We all have a bit of the disease, but no one likes to be controlled, including our spouse and kids. Life can be a whole lot more pleasant around our house when we determine to keep our kids under control, rather than try to control them. Dr. Tim Kimmel gives us the biblical strategy for breaking free from the pain of controlling people and avoiding being a high-controller yourself.
