That's Robbie Castleman's attitude about taking her children to church. This was so helpful to me for times of worship. Instead of viewing my children as in the way of worship, it taught me to bring them along. Instead of segmenting our family in church, we were able to be together. MrsLee, April 5, 2007.

"Daddy, I'd like you to meet my children." That's Robbie Castleman's attitude about taking her children to church. She believes that Sunday morning isn't a success if she has only managed to keep the kids quiet. And she knows there's more to church for kids than trying out their new coloring books. Children are at church for the same reason as their parents: for the privilege of worshiping God. Worship, Castleman writes, is "the most important thing you can ever train your child to do." So with infectious passion, nitty-gritty advice and a touch of humor, she shows you how to help your children (from toddlers to teenagers) enter into worship. In this expanded edition Castleman includes two new appendixes on the important issues of hyperactive children in worship and children's church for seekers. She also provides a study guide for personal reflection or group discussion. More than ever, Parenting in the Pew is essential reading for parents and worship leaders who want to help children make joyful noises unto the Lord.

This is a great resource for parents with the theological philosophy behind why it is important to include children in worship, as well as the nuts and bolts of how to train your child in and for worship. It challenged me to think about the goal of including children in worship (it’s not for them to be quiet, it’s for them to worship and experience God). Some of the recommendations don’t work for a church setting like ours (no church bulletins or hymnbooks), but most of what she talks about can be adjusted or used. I particularly like her recommendations on how to explain and prepare your children for communion and her ideas on how to get even young children to glean knowledge from a long sermon. Reading this book will give you concrete ideas on how to guide your child in worship, and will help you think through the worship experience.

Parenting in the Pew's cover is misleading - the book says no toys in church! :)

I appreciate the message of the book and the ideas for how to help kids truly worship in church instead of just being quiet. It isn't for the lazy - there's a lot to explain so kids understand and are drawn into the experience.

I don't do everything the way Robbie Castleman has, but I really appreciate her insight and thoughtfulness. She has provided a good resource for parents of younger children who are frazzled by Sunday mornings. She has also provided a great resource for parents of older kids who want to connect with and share worship with them.

Now to figure out how to either get my husband interested in reading it or how to convey the information to him briefly so we come at this with the same approach...

It hard to find books especially good books that give a positive , fun, refreshing twist on parenting from a christian view.Every parent regardless to religion shouldgive this book a read

This book really points to the fact that our real goal should be helping our children participate in worship rather than just keep them obedient in the pews. I purchased this book to help with a wiggly 4 year old and have walked away with ways to help my quiet elementary age children participate and not just sit nicely through service.

Wonderful tips for how to engage our children in worship - and some good reminders for us parents too! I can't wait to lead this in an adult Bible study next fall... I highly recommend this book for anyone who has children in church!

This book has been very helpful in getting thew parents in our church to worship with their children. Many of the hints like drawing a picture of the sermon or writing down how many times the preacher said "God" or "Jesus" or "love" were very helpful to keep the children engaged in the sermon.
My wife and I had our first child in June 2011. I am concerned about all apsects of trying to raise my son, but I share with the author a desire for, "their journey of faith to be less frustrating than mine." This little book so gripped me that I read it in one day - which most readers can easily do if they find the time. To my pleasant surprise, it was one of the best books I have read on parenting and kids in general. I look forward to re-reading it, discussing it with others, and trying to apply much of it contents.

One of the major themes of the book is "going to worship" as opposed to just "going to church." We need to be focused on teaching kids to enjoy the privilege of worship and take in the meaningful parts of the service, not just getting them to be quiet for a while so that people think we are "good parents" with "good kids." The author does not sugar coat the struggles and frustrations for parents in this process, but balances it out with touching stories of progress.

One interesting note is that the author cites authors such as Hauerwas and Willimon generally considered in the postliberal, narrative theology, Yale school, etc. that many in Reformed, Lutheran, and evangelical circles might be uncomfortable with on some points. Of course other perspectives would consider this a bonus.

However, any unusual aspects or minor flaws of the book are far, far outweighed by its many strengths. I highly recommend it.
