“Why Can’t I Get My Kids to Behave?” by Joey and Carla Link

Over the past several years Joey and Carla have seen a growing chasm between God’s commandment that children are to be obedient and Christian parents’ ability to train their children to become obedient.


Why children won’t behave is a mystery to parents who are willing to offer them the moon for good behavior to no avail. Every child can behave, but first they need to be taught to obey. In this book parents will discover what tools are in the parenting toolbox for successful parenting and how to use them. They will also find out what tools they are already using that need to be thrown away. The Links use biblical principles, so instead of saying, “Why can’t I get my kids to behave?” parents will excitedly say, “Look, my kids behave!”


This book lays down fundamental reasons why children do not behave and what an obedient child is and how to get one. Through teaching, examples and testimonies of parents who have used the time-honored Biblical principles shared here; you too can learn how to get your kids to behave.
