God at the Kitchen Table: Teaching Your Religious and Moral Beliefs to Your Children

Resource Type

Book - Parent


"Cooper is to be applauded for the idea behind this book that parents can't simply sit back and benignly hope that their children will absorb their spiritual values. Drawing on his own experiences as a father of three, Cooper writes of his discovery that what his oldest son was soaking up in Sunday School could sometimes be counterproductive. "Before our very eyes, the wise and loving God of our belief system was being transformed into a mostly nice but sometimes pretty mean God," he explains. He and his wife started taking matters into their own hands observing the Sabbath, having Sunday evening devotionals, volunteering to do community service and involving the kids in decisions about charitable contributions. This book contains helpful suggestions on implementing the above changes, as well as tips on talking to kids about drugs, sex, God, prayer and other major topics." -Publisher's Weekly
