“The main goal of this book,” writes Dr. William and Martha Sears, “is to help parents achieve what we believe are the three primary goals of Christian parenting: to know your child, to help your child feel right, and to lead your child to Christ.” As the parents of eight, this husband and wife team—he an acclaimed pediatrician and she a registered nurse—has extensive first-hand experience in guiding the physical, emotional, and spiritual development of children. This all-encompassing book combines a solid biblical worldview with a medical professional’s understanding of childhood and family development on topics.
