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.
How is it different than other books on parenting?
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.
Love & Respect in the Family teaches you to:
- Stop the Family Crazy Cycle of conflict
- Parent in six Biblical ways that energize your children
- Be the mature one since parenting is for adults only
- Work as a team, according to the gender of each child
- Become a loving parent in God's eyes, regardless of a child's response
"With the best of my ability, when it comes to the Biblical topic of parenting, I have tried to be an ambassador for the kingdom of Christ. I believe that as a pastor and teacher, I have a responsibility to rightly represent Christ's platform when it comes to marriage and parenting. I know that I have to give an account before Him on that final day, and I'm very aware of the fact that the apostle James says that those who teach will receive a stricter judgment. This is less about selling a bestseller and more about rightly representing the heart of Christ to parents. I happen to believe that when we honor Him, He will honor us!"
