Emerson and Jonathan continue this important topic in part 2 this week, including adding a third component of apathy. What is the Issue? Children need to honor parents and show this in their respectful attitude and obedient actions. However, many parents do not always feel respected nor obeyed so they seek methods that will motivate the child to be respectful and obedient. How do we deal with this Issue? There are right ways of dealing with this and wrong ways.

Join Emerson and Jonathan this week as they discuss Emerson's most recent book, Mother & Son: The Respect Effect, a book that Emerson sees as an encyclopedia of information that a mom can turn to during various moments of conflict with her son. In this episode three topics are discussed: The Message of Respect is unique compared to the message of love; The Outcome of Respect is unique according to mothers; and The Thirst for Respect is unique in boys compared to girls.
Many of us look at the things in ourselves that we do not like and at the negative reactions from people we do not like, and we wonder, Do these problems exist in my life because of my parents? If they had been better parents, or had treated me better, then surely I’d be a better person with fewer personal and interpersonal problems, right? Join Emerson and Jonathan this week as they discuss this important issue.
Emerson recently saw the movie "War Room" and came away thinking about the topic of prayer and reflecting on the legacy of prayer in his family. Emerson believes the prayers of his grandmother, whom he never knew, as well as another godly woman, impacted his family significantly. Praying for our spouse, children, and others is something many of us are missing out on. The impact can be significant!
Emerson and Jonathan continue the discussion of discipline when parenting in part 2 of this series.

Through looking at intent and discussing never disciplining above or below the "crime," two difficult categories of discipline are examined.
In this week’s episode, Emerson and Jonathan discuss ways of seeking to empathically understand your child without compromising your calling as a parent.

Emerson and Jonathan discuss the Family Rewarded Cycle, the final cycle from Love and Respect In The Family. When parenting, what ultimately matters is an individual's relationship with God. Emerson explains how to see and relate to one's children apart from their response or performance, all in the context of an eternal view.
