It’s Babywise Blog Network (BFBN) Week! All week, we’ll be featuring blog posts from other Babywise-friendly blogs. The schedule is as follows:

 

Today, Maureen from Childwise Chat is talking about the why behind putting marriage first. She has a list of great quotes from the Ezzo’s on why they stress putting marriage first. A great one she shares is:

“We know the tragedy that can befall a family when basic principles of parenting are violated. We have counseled mothers and fathers who, with the best of intentions, started their parenting with love and nurturing only to see their dreams of a beautiful family reduced to a nightmare of survival…. There are two related evils that threaten successful parenting and lead to the demise of the family. The first is downplaying the significance of the husband-wife relationship in the parenting process, and the second is falling into the trap of child-centered parenting,” (Growing Kids God’s Way, p. 31).
