God's Word is the authority for guiding and disciplining our children if we seek to honor God. If you are looking for a quick reference chart of Bible verses, Wise Words for Moms may be exactly what you are looking for. This is not a book, but a four page chart to assist parents in guiding their children's thoughts and behaviors back to God. Wise Words for Moms is made of sturdy cardstock in a calendar-style format.
Wise Words for Moms was created by Ginger Plowman. (She is the author of Don't Make Me Count to Three, one of my all-time favorite parenting books as you can see in the linked review.) The chart includes topics under Child's Behavior such as bragging, bad friendship, tattling, and revenge along with many others. Next questions are suggested to get to the root of the problem-found in the heart. This area is called Heart Probing. The Reproof area provides Bible verses to help the child to understand what behavior needs to stop or "Put Off." Of course, when we stop one behavior we need to begin another in its place, so Encouragement ("Put On") verses are provided. In these two areas, the appropriate verses are written out or summarized. (I do wish it was consistent with providing the verse.) The chart also includes additional verse references for the parents.
I like Wise Words for Moms because it is a quick resource for parents. (I do wish that it was not just for moms in the title...) I'm sure that many parents have created a similar chart or have even used other resources. (For Instruction in Righteousness comes to mind, linked to my review.) Its calendar-like format makes it easy to tuck in a bookshelf or hang on a wall with a quick hole punch.
