Hearts and Minds:
Raising Your Child with a Christian View of the World
Shaping your children’s behavior isn’t the most important thing you can do as a parent.
Shaping their hearts and minds is.
How many times have you been tempted to judge your own efforts at parenting by how well-behaved your kids are? How quiet they are around adults? Whether they say please and thank you? Whether they can achieve high marks in school?
Too often, we as parents are pulled and pushed by the busyness of life. We don’t have enough time to think about the impact of the attitudes and thoughts and worldviews that seep into our children’s lives through television, the Internet, classroom instruction, and peer groups.
In this well-researched and practical book, Kenneth Boa and John Alan Turner encourage parents to focus on preparing our children for the onslaught of competing worldviews by training them to have a consistently Christian view of the world. What’s most important is to influence our children’s hearts so that their lives reflect the attitudes and thoughts of Jesus.
It’s a tall order. But with this groundbreaking book, Hearts and Minds, the authors equip parents to succeed.
“In this book, Ken and John give parents the basic tools they need to shape the way a child sees God, the world, and their place in the world.” -- From the foreword by Charles Colson
