Nearly everyone has the intention of being an effective parent. However, most would agree it is easier said than done. Not only as a pastor but as a dad, I have noticed the confusion within our culture of raising daughters and sons in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4). It is not that parents do not have the desire. Many simply lack the tools.
Glenn T. Stanton has written an exceptional book that not only provides foundational principles but also practical handles for parents. Secure Daughters and Confident Sons is well-written and biblically grounded. Although there are not many proof-texts throughout the book, it is biblically-centered in scope. It addresses both daughters and sons equally and provides clear examples for the reader.
It took me longer than normal to read Secure Daughters and Confident Sons. It was not a result of the author, but rather my interest in the subject and nature of the material. This is an excellent read for any parent wanting to raise and equip their children for the days ahead.
