J. C. Ryle on the Duties of Parents

We’d like to recommend J. C. Ryle’s tremendous little book on parenting, entitled The Duties of Parents.  It can be downloaded for free on the internet at www.feedbooks.com/book/4236/the-duties-of-parents.  It only takes about an hour to read and is a great help to parents who are striving to raise their child “in the way he/she should go” (Prov. 22:6).  The book centers around the following seventeen principles:

1. training your child rightly

2. tenderness, affection, and patience

3. much depends on you

4. consider the soul of your child

5. a knowledge of the Bible

6. a habit of prayer

7. diligence in the public means of grace

8. a habit of faith

9. a habit of obedience

10. always speaking the truth

11. redeeming the time

12. fearing over-indulgence

13. how God trains His children

14. the influence of your example

15. the power of sin

16. the promise of Scripture

17. continual prayer for blessing.

If you need help accessing this free resource, please let one of our pastors know and they will gladly provide you with a copy.
