Descriptions du produit

From Publishers Weekly

Kimmel, author and founder of Family Matters ministries, likens many Christian parents' attempts at rearing children to putting together a puzzle without first studying the completed picture located on the box's cover. Kimmel states that families of faith tend toward extremes, either being overly permissive or overly legalistic. This is not a particularly new concept, but Kimmel pulls it off with interesting storytelling and sound biblical parallels. He says Christians frequently believe that the battle for a child's heart and soul is fought on the outside-with rigid rules and boundaries-when in fact just the opposite is true. He underscores the importance of communicating the unconditional love that Christ offers and affirming this timeless message of grace to one's family. Despite the numerous examples the author cites where parents fail, this text is overwhelmingly upbeat with hope and possibility: Parents who strive to live a life of faith characterized by daily trust in God will pass on this message of possibility and potential to their offspring. Kimmel asserts that this "radical" mode of parenting will meet the three essential needs in kids' lives: for security, significance and strength. He assures parents that these needs can be met with grace-laced love, purpose and hope. Kimmel's gentle heart is evident in every chapter, and his obvious passion will spur frustrated parents to keep at the task with new resolve and optimism.

Présentation de l'éditeur

Parents in our post-modern world tend to be committed to but anxious about their child-rearing responsibilities. They've tried the countless parenting books on the market, but many of these are strident, fear-based books that loving parents instinctively reject, while still searching for direction.



Now Dr. Tim Kimmel, founder of Family Matters ministries, offers a refreshing new look at parenting. Rejecting rigid rules and checklists that don't work, Dr. Kimmel recommends a parenting style that mirrors God's love, reflects His forgiveness, and displaces fear as a motivator for behavior. As we embrace the grace God offers, we begin to give it-creating a solid foundation for growing
morally strong and spiritually motivated children.

Releasing in an affordable trade paper edition, this revolutionary book
presents a whole new way to nurture a healthy family.

I think every parent would benefit from reading Kimmel's book. One of the best aspects is his discussion of his own failures with his own children, but also his description of how he recovered from some of his mistakes.
This would be a good book for heavy disciplinarians to read, but I wonder if they would be able to take on board what he says.
A good aspect of the book is his discussion of how often parents base their discipline of their children on ensuring that other parents approve of them! How true!
There are many amusing and provocative anecdotes, which will make you think.
I also recommend H Norman Wright's "How to Talk So your Kids will Listen."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book that I would highly recommend 31 décembre 2004
Par Jennifer Schrank - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I just finished reading this book and I would highly recommend it. It is directed toward Christian parents but has principles that non-Christian parents can use. My favorite suggestion from his book,which he used in his own family, is the "What's Your Beef?" night.(pages 206-208) To promote respectful candidness in his family, this night allowed his children an opportunity to tell their parents anything that either of them had said or done to hurt them. "The qualification was that they couldn't bring up positions we had taken because of our moral standards(which they might have disagreed with) or consequences that we might have had to bring their way because of things they had done wrong...The key rule for Darcy and me when they shared these things from their hearts was that we were not permitted to defend ourselves...I might have been able to justify my words and actions from my perspective of the facts, but it would have only done harm. The point was, we had hurt them somehow, regardless of the facts."

He also gives an overall matrix that is very useful (what your child's three driving inner needs are and the four basic things you need to do to maintain a grace based environment)and uses many examples from his own family and others.

He also communicates grace for you as a parent, since we all fall short. This book gave me hope and a great start to create a grace based home without compromising moral standards I want to uphold. He does a great job of balancing the two since often we as parents go to either extreme of legalism or anything goes.

Tim Kimmel has done a good job of explaining how many conventional parenting styles fall apart later in a child's life & ultimately lead children to rebellion. It was hard for me to read many of his observations at first, as I myself was parenting with a heavy hand. I sort of felt chastised by him for the first half of the book! I guess I deserved it. I'm glad I hung in there though as he showed me how to lighten up by treating my children with the same grace that God extended to me through Christ. I truly believe I will be a better parent for having read this book! The results have already started to unfold with my three kids. I have been able to let go of some of the small issues I was making such a big deal over & focus more on important issues that matter. Since I rebelled hard as a teen, I was worried about how to handle that later in life when my kids are teens. I feel I am better equipped to deal with those unavoidable years of rebellion as my kids (hopefully) find their own way into the arms of God. I suppose before reading this I just thought I could push them into God's arms & maybe they'd stay there. Thanks Tim, you've lighted my path via your use of God's Word & your experience. I highly recommend this book to parents, grandparents, counselors and teachers.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book has changed my family 6 janvier 2009

