Love and Respect Ministries says this about Dr. Emerson Eggerichs’ Love & Respect in the Family: “Psychological studies affirm what the Bible has always said: children need the love that God tells us to give them (Titus 2:4). And parents desire the respect that Scripture plainly says is our due (Exodus 20:12). Love & Respect in the Family gives practical guidance to help break the Crazy Cycle of family conflict and replace it with a healthy, energizing rhythm. Based on what the Bible says to parents on parenting, this book focuses on achieving healthy family dynamics.”
I highly recommend this book! While I acknowledge my own personal bias I believe this book could be an excellent tool for families of all ages and stages; I see the value of Dr. Eggerichs analysis and recommendations as much in my relationship with my own often-headstrong preteen daughter as I do with my grandma and her children and grandchildren.
I can honestly say about this book the best thing, in my opinion, anyone can say about any book: it changed me for the better. While Dr. Eggerichs isn’t always 100% spot on (the constant clips of Bible verses sometimes feel stretched) I believe readers who open their minds and hearts to his message will be able to better reflect God’s love and plan in their families. If you find you don’t need this book at all—even for encouragement—I’d love to read your book on families.
