However, each one of you [husbands] also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.

~Ephesians 5:33 (NIV)~

If you are like me, you may think of the “love and respect” instructions in Ephesians 5:33 as only applicable to marriage. But as Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, author of Love & Respect, discussed in a recent interview on The Channelmom Show, these wise instructions can also be applied to how we as parents relate to our children. Check out the video below to learn how you as a parent can show honor and respect to your son, whether he’s a kindergartner or a teenager.

Also, I’d love to encourage the moms out there to stop by The Channelmom Show’s website and check out the videos and resources offered by the show’s founder and host, Jenny Dean Schmidt.  Jenny is passionate about celebrating motherhood and encouraging moms. Through The Channelmom Show, she aims “to remind EACH mom that God treasures her significant role as a mother.”
