The Respect Parents Desire, The Love Children Need
Love & Respect in the Family is packed full of completely new content…cover to cover. It is the book people have been asking Dr. Eggerichs to write for years.
When children feel unloved, they react to parents in ways that feel disrespectful. And when parents feel disrespected, they react to children in ways that feel unloving. Round and round it goes on what we call the Family Crazy Cycle. This book helps families break the cycle of family conflict and replace it with a healthy, energizing rhythm.
Emerson waited 35 years to write on parenting so his own adult children could share wisdom gained from the good, the bad, and the ugly of their family life. With unprecedented transparency, Emerson shares about the trauma of his own childhood as well.
When he and his wife Sarah (also a child of divorce) became parents, they turned to God's Word to discover His parenting plan for their family. It's all here in this eye-opening exploration of the Biblical principles on parenting that can help make families function as God intended.
