Shepherding a Child's Heart author Tedd Tripp writes:
"Shepherding a Child's Heart is a book about talking to the heart of your child. The things your child says and does flow from the heart. See Prov 4:23 and Luke 6:45."
"I think the big difference between Shepherding a Child's Heart and the Ezzo's material is that they are much more concerned with controlling and constraining behavior, whereas I am far more concerned with the heart issues that push and pull behavior. Prov 4:23."
