Review of ‘Big Picture Parents’ on The Gospel Coalition Australia

TGC

“What the world needs now is another book on parenting. Right?

Another book with a list of what to do, and what not to do. Some new system of time-out or positive reinforcement. Some social media strategies for teenagers and sleeping schedules for babies.

I went looking for little pieces of grandmotherly advice, but what I found was something much greater. As I read the Bible, I realised that what modern parents need most is not more advice, but a “big picture” – a framework for making sense of both life and parenthood.

I invite you to join me in stepping back from all the “shoulds and shouldn’ts” of modern parenting to consider the bigger questions.
