By Gary Smalley & John Trent, Ph.D. / Tyndale House
It’s reasonable to want your family to be close and loving, but that desire can be short-circuited by the two sides of love. Love can be too ”hard” (authoritarian, competitive, or insensitive) or too ”soft” (emotional or unwilling to confront). Smalley and Trent suggest that a tendency toward either extreme can be traced to your personality, formative events, and emotional boundaries. They explain how you can balance these factors to achieve true family intimacy. A Focus on the Family book. Paperback.
