Children need love. Parents need respect.
It is as simple and complex as that!
When frustrated with an unresponsive child, a parent doesnt declare, "You dont 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 dont respect me." Instead, a child pouts, "You dont love me." A child needs to feel loved, especially during disputes.
But heres 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? Best-selling 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 reader 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 dont. In the Bible, God has spoken specifically to parents on how to parent. This book is about that revelation.
As a researcher, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, who has a PhD in child and family ecology from Michigan State University, garnered the testimonies of thousands of mothers following the release of his New York Times Bestseller, Love & Respect. These moms consistently reported they applied the respect side of the message to their sons with significant effects. Emerson and his wife, Sarah, present the Love and Respect Marriage and Parenting Conferences across the country. Emerson has also spoken to groups from the NFL, NBA, PGA, Navy Seals, and members of congress. He was the senior pastor of Trinity Church in East Lansing, MI for almost twenty years. He and Sarah have been married since 1973 and have three adult children. Emerson also has a BA in Biblical Studies from Wheaton College, an MA in communication from Wheaton College Graduate School, and an MDiv from the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary.
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
- 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

ceemeeMetro Manila, PhilippinesAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Best parenting book for Christian parentsMarch 4, 2014ceemeeMetro Manila, PhilippinesAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My 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.
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.
