FamilyLife Blended® Minute
Holding Them Hostage
Mom...Dad...are you holding your kids hostage?
About the Guest
Did you hear about the pastor whose sermon was disrupted by a would-be robber who held a gun to a woman's head? He tackled and disarmed him. Well, a lot of Christian co-parents are holding their own kids hostage. Parents when you keep the kids at your house an extra hour or speak poorly about the other home or fail to pay your part of a bill-you are emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually holding your kids hostage. Look, this is not about you. Put the gun down and let the hostage go.
