I agree it is hard as I have also fallen into the trap of because I said so.

My relationship with my mum has some of this and I think it is because she was almost always available for chat especially straight after school.
Excellent on all the above, Kathryn!

My wife and I recently dedicated our daughter in church and we were given this book from out pastor. We have been reading it together, a chapter every night. We both are really enjoying and learning a lot from it. We have already been implementing the things Tedd Tripp is teaching.
