What is your calling as a parent?

In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything “right” and raise up “good” children, it’s easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas.

In this life-giving book, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God’s plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God―grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents.

Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children’s hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy. 

Review

"Paul Tripp constantly turns us back to the life-giving power of the gospel and God''s unfailing grace. Parenting our children is one of life''s greatest challenges, and Paul points us to the one thing that can make a difference―a genuine encounter with the living God."
TobyMac, hip-hop recording artist; music producer; songwriter

"Simply put, I read everything that Paul Tripp writes. I can’t afford to miss one word."
Ann Voskamp, New York Times best-selling author, The Broken Way and One Thousand Gifts

"This is the most meaningful book I have read all year. It is both theological and practical, a rare combination for a parenting book. For years, people have asked me to write a book on parenting. After reading this, I am convinced that I could never write one better than this. I’m so glad I read this, but I wish I could have read it twenty years ago. After reading Parenting, I was torn. Part of me wanted to sit, cry, and confess all of my failures as a parent. The other part wanted to scream with excitement for the tremendous insight I now have to be a better parent."
Francis Chan, New York Times bestselling author, Crazy Love and Forgotten God

"I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is simply outstanding. This is Tripp at his best: he shows us the big picture of life with Christ and gets down to the nitty-gritty specifics of walking by grace through faith. Tripp''s manifesto is about more than simply our duty as parents―it''s about our privilege of being ambassadors of Jesus Christ to our kids. Moms and dads from every culture will benefit from Tripp''s call for us to live in light of the grace and hope we have in Jesus."
Gloria Furman, author, Alive in Him and Labor with Hope

"This book is so timely for me. My bride and I are raising four children aged five and under, and we need help! It''s easy to find books with parenting tips on how to correct our children''s behavior, but Paul Tripp''s book goes far beyond behavior; he takes the reader to the source of the problem―the heart. If we understand our children at a heart level and have a proper understanding of the gospel, then we can parent them as God intends. Paul Tripp has written a simple yet profound book. Parents, you need to read this now. You will surely be blessed."
Webb Simpson, professional golfer; 2012 US Open Champion

"I am an imperfect parent. You probably are too. Buy this book and soak in it. This is not another ''5 Steps to Becoming a Perfect Parent''―instead, Tripp wants us to see our relationship to God and to our children through a big-picture lens. My wife and I are always-go-never-stop parents of young children. If you know the feeling, this book will be both challenging and refreshing, and ultimately it will be a great blessing to your journey. Tripp has made me think in a fresh way about the extremely important and tremendously challenging task that is everyday parenting. To raise up a child is a great responsibility―let us take it up with reverence, joy, and a loving heart!"
Jacob Tamme, NFL® tight end

I haven’t finished this book yet, but I really wanted to address something that I read in the reviews of this book. Someone commented that this book denigrates parents who work. Though I can’t speak for the author himself, I can try to explain what I believe he is saying.

When he says that today, many parents are choosing to work rather than take care of their children, I don’t think he is talking about the ones that HAVE to work. There are many couples who need two incomes, and that’s totally ok. The Bible never says “one parent must stay home with the child.” What I believe he is referring to is the new cultural norm of women needing careers to feel validated and have a “real job.” I’m not saying that women can’t work. What I’m saying is that being a stay at home parent is a REAL job. A 24/7 never ending job. What I truly believe the author is saying is that parents should, if possible, raise their own children. Sometimes, it’s not. However, sometimes parents are on the hunt for having a big house, a successful career, all these material things instead of focusing on parenting. When in reality, they could scale back - live in a smaller home, drive an older car, etc. - and afford to have one parent stay home or maybe just work part time to raise their child.

My goal in this post is not to make working moms feel bad. I can see how what the author wrote could be offensive - but I truly don’t think he meant it in that way. I do think it could be a wake up call to some who are working not for God’s glory but for excessive money, success, etc. But so far I do love this book. It has helped me to refocus my parenting on Him and especially His grace. Would definitely recommend.

