Love and Respect in the Family by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, Cymplified!

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.

Love and Respect in the Family provides a blueprint on how to parent God’s way and I would definitely take note of that. I also like that this book talks about the Biblical differences of boys and girls, and how to parent them according to their different levels of needs for love and respect.
I would definitely recommend this book to Christian parents like me because of its basis on the Bible and how it presents parenting as Christ-centered rather than child-centered.


Note: I received a complimentary copy of Love and Respect in the Family from I was not required to write a positive review, but did anyway because I loved the book. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

  1. Respect and love are the other two important things to teach to our kids. base on my experience I saw some parents not being respected by their kids it is so sad.

  2. Hi Ms. Ceemee, based on your review this book is really good. I’m going to check out the link in case I can avail a free copy too. Sometimes I feel guilty in parenting my kid, you know those mommy guilt feelings that we usually have when something goes wrong. I guess this book will help, enlighten me or guide me somehow. Sure we can have the Bible for reference, but sometimes we need someone to lay and explain the points to us further, just like this book. Thanks!

  3. I just reviewed this book, too, and I feel very blessed by reading it. I learned so many Biblical principles that make a lot of sense when taken into the context of the home. This one I’ll surely treasure.

  4. This book is full of very useful knowledge of how parents want respect and children need love. Without love children react without respect, without respect parents act without love. Sounds confusing but it makes perfect sense.Tthis book ties in real life stories from the Eggerichs personal family life

    1. They are free for me to review, I have to submit my review within 90 days (I think) before I could review a new one. I think for international bloggers they give out ebooks. Before it was a hard copy, now just the ebook.

  5. I am excited to get a hold of this book! Thanks for sharing this Ceemee…I agree that as Christian parents it is our utmost duty, priority and purpose to teach our children about God.:)
