Respect and Obedience

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 11:24 AM
I'm reading a new book - Parenting by The Book: Biblical Wisdom for Raising Your Child by John Rosemond - and agree with one (a lot, really) of his premises. If your child does not obey you, it's because your child does not respect you. Wow! How powerful is that? If we don't teach our children to respect us, they will not learn to respect others or themselves. This will cause major relationship problems throughout their lives, and make it almost impossible for them to submit to God's authority and have a real relationship with Him. Not a new concept, but a renewed one.

P.S. Thanks to my fabulous, real friend Jennifer for the book. You're the best girl! Thanks for respecting me enough to bless me with this gift.

P.P.S. You can find this book at Amazon for around $6