I really wanted to like this book. I bought it based on the awesome reviews and the glowing recommendations made by people who are well known in the Christian community. I loved the introduction and couldn''t wait the start the first chapter. But four pages into the first chapter I read this:

"Thousands and thousands of children are handed over every day to people they don''t know because success in work and career has become too important for their parents. Since neither parent is willing to step away from their work outside the home for fear of its long-term implications on their career and finances, no one is left to take care of the children, so someone else must be hired to do it. I know this is controversial, and I would never judge a couple who have their children in day care without knowing the details of why they made that decision, but I am troubled that we are not talking about this more. I am saddened by the numbers of children not with their parents for the bulk of the day during their formative years. I am saddened by the growing cultural comfortability with ''latchkey'' children. I am concerned about how many exhausted parents pick up their children at the end of their day and are just not able to have the kind of patience and grace that they need for the rest of the evening with their children..."

The author states he is not judging these families - and yet, he is. He further states that he would never "judge a couple who have their children in day care without knowing the details...". Maybe he just shouldn''t judge at all. Period. As Christians we are called to love and not to judge. I was so disappointed with this and I really tried hard to understand it. I even kept reading because I REALLY wanted to read and love this book. Despite my best efforts, I couldn''t finish the chapter knowing that the author was writing from this perspective. Mr. Tripp, my child is one of those thousands of children who is dropped off every morning because God has called me to work outside the home. Many of the parents of those thousands of children will tell you that dropping off our children is the hardest, most stressful thing we have to do. I am so sorry that you feel we made this decision based on something as simple as career goals or finances, it was much more complex than that. It was not entered into lightly or without prayer and discernment. This book has such good potential, I wish it hadn''t been ruined for me in the first chapter.

Rather than writing a "how-to" or method-based book on parenting, Paul Tripp has given us a valuable resource that clearly lays out some biblical principles that must affect our parenting. Then from that basis, some suggestions, methods, and ideas are given. But the emphasis is on making sure that the parent understands the biblical principles that must inform our parenting. Tripp does a very good job of this.

What I appreciate is that you may or I may differ on the application of the principle to specific choices in parenting; nevertheless, the principles are thoroughly biblical and since this is where the emphasis is, all Christian, Bible-believing parents should find this an extremely valuable resource.

Here are the chapters and the principles laid out:
1. Calling - Nothing is more important in your life than being one of God''s tools to form a human soul
2. Grace: God never calls you to a task without giving you what you need to do it. He never sends you without going with you.
3. Law: Your children need God''s law, but you cannot ask the law to do what only grace can accomplish.
4. Inability: Recognizing what you are unable to do is essential to good parenting.
5. Identity: If you are not resting as a parent in your identity in Christ, you will look for identity in your children.
6. Process: You must be committed as a parent to long-view parenting because change is a process and not an event.
7. Lost: As a parent you''re not dealing just with bad behavior, but a condition that causes bad behavior.
8. Authority: One of the foundational heart issues in the life of every child is authority. Teaching and modeling the protective beauty of authority is one of the foundations of good parenting.
9. Foolishness: The foolishness inside your children is more dangerous to them than the temptation outside of them. Only God''s grace has the power to rescue fools.
10. Character: Not all of the wrong your children do is a direct rebellion to authority; much of the wrong is the result of a lack of character.
11. False Gods: You are parenting a worshiper, so it''s important to remember that what rules your child''s heart will control his behavior.
12. Control: The goal of parenting is not control of behavior, but rather heart and life change.
13. Rest: It is only rest in God''s presence and grace that will make you a joyful and patient parent.
14. Mercy: No parent gives mercy better than one who is convinced that he desperately needs it himself.

He does not use scripture in a literal way, more of an overall “heart of scripture” way.
I would even say that he uses scripture out of context for his benefit. This is problematic in my opinion.

He gaslights parents into feeling that if they disagree with him, it’s them who are wrong, with phrases like, “don’t fool yourself into thinking these little things don’t matter”. He’s calling out the fact that parents at that point are thinking, “I don’t think that’s right” and he brings attention to it so you rethink your stance. He does not offer any middle ground, it’s his way or you are wrong. He leaves no space for nuance. He does this several times through the book.

