Here are some great titles we don’t mind getting behind!
"Keeping Your Kids on God's Side" by Natasha Crain
In this book Natasha Crain explores 40 conversations you can have with your kids bout faith. It’s apologetics at a kid’s level! Awesome!
"No-Drama Discipline" by Daniel J. Sielgel
This book is not written from a Christian perspective but it still contains amazing advice based on the latest brain science. Highly recommended.
"The Whole-Brain Child" by Daniel J. Siegel
Another great book on child development and mentoring your child’s brain.
"The Connected Child" by Karen Purvis et. al.
If you have adopted or foster children you will want to take a look at this AMAZING book based on research from Texas Christian University Child Development Institute. This is a very hopeful and practical book.
"Brainstorm" by Daniel J. Siegel
Dan Siegel’s book on the TEENAGE brain. It is so hopeful and packed with suggestions to help parents and teens through a tricky season of life.
"Grace Based Parenting" by Tim Kimmel
A wonderful parenting book from a Christian perspective.
"Shepherding a Child's Heart" by Tedd Tripp
Parenting is much more about guiding than enforcing.
"Raising a Modern day knight" by Robert Lewis
This book is amazing ESPECIALLY for dads who don’t always know how to mentor the man in their son.
"The out-of-sync child" by Carol Stock Kranowitz
This book is for parents who have kids with sensory processing disorders. It has a companion book by the same author called “The Out-Of-Sync Child Has Fun” which gives TONS of practical activities to do with kids with SPD.
"The Case for Christ for Kids" by Lee Strobel
The “Case for…” books are all amazing and I would recommend “The Case for Faith,” “The Case for a Creator,” “The Case for Grace” in the kids versions for every family.
"God's Design For Sex" by Stan and Brenna Jones
There are four books in the “God’s Design for Sex” series; one for ages 3 to 5, one for ages 5-8, one for ages 8 to 11, and one for ages 11-14. I especially thought the picture books for the two youngest age brackets were great!
