To Train Up a Child, first published in 1994, began as a letter to a homeschool mother in answer to her question, "How did you train your children to be so happy and obedient?" Mike did not consider himself to be an author, nor did Debi possess the means or the knowledge to publish a book. They realized that it was a big subject that could not be put into a few pages, so they wrote a book. Friends and neighbors were consulted, gleaning their views and methods of child training. They analyzed how they were influenced by the traditions they inherited from their parents, and they looked at the methods that were unique to their family. Friends and members of their church periodically read and critiqued the manuscript as it grew to book size. Twenty-one years later, To Train Up a Child has sold over 1.2 million copies in twelve languages. TTUAC has been on Amazon's best-seller list several times. This new book has added chapters and several updates. Mike and Debi have received tens of thousands of letters of gratitude and been approached by thousands of young people thanking them for their influence in the way they were raised, their parents having implemented the principles expressed in TTUAC. Mike and Debi are humbled to have played a part in so many young people's lives. There has been no editing to modify their stance on spanking. To the contrary, due to the media attacks, they have expanded and strengthened their arguments for traditional, biblical child training. There are now more than a million TTUAC books circulating in the United States that will continue to stand for traditional, biblical parenting.
Mike and his wife Debi author a free bi-monthly magazine called No Greater Joy, which explores child training, marriage, Bible teaching, and natural remedies.

Editorial Reviews

I highly suspect that the majority of the people reviewing this book haven't even read it. or because their parents were abusive, they think that everyone who spanks their child is abusive as well (striking a child out of anger is abuse-spanking a child for disobedience is not-the difference is thoroughly discussed in the book). I purchased this book expecting to find a manual on how to beat a child with rubber tubing-maybe even the inspiration for A Child Called It based on reviews. Well, I was disappointed but also pleasantly surprised. What I bought as a joke and novelty actually turned out to be an enlightening and valuable advice on disciplining young children. I applied some of the practices in this book immediately, and saw positive changes in my son's behavior the first day.--B. MooreI know you probably get way too much mail, but I just had to write and say THANK YOU, thank you for the updated To Train Up A Child. Wow!! I started reading yesterday and am already half way through. I've read the original at least 10 or 15 times in the past 3 years, but this new version has SO MUCH that clarifies and encourages me as I train my two small children. I love how, in the new book, you consistently emphasize training before the need to discipline arises and speak so often about how parents MUST be involved before they can properly apply the rod. A parent who does not show up to read a book. should not show up to administer a spanking. (pg 94) Wonderful, true, biblical advice. Thank you so much for writing this book. It is SO good and your principles have made such a difference in our family, I just had to write and tell you. I share your materials with every parent I know!--A big thank you from a very appreciative, training mom!Your new chapter in To Train Up a Child is the BEST defense I have ever read on proper training. I have a few favorite quotes from it that I use often. Well done! 'All praise to Him who reigns above in majesty supreme.' Can't wait until we can all be together at our eternal Shindig! What a Day that Will Be!--A devoted reader
