Parents seek to raise moral and godly children, but many don't know how. ON BECOMING CHILDWISE offers parents of children aged three to seven helpful and biblical advice on discipline, communication and respect.
Gary Ezzo, author, pastor and father, and Robert Bucknam, paediatrician, draw from their professional and personal in-the-trenches experience to offer practical instruction on raising morally responsible children.
As a child moves beyond the toddler years, new challenges arise for parents. Be prepared for this exciting stage with fifteen "Childwise" principles for training children ages 3-7 in happy and responsible living.
The growth phase between five and eight years of age, is a time when parental training and encouragement are major players in a child's developing world. These early school years awaken within a child a sense of fearful adventure in an ever-expanding world outside the confines of mom and dad. It is a time when his intellect develops sufficiently to allow purposeful interaction with adults and other children. As that interaction begins, he begins to process experiences and sensations from his deepening relationships that direct the way he interprets life. As his world unfolds, new and broader expectations are realized. Now he is confronted with role functions, norms, and expected standards of conduct which sometimes conflict with each other as well as with his own self-centered perceptions.
Ezzo is a graduate of Talbot Seminary and School of Theology and is executive director of Growing Families International. ý
