Decoding the Prodigal Child Epidemic with Psychologist Dr. Doug Weiss

GettrGab

Prodigal children are everywhere, but you are not to blame. Raising children to become like Christ, does not absolve parents from the chance that they may someday have a son or daughter who goes astray. Dr. Doug Weiss is the author of Prodigal Parent Process, a book and DVD series that provides support and wisdom for parents of prodigals. God gives free will to each child, Dr. Weiss shares, which means even the most perfect parent can end up with a kid who rejects Christ. Parents can be freed from the guilt and shame and protect their marriage when a child breaks their heart. This Christian psychologist reveals it’s not about trying to bring a prodigal home, but about processing what happened and understanding that we don’t have control over our child’s actions.
