At first, I was hesitant to read a parenting book which was originally published in 1890. I arrogantly assumed that Hints on Child Training could not speak to family life in the 21st century, at least, not for my family.
Core parenting principles transcend decades and centuries. Author H.C. Trumbull, great-grandfather of Elisabeth Elliot, combines a Biblical foundation with his personal experience, along with insight from practical educators, to give us Hints on Child Training, a resource that will help shape your parenting.
- Will-training (not will-breaking)
- Training a child in self-control
- Training a child’s faith
- The value of table talk
- Dealing tenderly with a child’s fears
Don’t let another century pass by before you buy this book!
