OCTOBER 2013 – Sound Post is host to Jonathan Eggerichs, son of author Emerson Eggerichs, to record the audiobook ‘Love & Respect In The Family.’ From publisher Thomas Nelson, this is a must read or ‘must listen to’ for Christian families. To know more visit: ‘Love & Respect Ministries.’
Author Dr. Emerson Eggerichs.
“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.”
