Bob: One of the parenting tools that we need to keep in our tool belt is an understanding that our children will receive love differently. We need to be giving love to them/demonstrating love to them according to their love language. But no matter what their love language is, being moms and dads, who are humble enough to acknowledge when we have messed up and to seek forgiveness from our children, that’s so powerful/so important.

Dave and Ann Wilson have been talking today to Dr. Gary Chapman, who has written extensively on the subject of love languages, marriage, parenting. He’s written a book about the language of apology, which they’ve touched on today.

Of course, Dave and Ann have a brand-new book called No Perfect Parents: Ditch Expectations, Embrace Reality, and Discover the One Secret That Will Change Your Parenting. We have copies of Dave and Ann’s book available in our FamilyLife Today Resource Center. If you have not read their latest book, you’ll want to get a copy. Go to FamilyLifeToday.com and order your copy of No Perfect Parents by Dave and Ann Wilson. You can order online at FamilyLifeToday.com; or all to order: 1-800-FL-TODAY is the number; 1-800-358-6329; that’s 1-800-“F” as in family, “L” as in life, and then the word, “TODAY.”

Now, tomorrow, Dave and Ann Wilson are going to probe a subject that I think has become more common in our culture: families, where fear has become a dominant feature. How do we handle that in our family when there is an unreasonable fear that is like a cloud over the whole family? Kevin Thompson joins them to talk about how you can have a fearless family tomorrow. I hope you can be with us for that.

On behalf of our hosts, Dave and Ann Wilson, I’m Bob Lepine. We’ll see you, again, tomorrow for another edition of FamilyLife Today.
