Christians often ask themselves, “What would Jesus do?” But here’s one question they may not have asked: “How would Jesus parent a child?” This book nicely answers that question.
I love that Wilkerson has a very child-centric approach to parenting, focusing on raising children with their best interest in mind. I also really liked how Wilkerson included various anecdotes about parenting throughout the book; they were really interesting. If Jesus Had a Child is a good tool for parents, counselors, and educators. Throughout the book, B. Glenn Wilkerson includes handy Discussion Ideas that will help readers engage in meaningful conversations and reflect on the information presented. The book is well researched.
This book was not just a formal how-to guide, but had a nice personal touch. Another great thing about this book is that it doesn’t just talk about raising perfect kids, but has sections discussing topics such as rebellion. The book also talks about other relevant topics, such as bullying and cyber-bullying. Personally, one of my favorite parts of the book was the chapter on love and Wilkerson’s discussion of how parents can express unconditional love.
If Jesus Had a Child is an interesting concept for a book, and it has a lot of valuable teachings. If you’re a parent, this is a book you should consider adding to your shelf. You can buy the book here on Amazon.
