But is it possible to love our kids too much? Today’s Guest Tim Clinton will help us find the answer.
Our guest is Dr. Tim Clinton, author of the book “Loving Your Child Too Much.” Dr. Clinton is president of the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC).
The term “love” is one of those words that the devil has had a field day with. He’s used our postmodern world, Hollywood and Madison Ave. to grossly pervert its true meaning.
When you buy into a false premise, then any philosophy, ideology or even theology can look like it makes sense.
Consequently, there are a lot of otherwise great parents who are loving their kids in a way that isn’t exactly congruent with the true biblical definition and intention of the term.