This book has literally been escruciating to read. It has exposed the extremes of our style of parenting that we had been using. It caused us to examine the premises upon which we were operating as parents. In being exposed we were forced to say that much of how and why we did things to our children were wrong. The fruit of our style of parenting was bearing ugly fruit that was very painful and destructive. We were losing our son. The Christian boarding school we got him to required this book for us to read and we are so very thankful that we did. It is hard to put into words the emotions that we have gone through as parents; the grief, the guilt; the anger; the deep sadness. Upon reading and discussing the contents of this book, we came to a realization that we were pharisaical parents based upon fear not love and grace. That we had kept things away from our children out of fear that they would turn to "worldly" things. This only caused them to reject us and want it more which caused a huge spiralling out of control mess until our 16 year old was totally out of our control with violence and was tossed out for the sake of the other children. This book caused us to see our wrong and begin to correct it. We now have our son back and are on the road to reconciliation and restoration of our relationship. We have not arrived but we now have a different grace based approach that does not deny Biblical standards and discipline. It is a walk of faith not of formulas because our God desires to have a relationship with us that then we model to our children. It is working!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good overall, but I have some bones to pick 24 mai 2011
Par Lizzy - Publié sur Amazon.com

First of all, I will say that I have enjoyed this book and it has definitely had an impact on my parenting. I would recommend it and I think there are many, many good points in the book.

However, there were a couple of examples of "bad parenting" he used that really struck a sour note with me and I have continued to think about them, so I think I need to vent here a little. I will only address one of the examples that bothered me, since most people probably do not have the same issues with them that I do. For me personally, I think they are inappropriate examples that illustrate a lack of information and understanding/appreciation for God's design, particularly when it comes to motherhood.

The big one for me is that he mentions a mother who decided to deliver a baby in the breech position rather than get a c-section. His explanation was that she did not want to have a c-section scar and that the baby had (repairable) trouble with his hip sockets because of being delivered in that position. The underlying implication was that if she had made a "grace-based" parenting decision, she would have decided to get that c-section.

I understand that Dr. Kimmel was trying to use this situation as an example of a mother putting her own selfish and shallow desires above the good of her baby. But I also know that Dr. Kimmel's wife had 4 c-sections, so he has not had the experience of watching how hard a woman has to work to push out a baby, and therefore I don't think he understands exactly what it means that this woman pushed out a breech baby successfully. I don't think Dr. Kimmel understands that getting a c-section is a HUGE risk in and of itself. More women and babies die from c-section complications than they do from breech deliveries. In that light, I think regardless of her reasons, she made a pretty good decision. Maybe God was working through her flawed reasoning to save her from an even greater mishap during a c-section. And where is the glorification of God's power in this?? The fact that her reasons may have not been upstanding does not change the fact that through God's power and mercy, she delivered a breech baby!! It is something to give thanks for, not a reason to pile shame on or to make an example of her.

If you are going to use this example, then why not supplement it with the stories of women who choose to have a c-section because they don't want to go through labor, or want to avoid hemorrhoids, or want to plan their baby's birth around their schedules, or are just too plain scared to trust that God can bring them safely through the birth experience?

Women deal with enough shame and feelings of inadequacy surrounding their birth experiences. The maternity system in this country is broken, and it is my personal opinion that God longs to restore and heal it. The healing has to begin with people recognizing and respecting that God works through the birth process to bring about empowerment and healing for women.

Don't shame that women for the reasons for her decision. Instead pray that one day she understands the great mercy and grace that was shown to her through her birth experience and that she can be proud of what she did, through God's grace.

I doubt this review will be helpful to anyone, but I felt I needed to voice my opinion about this issue because it definitely changed my view of Dr. Kimmel. I still respect him and his advice and suggestions have really changed the way I approach my parenting. But I think he needs to be careful in the future about the examples he uses. Stay away from examples involving birth (and breastfeeding!).
