“If you do that ONE more time…”
“Do you want to get in trouble?”
“I can’t take it anymore!”

- giving consistent discipline
- practical ways to fight mommy anger
- how to discern whether a parenting resource is biblical

Tips for Discerning if Parenting materials are Biblical:
- Start with trusted ministries like DesiringGod.org, The Gospel Coalition, John MacArthur
- Flip through the book to evaluate: is it regularly using Scripture?
- Go deeper: is it using Scripture *IN CONTEXT*? Is it upholding Scripture or trying to redefine/pick it apart?