His writing style is very wordy. He uses a lot of words to say something he could have said much more clearly, with fewer words. By half way through the book you’re thinking “just get to the point!” He is very repetitive and covers the same topics in each chapter. He could have cut at least two or three full chapters conservatively.

He makes a lot of assumptions about children’s motives and is very against attachment parenting styles. (Ex. Says if baby cries when you leave them in their crib it’s because they’re wanting to control you) He has some kind of deep issue with kids eating the food that you place in front of them no matter what. He brings it up at least four times. He writes the book from a very personal perspective and says it’s “gospel based” but in truth, much of what he says isn’t gospel based at all. He uses many Old Testament law scriptures to prove his points.

His personal beliefs run rampant through the pages of this book, for example in chapter 10 he gives the example of a mom rushing around because she is going to have guests come over, her kids are nicely playing a game and they don’t offer to help her. He calls it a character issue in the children. He doesn’t once address the fact that it is not the job of children to “rescue” their mother. In his example, the mom does not ask the children for help and he doesn’t even entertain the idea that maybe the mom should have planned ahead better instead of getting mad at her children for not saving her from herself. But to him, it’s the character of the children that is bad. This book is full of examples like this that are obviously fueled by his own opinions and ideals.

This is not a book for parents with children who are neurodiverse, he leaves no room for children to be who they are, he says autonomy is a lie and sin.

I do not recommend this book at all. It will make you a more depressed, sad parent guaranteed. Because to him, children are ugly little sinners who are awful in every way, which is a stark contrast to Jesus who calls the children to him and says to be like them in their faith.

If you choose to still read this book, remember a few things, he is JUST a person who has some ideas about things. He never used these concepts with his own children. It’s all hypothetical, his kids were fully grown at the time of writing and he says himself that he was an angry parent. Do you want to take advice from someone who has never seen it in practice? This is not the gospel. Check what he says against the Bible itself.

Pro: Excellent emphasis on parental priorities—“The most important thing that a child could ever learn about is the existence, character, and plan of God.” Excellent emphasis on the need for God’s grace—“Good parenting lives at the intersection of a humble admission of personal powerlessness and a confident rest in the power and grace of God.”
Excellent emphasis on worship—“Worship is that inner desire for wonder, amazement, and awe that every human being possesses. It is that craving to be fulfilled. It is that constant search for life. It is wanting personal meaning and purpose…. It’s that universal hunger for inner peace. It’s that life-long hunt for God…. It’s the reality that no one is godless. We all give our hearts to the one true God or to some created God replacement.” Excellent use of humor—“It’s so easy in the middle of any day of parenting multiple children to lose your mind.” Lots of wisdom—“Parenting is not a series of dramatic confrontation-confession events, but rather a life-long process of incremental awareness and progressive change. The four-year-old will not say after you confront him, ‘I am a self-centered, self-ruling idolater in need of redemption.’ ”
Con: Repetitive; Organization; The book was sometimes confusing and sometimes left me feeling overwhelmed and weighed down. For example, the book is structured around 14 big-picture principles, but each chapter is full of minor principles and tips. Also, the book uses many rhetorical questions. Sometimes, the minor principles, tips and questions illuminated practical wisdom, but the clarity provided by the big-picture principles was sometimes muddied by the shift to a little-picture perspective. Also, the 14 big-picture principles are referred to as gospel principles. Sometimes, the relationship between the principle and the gospel is very clear, but sometimes it isn’t as clear (e.g. the Identity principle).

Though I think I need a formula instead I need perspective, and that''s what this book has given me. Parenting by Tripp gives us the perspective we need, drilling down into the Gospel and its implications for parenting. Shepherding Your Child''s Heart by Paul''s brother,Ted, is great, but I left thinking there''s more of a formula, one that if I follow all will be well (surely not Ted''s fault). However, when I read in Parenting''s intro that this book was less practical I thought ''great, but what I really need is practical.'' Having read it I''m glad it''s less ''practical'' as it''s driven me away from loading my ''formula'' with unrealistic expectations and leaves me more reliant on God''s timing and grace. I''d recommend reading both Ted''s and Paul''s books but if you had to start with one, go with this one.

