Too much of today's Christian parenting is based on fear: fear of the world... fear of America's liberal culture... fear of other parents' and the church's opinions. Grace based parenting, on the other hand, relies on God's love, replicates His forgiveness and commitment to His children, and displaces fear as a motivator for every behavior. Tim Kimmel’s Grace Based Parenting will provide a blueprint for building confident, courageous, cooperative, well- rounded and loving kids.
