Parenting Unchained {Review}

Recently on my blog I shared about a giveaway in connection with a new book I was reading.  As I've spent time reading Dr Dempsey's new book Parenting Unchained I've been constantly amazed at the goodness of God towards His people in the way He reveals Himself and equips the body of Christ to encourage us in our journey's as parents on earth.

Parenting today's generation is not for the feint of heart and any support and encouragement we can get as we daily walk this walk is something to grasp with two hands.

Parenting Unchained is a book that should be on every Christian parents shelf to be read over and over again to reinforce the biblical truth shared within to equip and empower Dad's and Mum's the world over in their roles as parents.

Today's culture is set up to undermine and destroy God's ultimate gift of family and Satan is out there to kill and destroy every good thing the Lord has made.  In Parenting Unchained Dr Dempsey reminds us that Satan deceives because he knows how valuable truth is.  In Parenting Unchained Dr Dempsey reveals ten deceptions facing parents today and shares biblical truth to break any hold and bring you victory.

Deceptions Uncovered

  1. It’s All About Your Kids; Your Character Doesn’t Matter
  2. You’re Capable; You Can Do This
  3. God Only Cares About Rules
  4. You Can Be a Parent Without Investing Much Time
  5. Teaching the Right Information Is Enough
  6. Why and How You Discipline Don’t Matter—Just Make Them Obey
  7. You Don’t Need to Talk About Your Faith
  8. Children Should Choose Their Life Course (You Don’t Need to Help Them)
  9. It’s All About Consistency (You Don’t Need to Adapt)
  10. Life Should Be Easy 
In each chapter the author shares a personal experience or story to clarify the deception.  He speaks with conviction and personal insight.  From there he shares a biblical truth and finishes each chapter with a series of home activities / questions to help you combat the lie with truth in a very practical way.

Book Description
In Parenting Unchained – Overcoming the Ten Deceptions that Shackle Christian Parents, Dr. James D. Dempsey reveals the ten most destructive lies about parenting. He writes from the heart about the way these lies infected his own parenting, and illuminates the Bible's powerful truths that counter each lie. Both Biblical and practical, each section ends with home activities to help parents take immediate steps to develop their kids' character--character that lasts when they leave home.

The last chapters focus on the most important adjustments parents must make with teenagers to prepare them for independence. Weaving humor into strong warnings, Parenting Unchained points out the hazards that derail the parenting journey.

Final Thoughts
I have been encouraged and equipped as I've read this book.  This new parenting resource has inspired me to keep my eyes focused on  the Lord and to be aware how the enemy seeks to destroy our families. 

I am once again inspired to continue to develop a Deuteronomy 6 culture within our home.

Parenting unchained has valuable information for parents of children of any age or stage.  

Parenting Unchained will inspire and encourage and most of all be like having an encouraging mentor walking alongside you.

Be blessed in this important task you have before you in raising a generation that follows the Lord and is light to the world around them

Blessings