I''ve read many parenting books and have enjoyed the parenting tips and how-to''s from those books. What I appreciate about this book by Paul David Tripp is it really gets to the heart of parenting. We do not own our children. We are ambassadors--we are tools in the hand of God to bring change, but we can''t change our children. This is something I''ve been dwelling on in my parenting journey over the years. It seems as if most parents are stressed, overworked, and lack joy in their children. Tripp reminds us that God gives us peace and security in parenting. We don''t have to fix our kids. We can let God do that.

Tripp discusses what "ownership" parenting looks like. The results are parents who try to control their kids with fear, shame, and rewards. Instead of loving our children and being used by God, we manipulate, coerce, and use tactics that don''t bring change. Instead, all our efforts bring stressful home lives and children who disobey. Ownership parenting is not how God designed us to live as parents. Tripp takes us on the journey of what parenting should look like as ambassadors for Christ. We can rest knowing that God will take care of our children.

Tripp talks extensively about grace. Through the entire book, he talks about how we can''t live up to the standard and how our children can''t either. This is the background of the book: grace. So if you read the book and think "wow, he''s telling me to do a lot of stuff" and you become overwhelmed, it''s because you need to remember the backdrop of grace that he''s talked about from the beginning. The entire book points to the gospel of grace, not works. Yes, there are wise and helpful things we as parents "should" do. To be honest, the chapter on "Character" made me feel sad. I know my kids lack character. I know I do as well. But then the next chapter on "False Idols" actually pointed back to the grace. If you only read one chapter from the book, you might not see the backdrop so it''s important to read the entire book and take it as a whole. The grace we need as parents comes from Christ, not rules. Tripp makes this quite evident in the book.

This book is not filled with practical tips or parenting advice in the form of "when this happens, do this". Instead, it''s much more heart oriented, asking you to grasp the big picture of the gospel for your children. This book has encouraged me as a mom to stop trying to be everything, fix everything, and manufacture experiences that would somehow make my children better. Instead, I''ve really embraced the practical advice of living out my life for God in a way that my kids will see it. That''s the most important thing I took from this book--that it''s my job as their mom to help them see the wonderful, awesome nature of a mighty God. I get to rest in Him, knowing that He is wise and good and loving and I can have peace as a parent, even in conflict, knowing that He has the best in mind for us all. Instead of looking at parenting conflict and struggles as annoyances, I can look at them as opportunities to make a big deal of God. This is huge. Tripp explains all these things very well in the book.

I am going to be re-reading this again because it''s so important. Paul Tripp is one of my favorite authors and this book does not disappoint. For more practical, hands-on parenting advice that goes really well with this book as a foundation, try Discipline that Connects With Your Child''s Heart by Jim & Lynn Jackson. This book will drastically change how you approach parenting conflict but in a grace-filled way.

This book is truly life changing. I’m only in the second chapter and it is fantastic. MUST READ. The book is in fantastic condition too seeing as i bought it used EDIT: I have just finished the book and I thought I would revise and add to my review. I have now given it 4 instead of 5 stars. The principles of the book are incredible. It is truly a must read for all Christian parents. It is definitely not a how-to but it is meant to shift the mindset and change how parents view and approach parenting. I noticed that some readers found it left them feeling inadequate and guilty. I didn''t find that at all as the book clearly states that although we are unable to save our children, God is fully able to use us to do that. I find that in the chapter titled "Rest" which is the chapter before last the book kind of becomes full circle as it talks about how we can find rest in Jesus and that He is always there with us carrying our burdens. I gave it 4 stars because: 1- I found plenty of spelling and grammatical mistakes and English isn''t my first language. While this doesn''t affect the message whatsoever, it subconsciously undermines the words somehow. It made me feel the book was rushed or not properly revised. 2- There is a GREAT deal of repetition in the book. I found it at parts almost off-putting. In some paragraphs, you can almost expect what will come next. 3- The writer mentions in more than one place in the book that God loves your children and He shows that by placing them in a christian family. Does that mean God doesn''t love the children the aren''t born into non-Christian families? Being born into a Christian family is ONLY an advantage but NEVER a guarantee. God loves everyone and has his own ways of speaking to and revealing himself to everyone. There are children which are born into Christian families. brought up in church and taught all there is to know about God yet they couldn''t be further away from him. In conclusion, I definitely recommend this book. It is very readable and understandable. Very important especially in this day and age.

