Dick will speak about how living in fear does not help bring healing to our situation with our Prodigal"
Love and Fear are probably the two most important words we experience in parenting. When we experience a Prodigal, alienated or an estranged child, fear tends to dominate and high-jack our emotions during this time.
We will talk about how fear in parenting can teach us many things and in fact can move us forward to be a better parent. We will also talk about how fear can cause us to make very bad decisions during this difficult time. Ultimately, fear can escort me to love and set me free in my parenting.
