Shepherding A Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp

Listening to the latest podcast, Joe and Mike were discussing strategies for raising their children based off of Carnegie’s book. Tripp’s book helped me to understand that strategies that relate to changing behavior do not get at the heart of the issue - that is, that if we do not help our children see that their behavior is a result of their heart condition, they cannot see what God is truly concerned with. It addresses some strategies and helped me to see the different stages of child rearing and how each one should be addressed.

I’ve enjoyed this book, and read a few others by the author and would be interested to hear what Mike and Joe think about it for sure.

also, I’ve been listing to the podcast since the 2nd episode and I’m pretty excited to be apart of the officially unofficial internet’s largest book club.



I have to laugh every time I hear @mikeschmitz say this. :laughing:

Sounds intriguing for sure. Thanks for making the recommendation.

IMO, Clay and Sally Clarkson’s “Heartfelt Discipline” is superior to Tedd Tripp’s SACH.

Though, I’ve heard good things about Tedd’s brother, Paul David Tripp’s new book “Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles.”

(I know parenting books aren’t the core of your productivity bookclub. . . Yet I love when y’all define productivity as taking action in the direction of your core values – so these count as “productivity” for me!)

I wonder how this compares to “Instructing a Child’s Heart”, which he wrote with his wife, Margie?
