Jennifer McGrail has posted a very favorable book review of Gentle Firmness by Stephanie Cox. Here is an excerpt from her review:
Gentle Firmness, by Stephanie Cox, is one of the most important new books to join the gentle parenting movement, particularly for Christians. Thorough and well-researched, it takes an unflinching look at the history of spanking within the Christian faith; why the Bible doesn’t actually say what so many well-intentioned pro-spankers think it says; the harmful and often long-term effects of spanking; and finally, practical suggestions on what peaceful parents can do instead.
It is an excellent review, so I’m sure you’re going to want to read the rest.
