  1. What did you think of Parenting in the Pew? I read this and h ere is my review – http://readornotread.blogspot.com/2009/06/parenting-in-pew.html – I was disappointed with it.

  2. I would probably give it 3 out of 5 stars. There were some fairly good principles, such as teaching our children to worship God, not just to sit still and be quiet. However, I found her practical applications leaving much to be desired, especially in regards to how to teach children to worship and listen during the sermon. That is perhaps the hardest part of a church service for smaller children, but that is the area that I feel she really missed it. The crux of the chapter seemed to be “get the pastor to use simpler sermons or ones that children can understand.” Didn’t help at all, in my opinion.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hey Sian Thanks, so glad you found it useful. I think it pays to revisit the older stuff every once in a while, after all the bulk of the work is done. A few tweaks here and there could make all the direeffnce. Have fun with the revamp
