It is after these basic needs are met that a child will be able to understand and respond to spiritual matters. Combining practical advice with anecdotal examples, Dr Campbell offers a purposeful, life-long approach to building happy, healthy and spiritual children.

“Kids who Follow, Kids Who Don’t” (Previously called “How to Really Know Your Child”) by Dr Ross Campbell – Customer Ratings: 1st title and 2nd title
There will be many challenges we face as parents and we should always be perceptive, listen well and, above all else, model the lifestyle we want our children to follow. We must let our children express their feelings and not become hostile when they express anger or sorrow or moodiness. Dr Campbell feels that the “spare the rod and spoil the child” philosophy is another frustrated way to assume control rather than to take charge. He recommends “time-outs” and more appropriate and effective ways of discipline. As children see and feel acceptance, understanding and love from their earthly parents, they are more likely to believe the same about God the Father, who could become their heavenly parent. Dr Campbell recommends parenting with a strong Christian faith and sharing and teaching that faith to our children.

“Where is God When a Child Suffers” by Penny Giesbrecht – Customer Ratings:
Penny and Tim Giesbrecht naively believed that bad things couldn’t happen to good Christians. Until their “perfect” baby began exhibiting such strange behaviour that “it seemed the Jeremy we knew had died.” Two years of painful tests brought no answers. Then Jeremy was severely burned. As he screamed in pain, his mother cried, “Dear God, where are you?” In her much sought-after book, which was first published in 1988 and re-released in 2005, Penny Giesbrecht explores the feeling a parent in such situations experiences and also Scripture admonitions and teachings about suffering.
“Every five or ten years a really good book comes along on suffering. C.S. Lewis’ The Problem of Pain, and Phillip Yancey’s Where Is God When It Hurts? are classics. Penny Giesbrecht’s Where Is God When a Child Suffers? is the book for now . . . How I wish there had been a book like this when my wife, Pat, and I were suffering with our daughter Kathy . . . when we couldn’t understand. . . . Here are two wonderful, Christ-loving, Bible-believing Christian parents faced with some of the most awesome problems about life . . . How Penny . . . puts things together is really outstanding.” — Ross Campbell, M.D., child raising author
