When it comes to parenting, actions speak larger than words. Children learn from watching their parents. However, they are learning bad behavior as well as the good. In this episode of our continuing series on establishing a strong marriage, Dr. Thompson will explain why young married couples must recognize and correct faulty behaviors they have picked up from their parents, before they put a strain on their new family.
Episode Segments:
