I own a copy

Read it first as a teacher, then again as a parent. Tripp starts at the bedrock of God's glory and builds a model of parenting from there. He avoids formulas and scripts, frustrating those looking for rules to keep in order to get guaranteed child products. Like most true wisdom, the application of these solid principles takes prayer and practice, prayer and practice, prayer and practice. It's also very helpful to belong to a faith community where many others strive in this direction.

I wish he would write a companion volume for teachers called "Shepherding for hirelings."
