Parenting without fear
Dr. Tim Kimmel contends that too much of today's Christian parenting is based upon fear and, as a result, many parents build walls of holy checklists around their children to keep them safe. What God really wants, he insists in Grace-Based Parenting, is for parents to base their parenting on God's grace instead. With an easy-to-read style and lots of explanations, examples and encouragement, Kimmel gives parents the tools to build or rebuild a home that reflects the security (love), significance (purpose) and strength (hope) that God gives each of His children.
