Yesterday, I completed the four volumes of Thomas Houston's Works: Doctrinal and Practical (these do not include all Houston's works, as several of his books and pamphlets were not included). I had been reading them on and off for years, but the last book I read was the below-linked work on Parental Duties (1844). When reading it, I found myself asking "Who is sufficient for these things?" Being a parent really is an enormous task. Nonetheless, it contains a lot of good practical help without being legalistic (a rare mix in such books). Here is a stand-alone copy of the tract in question. The Divine Commendation of Abraham, or, Parental Duties.
