Contrary to the misguided worldly wisdom that claims each child is born as a blank slate, Dr. James Dobson contends that God gives every boy and girl a unique personality. Some children have enough defiance to equal 10 of their peers. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. Dobson, author of The New Strong-Willed Child, talks to a panel of three formerly exhausted mothers who struggled with their strong-willed children. While they each administered a healthy dose of love, discipline, and prayer, the Lord rewarded their patience and tears with well-adjusted adult children.
If one of your kids seems hard-wired to be more combative and challenging of your authority, don't get discouraged. There is hope! On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson talks with three mothers who candidly share the frustrations and challenges of parenting their "tough as nails" children. You'll hear unflinching stories, and you may see some of yourself or your own experiences as a parent in these illustrations that demonstrate the battle of wills. In their despair, these moms learned to lean hard on the Lord.
Christian parents instinctively know that they’re in a battle with Satan himself for the souls of their children. But the parents of strong-willed children grapple with that spiritual reality more dramatically. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson visits for a third day with three mothers who fasted and prayed and disciplined until they saw victory. Lizz Walker, a 17-year-old, confessed, "I've spent all of my life being strong-willed and wanting to win a battle." God told her, "I want you to be strong-willed for Me!"
