When our children go out on their own, having landed their first job and signed a lease for their first apartment, we hope that we have trained them to: respect authority, think for themselves, drive a car, hold a job, make dinner, pay bills and carry on mutually respectful and loving relationships.

Nobody likes to apologize. It’s embarrassing. We feel ashamed, sad, foolish. It’s tough to get those words out, even if they’re the only way to move beyond the wreckage of a parent-teen conflict and start healing.

My husband and I enrolled our son Tyler in soccer when he was 5. For years we endured early Saturday morning games in the cold and drizzly Northwest weather. I can remember sitting there — shivering, hair dripping, teeth chattering — watching him play. I was miserable, but my husband had been an avid soccer player in his youth Read More…

I’ll never forget the time my parents decided to reverse roles with my brother and me to teach us a lesson. I was 10 and Dick was 8. One evening at dinner, my folks announced that we would be the parents, and they would be the children.They threw themselves into the role-playing. My father, usually a quiet and polite man...

Few tasks are more fulfilling yet more challenging, more thrilling yet more demanding, more rewarding yet more exasperating than fatherhood and the responsibility of being a spiritual leader in the home. For me, being a spiritual leader began with total ignorance. When we brought our first of four babies home, I didn’t have a clue …Read More…

It was a day that forever changed Allison and Bruce’s parenting. After the couple and their dinner guest, Henry Cloud, finished their meal, Bruce fielded a phone call, and Allison left the dinner table to complete some chores. A few minutes later, Henry saw her cleaning up her 14-year-old’s room. He was stunned. “What are you doing?” he said… Read More…

It was a half-roll — not quite the full eye roll, but just enough to push my buttons. I looked at my 12-year-old girl and took a deep breath. “Sami,” I said, “are you giving me attitude?” “Yeah,” she said honestly. “Mom, I just don’t want to spend all day cleaning.” I took another deep breath. I wanted to rattle off the 15 zillion fun things..Read More…
