You can't force anyone into a relationship, but you can invite them. Julie Williams stays over from last week's podcast to answer some email from listeners. First up is a question about spanking and whether or not it's a good tool for disciplining children. Wayne and Julie both talk about their experiences and perspectives in this area, which have changed greatly over time. They also answer a question about their father/daughter relationship through various ages—both where it worked well, and its failures. They also answer a question about losing that relationship in the teenage years and what parents might do to win back a place in their child's heart.
