“Give Them Grace” – the next parenting book I’m reading

2016-09-23-10-13-07_sm

This book is much stronger in Christian theology than it is in “quick parenting tips.” That’s why I like it. I’m only about half way through, but it’s re-shaped the way I approach parenting and challenging me personally as well.

She brings back everything to the gospel:

On motivation for obedience:

For one example, she tells a story of two siblings David & Susan. Their basic mindsets can be compared to the prodigal son (David) and the self-righteous older brother (Susan).

In my childhood, I was always the “the good girl.” I’ve identified before with the self-righteous older brother, annoyed at the father’s gracious welcome to the irresponsible, disrespectful younger brother. “Why should he get a party?! I’m the one who has been here all along, being ‘good’!”

So true.
