Children need love and parents crave for respect, it’s as simple and complicated as that! Love and respect are vital in a family and this book tackles both aspects based on truths from the Bible. Love and Respect in the Family is based on Dr. Emerson Eggerichs’ and his wife’s parenting experiences and inputs from their children so that readers could get insights on the lessons they have learned and mistakes they have made.
My purpose as a parent is to lead my children to Jesus Christ. A parenting book that is based on God’s Word is a good guide to help me achieve that purpose. I have learned that as an adult, I am mostly responsible for stopping the Family Crazy Cycle, which is when children feel unloved, they tend to behave disrespectfully and when parents feel disrespected, they tend to react in an unloving manner. And then the cycle seems to never end. This book helps parents be proactive in stopping this cycle and therefore, refrain from exasperating our children.
Ephesians 6:4 Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
