Several commenters on this blog have been interested in discussing the various parenting models that are popular within the Christian church today. I am aware that this may open up the flood gates of contention but several comments on this blog and on the “millstone” thread on my thatmom blog make me think that this might be a good topic for discussion.

I just want to say ahead of time that I hope we will all be exceedingly gracious and kind as we explore the teachings that are popular within Christian circles today regarding raising, disciplining and discipling children. And I want to encourage us to not only share our own views and philosophies but also to show the Biblical precedent for our choices.

Any thoughts?
