Joy Solomon, Debra Merritt, Kristen Walker, and Lizz Walker.

Host: Dr. James Dobson

August 04, 2021

If one of your kids seems hard-wired to be more combative and challenging of your authority, don't get discouraged. There is hope! On today's edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson talks with three mothers who candidly share the frustrations and challenges of parenting their "tough as nails" children. You'll hear unflinching stories, and you may see some of yourself or your own experiences as a parent in these illustrations that demonstrate the battle of wills. In their despair, these moms learned to lean hard on the Lord.
