God, the Rod and Your Child’s Bod
The Art of Loving Correction for Christian Parents
Life is bad and children are out of control, but with a handy stick, you can beat the crap out of them. Really.
Evidently the corrupt world (probably the fault of divorcees, selfish mothers, feminists and gays) is causing your children to become undiciplined monsters. But you can get a stick and beat your kids into good behavior. It’s okay because you do it with love.
I will be in the back weeping for humanity,
If you remember, I resurrected an old title from 2009 and re-did the post. It’s your lucky day, I have yet another book from the same author.
I have included this lead off scenario about a kid robbing a McDonald’s and hanging around a bad crowd. This is what happens when you quit listening to your parents, quit going to church, and start doing drugs. I hope all of you are taking notes.
This book is a Christian devotional for teens and on one level it is a pretty good choice -short situations and appropriate scripture. So far so good. However, there is no “solution” or even a suggestion of guidance beyond scripture. (There is also some nice guilt and judgment thrown in.) I get it. It’s a devotional, not a self-help. But really if you are going to sell me coolness, I am going to need a bit more. (A LOT more.) A John Tesh look-a-like for the cover is not helping the cool factor either.
If you want even more entertainment, read the comments on Amazon’s page for this book. In other news, this book is still hanging out in a lot of public libraries.
Still, I like to think I am cooler than Holly.
