June's newest book is Bonding with Your Child through Boundaries which she wrote in conjunction with Peggysue Wells.In Bonding with Your Child through Boundaries Hunt helps parents understand why boundaries are essential in parenting, sharing bibllically based principles for implementing boundaries, answering frequently asked questions about boundaries such as, "Will boundaries limit my child's creativity?" and "How do I lay a foundation for boundaries to work?""External boundaries are designed to develop internal character," says Hunt. "Kids with character do the right things - not to impress the world but because they've been transformed by a powerful process described in Romans 12:2. Ultimately, parents who let their kids keep getting away with wrong are training them to do wrong."After laying the foundation for the necessity of boundaries, Hunt offers 36 practical, parent-tested "how to" steps for making boundaries work in your family offering insights on everything from anger and aggression, back talk, bullying, cell phone struggles, cheating, chores, disrespectfulness, gossip and tattling, media mania, lying and whining.Hunt approaches each topic with a relatable story, motivations behind the issue, practical boundaries, tips on what to say to your child and most importantly what the Bible has to say about it."When children are secure in who they are - and whose they are - they are better equipped to make good decisions," says Hunt. The Bible says, "Discipline your children, and they will give you peace of mind and will make your heart glad" (Proverbs 29:17 NLT).
I’m a member of the Family Christian Bloggers and they provided me with a free copy of “Bounding with Your Child” for this review.In Bonding with Your Child through Boundaries, June Hunt and PeggySue Wells explored the hidden principles she has discovered in parenting and how setting boundaries truly does help your children. In the first section of the book, the authors looked at “What Are Boundaries All About”? She defined boundaries as “established limits” and they are put into place in order to develop our children’s character. She also shared the dos and don’ts of discipline our children. For example, it’s extremely important to communicate our expectations to our children about how to act and how not to act and there are consequences to misbehaving and rewards if you behave. The book also contained questions and answers to assist readers in setting boundaries.The second section of the book discussed, “Building Beneficial Boundaries”. Some of the topics they explored in this section was, “Bedtime Battles, Biting, Bullying, Cliques, Media Mania, Lying, Peer Pressure, Sexual Curiosity, Stealing, Whining”, and much more. The book chapters are divided up into three sections, “What You Could Do”, “What You Could Say”, and “Wisdom from God’s Word”.One of my favorite chapters was the topic of “Bullying”. June and PeggySue shared that as parents we need to have a zero-tolerance for letting our children belittle someone verbally or harm someone physically. They included helpful signs to watch for in our children who could be bullying someone. They encouraged parents to discover why they are bullying someone else and they revealed the harsh truth that bullying is a learned behavior.
