In these times of enormous stress on families, where can we find down-to-earth help for raising our children?
Declaring that the scriptures are the Lord's handbook for families, father and author S. Michael Wilcox applies in What the Scriptures Teach Us about Raising a Child his considerable scriptural knowledge and practical insight to the subject of parenting.
Through examples both of God's dealings with us and also of scriptural parents' dealings with their own children, Brother Wilcox explores a variety of subjects, including how to:
- Receive Heavenly Father's insights about your unique child
- Say no
- Build long-term relationships
- Inspire such qualities as virtue, compassion, and resilience
- Help a child who is struggling
- Manage your own parental expectations, and much more.
In an ever-changing world, the kind of parenting book you can trust would be an authoritative source with time-proven principles that rise above social trends.
It would provide real examples and clear answers.
And it would acknowledge the incomparable rewards — earthly and eternal — of raising children.
Simply put, the kind of parenting book you can trust would offer the hope and the help to be found in the scriptures, written by a guide well versed both in the scriptures themselves and in the day-to-day trials and joys of parenting.
That book is What the Scriptures Teach Us about Raising a Child.

S. Michael Wilcox opens up the scriptures in a way only he can and shows yet again how the words of God can direct us and help us in this life. Nothing is more important than raising our children to love the Lord and be faithful Saints, many wonderful examples are given from the scriptures that show us how we can do this.
An enjoyable and useful book

This book is full of things to help improve your interactions between parent and child. Each chapter was easy to read and understand and had a clear message and advice; with practical things to do and things to think about. Stories and verses from the scriptures were quoted and talked about. It helped to know the skills we too can do and it also helped me to see the scriptures in a new way: full of family stories and the way the great father our Heavenly Father is parenting us. This is a book I highly recommend.
