Love and Respect in the Family: The Transforming Power of Love and Respect Between Parent and Child | [Emerson Eggerichs]

Love and Respect in the Family: The Transforming Power of Love and Respect Between Parent and Child

Children need love. Parents need respect. It is as simple and complex as that! 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.

Publisher's Summary

Children need love. Parents need respect. It is as simple and complex as that! 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." So how is one to break out of this cycle?

Bestselling author Emerson Eggerichs has studied the family dynamic for more than 30 years, having his Ph.D. in Child and Family Ecology. As a senior pastor for nearly two decades, Eggerichs builds on a foundation of strong biblical principles, walking the listener through an entirely new way to approach the family dynamic. For instance, God reveals ways to defuse the craziness with our children from preschooler to teen, plus how to motivate them to obey and how to deal with them when they don't. In the Bible, God has spoken specifically to parents on how to parent. This audiobook is about that revelation.

    "Excellent content...fair delivery"
    Where does Love and Respect in the Family rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The only reason I gave the performance a 2 was because the narrator is so monotone I had a difficult time listening to him. Jonathan Eggerichs doesn't have the inflection and variety that his dad does. Which was disappointing to me since I had a higher expectation going into this. Regardless, as I said in the headline...the material that Dr. Eggerichs presents is awesome! I highly recommend the content of his book!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    See my previous comments.

    "Most Effective Book Yet"

    I enjoyed the original Love and Respect but found it was even easier to absorb from the perspective of a parent - and to then use it as a spouse. As a parent it took me out of the position of my own hurts and made me feel responsible while providing some of the best tools I've ever picked up. Looking at it as a spouse then became so much clearer.

    Thank you!

    "Eye Opening!"

    This book opened my eyes to what parenting is really about. I am so glad I read this while my children are little and I am eager to begin implementing these principals in our lives.
