Loving Your Wife
How do I love my wife?
Maintaining Close Relationship with Your Adolescent
We have three young children ages 6, 9 and 11. We want to do whatever we can to make sure that these great relationships we now enjoy will carry over into their adolescence. Any suggestions?
Making an Impact in Your Teens Life
Since our two children have become teenagers our marriage and family life has become much more discouraging and difficult. Sometimes it seems like we have absolutely no impact on what our kids think, say or do. How can we make sure that we’re making a difference?
Managing Adolescent Withdrawal
Our teenage son has become more withdrawn and isolated in the past few months. Is this normal? Is it something to be concerned about? How can we help?
Marriage after Children
After spending years praying for a child, God gave us a wonderful little girl. Unfortunately, our precious daughter has changed our marriage in some unexpected ways that have become scary for us. Any suggestions on how to navigate these new waters?
Marriage and Life after a Child
It’s been six months since the long-awaited and much-anticipated birth of our first child. We love the Lord, we love each other and we love our precious son, however, we’ve never had a harder time in our marriage. Is this normal and what can we do to make things better?
We’re both frustrated by our lack of quality family mealtimes together. Our three kids are 11, 14 and 16 and our family meals, when we’re able to have them, are rarely enjoyable. Any suggestions?
My soldier husband has been stationed in Iraq for two years, and he’s set to come home soon. While I'm excited to see him, I’ve gotten used to handling decisions and our house on my own—like when I was single. What can I do to make the readjustment easier?
Modeling Empathy For Your Children
We have two wonderful teenagers but at times are concerned with the lack of compassion and empathy they have for some of their friends or those less fortunate. Are there some things we can do to help them become more empathetic?
Modeling Your Faith For Your Teens
My wife and I are alarmed by the reports we’ve heard of the number of teenagers raised in the church but who abandon their faith after high school. Should we be concerned and what can we do as parents to make sure this doesn’t happen to our children?
I've been going through a rough patch with my 10-year-old son. I love him, but to tell you the truth, sometimes I just don't like him. And I definitely don't understand him. I'm generally even-tempered and happy, but he has bouts of moodiness that make no sense to me. When I ask him what's going on, he just clams up. What can I do to get inside his head?
I grew up with two sisters, and I have two daughters and a son. I know a lot about raising daughters but not about raising a boy. What does every boy need from a mom? What are some specific ways that I can best meet the unique needs of my son?
Moving with Children
We just moved to a new town. My daughter will be in 6th grade; my son will be in 9th grade. How can I help them adjust?
My 5 Year-old Kissed a Student at School: Should I be Worried?
Our kindergarten son recently got in trouble at school for kissing a girl. Should we be worried?
It’s like all I notice are the things that he does that frustrate, disappoint, or hurt me. How can I change this?
We just had a baby. Now my husband says that I'm not interested in him anymore and that I love our child more than I love him. I'm just overwhelmed and frazzled. How do I make him understand?
I know that the Bible says divorce is wrong, but what about a separation to get your spouse's attention? Ever since our daughter was born four years ago, my husband has left all child care responsibilities (feeding, bathing, dressing, taking to sitter, etc.) and housework to me.
Newborns and Intimacy
How can couples achieve intimacy with a newborn in the house? How can we keep the spark going?
My husband and I weren’t Christians when we married. But I'm a Christian now, and he isn’t. He doesn’t like that I believe in God. I’d love for my husband to accept Jesus. What should I do?
Not Feeling Love
I do not feel “in love” with my mate, what should I do?
