The Myth of the Perfect Parent

Christianity Today has released an e-book Bible study written by Leslie Leyland Fields and yours truly. It’s called The Myth of the Perfect Parent.

Here’s the description:

According to Leslie Leyland Fields in “The Myth of the Perfect Parent,” Bible-believing parents have imbibed the philosophy of John B. Watson, an early 20th-century psychologist who boasted he could train any child. Christians often follow the same kind of behaviorism, giving it a Christian veneer with selected Bible verses. And yet many children in evangelical homes are not “turning out” the way we hope or expect. Our expectations of parenting are clearly off-kilter and need to be rethought.