Overall I would recommend this book as it had many important gems of information that have the potential to radically transform parenting from a Christian perspective. However, there were several chapters that I found very repetitive. The author''s justification goes: "I have touched on that subject in many of the chapters you have already read, but I want us together to focus our attention on this subject more fully here." I didn''t find I gained anything from reading the "more full discussion" because of the repetitiveness of the details. The book could probably have been half the length to convey the same information.

I completely loved the parenting approach he talks about here, and how God’s love and Jesus’ love for us is actually the perfect model for us all to follow. I took loads of notes and felt inspired to assimilate these ideas into my parenting. The only thing I didn’t like is his strong encouragement to talk about the redeeming grace of Jesus to our children every single day. It’s essential, I do agree, for all of us to be aware of what Jesus did and does for us, I just don’t think I will talk about God to my children with the same verbiage. I still cringe a little with fundamental verbiage like Savior and Redeemer, especially when they’re so young. I prefer talking to them (and viewing God myself) about abundant love. Anyway, I give it 5 stars anyway because Tripp clearly understands the difficulties of parenting and how it exposes our own faults and failures, and Tripp’s notion of heart awareness I find incredibly helpful. Lots of good stuff here and I will probably read it again. I will definitely recommend it to friends, although perhaps not my atheist friends!

What is your calling as a parent?

In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything “right” and raise up “good” children, it’s easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas.

In this life-giving book, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God’s plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God―grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents.

Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children’s hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy. 

Review

"Paul Tripp constantly turns us back to the life-giving power of the gospel and God''s unfailing grace. Parenting our children is one of life''s greatest challenges, and Paul points us to the one thing that can make a difference―a genuine encounter with the living God."
TobyMac, hip-hop recording artist; music producer; songwriter

"Simply put, I read everything that Paul Tripp writes. I can’t afford to miss one word."
Ann Voskamp, New York Times best-selling author, The Broken Way and One Thousand Gifts

"This is the most meaningful book I have read all year. It is both theological and practical, a rare combination for a parenting book. For years, people have asked me to write a book on parenting. After reading this, I am convinced that I could never write one better than this. I’m so glad I read this, but I wish I could have read it twenty years ago. After reading Parenting, I was torn. Part of me wanted to sit, cry, and confess all of my failures as a parent. The other part wanted to scream with excitement for the tremendous insight I now have to be a better parent."
Francis Chan, New York Times bestselling author, Crazy Love and Forgotten God

"I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is simply outstanding. This is Tripp at his best: he shows us the big picture of life with Christ and gets down to the nitty-gritty specifics of walking by grace through faith. Tripp''s manifesto is about more than simply our duty as parents―it''s about our privilege of being ambassadors of Jesus Christ to our kids. Moms and dads from every culture will benefit from Tripp''s call for us to live in light of the grace and hope we have in Jesus."
Gloria Furman, author, Alive in Him and Labor with Hope

"This book is so timely for me. My bride and I are raising four children aged five and under, and we need help! It''s easy to find books with parenting tips on how to correct our children''s behavior, but Paul Tripp''s book goes far beyond behavior; he takes the reader to the source of the problem―the heart. If we understand our children at a heart level and have a proper understanding of the gospel, then we can parent them as God intends. Paul Tripp has written a simple yet profound book. Parents, you need to read this now. You will surely be blessed."
Webb Simpson, professional golfer; 2012 US Open Champion

"I am an imperfect parent. You probably are too. Buy this book and soak in it. This is not another ''5 Steps to Becoming a Perfect Parent''―instead, Tripp wants us to see our relationship to God and to our children through a big-picture lens. My wife and I are always-go-never-stop parents of young children. If you know the feeling, this book will be both challenging and refreshing, and ultimately it will be a great blessing to your journey. Tripp has made me think in a fresh way about the extremely important and tremendously challenging task that is everyday parenting. To raise up a child is a great responsibility―let us take it up with reverence, joy, and a loving heart!"
Jacob Tamme, NFL® tight end
