Love & Respect in the Family

The Transforming Power of Love and Respect Between Parent and Child
Product Description

The secret to parenting success is out! Children need love, parents need respect. It's as simple and complex as that.

Bestselling author Dr. Emerson Eggerichs has studied family dynamics for more than 30 years, earning a Ph.D. in Child and Family Ecology. As a senior pastor for nearly two decades, he builds on a foundation of strong biblical principles, walking the reader through an entirely new way to approach the family dynamic.

When frustrated with an unresponsive child, a parent doesn't declare, "You don't love me." Instead, the parent asserts, "You are being disrespectful right now." A parent needs to feel respected, especially during conflicts. When upset a child does not whine, "You don't respect me." Instead, a child pouts, "You don't love me." A child needs to feel loved, especially during disputes. But here's the rub: An unloved child or teen negatively reacts in a way that feels disrespectful to a parent. A disrespected parent negatively reacts in a way that feels unloving to the child. This dynamic gives birth to the FAMILY CRAZY CYCLE.

This book teaches you to:

  • See love and respect as basic family needs
  • Stop the Family Crazy Cycle of conflict
  • Parent in six biblical ways that energize your children
  • Discipline defiance and overlook childishness
  • Be the mature one since parenting is for adults only
  • Become a loving parent in God's eyes, regardless of a child's response

Based on what the Bible says about parenting, this book focuses on achieving healthy family dynamics. Dr. Eggerichs offers unprecedented transparency from his wife and three adult children, who share wisdom gained from the good, the bad, and the ugly of their family life. It's all here in this eye-opening exploration of the biblical principles on parenting that can help make families function as God intended.
