Addiction-Proof Parenting: Biblical Prevention Strategies – what’s the book all about?

February 12, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

In my latest book, I wrote on the topic of parenting. I think the best summation of what the book is about comes from Dr. Tedd Tripp’s endorsement of it. Dr. Tripp, author of Shepherding a Child’s Heart, said this about the book:

I think this is a great book. It is properly aligned, and because of extensive counseling experience, Mark Shaw is able to work back from how addicts think to biblical ways of thinking about oneself and life that counter “addictive” thought patterns. This book is for serious parents who will invest time in training their children. What could possibly be more important in this dangerous world? I hope you will read this book – even better – do this book!

Dr. Tripp gets it. I start from how addicts think of themselves and work backwards to help parents PREVENT instilling this mindset in their children. I think it’s a practical tool to help all parents! I trust you will be challenged and encouraged as you read this book and put it into practice in your family!

    Mark I think Shirley prompted me into your new nickname. The nickname is TAG. So now if I say hey, tag, what’s new you’ll know what I mean.
    You know of coarse what “tag ” stands for. Well what else could it stand for but
    “The Addictions Guy”

    in fun,

    Michael
