The second part of Dr. Beeke’s Puritan Child Rearing teaching series has been posted.

Listen Here

As with the first, it is packed with thought provoking and challenging information for today’s families. It is interesting how different from today’s views of the family were those of the Puritans. There is so much we can learn from them as we navigate modern society.

Here are a few of the points that I really appreciated:

  1. Salvation and Godliness were the main purpose of education.
  2. The father was expected to lead family worship and catechize his children.
  3. Discipline was to be balanced and designed to break the will but not the spirit.
