Give Them Grace book. I think we do need to dazzle our kids with the love of Jesus. Giving long guilt trips any time they complain or have a poor attitude just isn't healthy, IMO. All of us want to raise good kids. I'm sorry.

Give Them Grace - Elyse M. Fitzpatrick. Give Them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus. Published by Crossway. So many Christian parents fall into the trap of asking the law to do in the hearts of their children what only grace can accomplish. Armed with threats, manipulation, and guilt, they attempt to create change that only the cross of Jesus Christ makes possible. It is so encouraging to read a parenting book that points parents to the grace of the cross and shows them how to be instruments of that grace in the lives of their children. Paul David Tripp, President, Paul Tripp Ministries.

Give Them Grace is a powerful book that will challenge you to become more gospel centered in your parenting. Please read this book. It will change the way you parent. Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson write about these topics in their book Give Them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus. They challenge us to consider if our parenting is under the law or under the gospel. Is your parenting any different from that of people of other religions? These people also teach their children to be good, obey authority, and be religious, but they don’t teach their children the gospel story of salvation already accomplished through Jesus’ sacrificial death on the cross.

All of us want to raise good kids. And we want to be good parents. But what exactly do we mean by “good?” And is “being good” really the point?

Mother-daughter team Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson contend that every way we try to make our kids “good” is simply an extension of Old Testament Law―a set of standards that is not only unable to save our children, but also powerless to change them.

No, rules are not the answer. What they need is GRACE.

We must tell our kids of the grace-giving God who freely adopts rebels and transforms them into loving sons and daughters. If this is not the message your children hear, if you are just telling them to “be good,” then the gospel needs to transform your parenting too.

Give Them Grace is a revolutionary perspective on parenting that shows us how to receive the gospel afresh and give grace in abundance, helping our children know the dazzling love of Jesus and respond with heartfelt obedience.

I really wanted to love this book. The first part of the had me hopeful, though wary. All in all, the theology/doctrine is firm and a new perspective on parenting from grace could produce a much needed change in our families and churches.

But the application is completely out of touch, and developmentally inappropriate in many examples. The dialogue examples are verbose and unrealistic, very heavy use of the doctrine of total depravity, which would be enough to discourage even the most spirited child. I am always disappointed to see capable and intelligent authors completely overlook or dismiss the leaps and bounds made in recent years in developmental psychology, especially of small children. I don't understand how anyone could truly believe a 20-30min mini-sermon is going to produce heart-changing results in a preschooler. Maybe the examples are merely meant to inspire you with ideas rather than be taken literally, but I pity the kid whose parents go the latter route.

The tone of superiority in the authors' language, especially in the questions for reflection at the end of each chapter, was just such a big put off. They have a lot to say about "crushing a proud child's heart", and hardly anything helpful to say on how to model Christ-like behavior, proactive parenting, and love and grace in ACTION. There is a thick air of pride in between the lines of this book. Once I got to the section on discipline, and the very disappointing page on spanking, I put it down. Lazy, predictable treatment on the issue of corporal punishment; typical, cliche, cut and paste defense of the rod verses in the book of Proverbs (Hebrew wisdom literature, full of allegory and metaphor, written to and about adolescent males). I am not completely anti-spanking, but I don't do it, for very good reasons, and the issue certainly deserves a more intelligent and sensitive treatment than the one given here. And what about the alternatives? What about mercy? What about all the "one another" commands of scripture? We just can't preach grace out of one side of our mouth, and defend strict punitive methods with the other. I lived under that kind of hypocrisy as a child. I won't live that out with mine.

I may finish the last portion of the book for the hope of gleaning some small kernels of wisdom (and maybe I'll end up amending this with another star), but honestly not sure it's worth the time if you are a busy homeschooling mother like me. After a string of very disappointing books on Christian parenting, I just have to say this: Pick up your Bible as often as you have time and be constant and consistent in prayer (alone, with your husband, with your children). Submit to Christ in all things, BE LIKE HIM! Strive to understand the particularities of your children, their personalities, their needs. Be proactive for goodness sake! Stop setting them up for failure with totally unreasonable and outdated expectations! And just let the Spirit lead you in doing what is best for them! Maybe that's a little too precious for some, but honestly your family will be far better off with that formula than with any other 5-star method packed in a pretty book with a catchy tagline.

I loved the overall message of this book. It wasn't just about how to give grace to our children. It was a book that spoke grace to my soul as a parent.

I don't find that it gives very practical methods for raising kids, as say a John Rosamond book would. But I don't think that was the intent of the authors. Some of their examples of how to talk to kids were lengthy and verbose, to say the least...and the authors admitted as such. But it was a very good reminder to me that my ultimate goal in parenting is to point my children to Jesus. Always Jesus.

"Give Them Grace" does an excellent job illuminating the inescapable connection between how a parent understands the Gospel and how he or she in turn parents. The connection is explained, as the title suggests, with an emphasis on the author's conception of grace. Much can be gained from GTG's insights, practical illustrations, and encouragements. That said I have some disagreements.

A basic premise of GTG is that children are "unbelievers", therefore evangelization of the child is the basic focus of the parents, not discipleship. I question this approach (Ps 22:9-10,Gal 1:15, 1 Cor 7:14). As for the parents, missing from GTG, is a stress on the importance of husband-wife unity in parenting. Intentional or not, GTG seems to be addressing a single parent. GTG also fails to stress a Kingdom focus, and tends to cast the Law of God in an unfavorable light, often confounding it with parent-made legislation. God's Law is generally portrayed as somehow antagonistic to grace, when in fact its only problem -- condemnation --is due to a deficiency in us, a deficiency remedied by our Lord's atonement and the indwelling Spirit. Instruction of our children in the Law of God is highly commended by both Christ (Matt 5:19) and the apostle Paul (2 Tim 3:16). It is also highly extolled in the Psalms (Psalm 1,19,119, etc.). Earning favor with God is not the aim of the Law, Christ-like moral beauty is.

That said, "Give Them Grace" still accomplishes much in the way of parental instruction. Throughout GTG there is strong admonition for parents to "walk by faith, not by sight", placing full confidence in the goodness and greatness of God. My disagreements are not meant to discourage its reading. In fact, I highly recommend GTG, as it was highly recommended to me. I was challenged and blessed by its contents.

What a powerful and convicting book! I realized after reading it while going through counseling for myself that I was not living in God's grace and as a result not showing my precious daughters that same grace. If I don't show them grace and subsequently mercy and forgiveness, how on earth can I hope, of course allowing for the work of the Holy Spirit, that they will embrace a relationship with Jesus? Thank you for writing this book on the vital subject of grace.

This book has helped so much to see how much I depended on my myself and my works as a parent and how much I forgot about God's grace. This is like a breath of fresh air and insight into the love of Christ. So many times we forget that His mercy and grace is renewed each day and that we are weak ones who often forget that God saves and not us.
I really like the layout of this book. It was real outlined well. The consistent reference to scripture just refreshed me each time I was able to read. I can't say anything bad about it. I'm overwhelmed and filled to the brim with love for my Savior after reading this. I hope that I'll continue to reread this and recommend it to others which I already have. New mothers especially need to enjoy this and older moms will take a lot of pleasure in this treasure as well.
