Book Review: Put the Disciple into Discipline: Parenting with Love and Limits


Book Review: Put the Disciple into Discipline: Parenting with Love and Limits

Put the Disciple into Discipline: Parenting with Love and Limits is scheduled to be released June 20, 2017, but you can preorder it right now and be one of the first to receive it.

We were sent a review copy by the publicist so that we might write a review and help spread the word about this great book.

This is not your typical parenting book.  In fact, we have read many, many books on parenting and have never seen anything quite like it.  Gone are the time outs, spanking, groundings and restrictions.

What, you say?  What’s left?  This book is a Christian-based approach to disciplining your child.
Put the Disciple into Discipline was written by a mother-daughter team.  This would have been helpful, but not terribly important, information early in the book. However, we don’t really find that out until late in the book.

That’s okay though. This book is chock full of anecdotes and some good common sense advice that is not so common these days.  If we were to sum up the approach to this book, we would have to say that it is sort of like, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.  Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a life time.”

Punish a child and you get the results you seek for a short time.  Teach him the proper way to behaving in a loving, Christian way, and you get the proper results for a lifetime.

You are not going to get an answer for every discipline problem you face. However, you will get ideas about how to face problems not even mentioned in this book.

Put the Disciple into Discipline is chock full of Biblical references.  This mother/daughter tag team takes turns writing chapters and answering questions throughout the book.

We will be adding Put the Disciple into Discipline to the recommended reading list for How to Manage Your Monkey.  You may also want to visit their blogs at:


We give Put the Disciple into Discipline all five stars on our scale of zero to five stars.  It would make a wonderful gift to parents who are struggling with trying to raise Christian children.  It would also be a great idea to purchase an extra copy and give it to your church library.
