" we should be after. I hate the "measured spankings are Biblical" garbage. This woman and Tripp are cut from the same cloth.
