In this special episode, I sit down with my wife to discuss a book we are reading called “Shepherding a Child’s Heart” written by Tedd Tripp. We discuss the general premise of this book, which is that all of our actions are controlled by our heart and children are best corrected by dealing with the heart issue, not the behavior.
