Shalom in the Home Wants Your Home

Shalom in the HomeDr Phil better get out his “A-Game” because new television therapist Rabbi Shmuley Boteach is red hot right now and moving up in the ratings with TLC’s Shalom in the Home. It’s good stuff.  Rabbi Shmuley is not made for TV therapist.  He’ll tell you like he sees it - but not in the Dr. Phil type of way.  He’s an Oxford-trained theologian and philosopher who’s written a dozen-plus books on relationships and families and counseled thousands of people through all of life’s challenges. The show now has video podcasts available for your “Oy-Pod.”

Here are some of his Shmuleyisms:

  • You can’t be a good parent without being a good spouse.
  • There are two kinds of parental love: the love you give your kids, and the love you give your spouse. Kids with loving spouses grow up believing in romantic love.
  • It’s your kid’s job to resist. It’s your job to impose your will.
  • Good discipline is just another form of love.
  • Ten percent of life is what happens; the other 90 percent is what you do about it.
  • Many of us parent out of fear - fear of alienating our kids, fear of making the wrong choice - but fear never leads to the right destination.
  • You cannot fix your children without also fixing yourself.

Shalom in the Home airs Mondays at 10 ET/PT on TLC. They’re also looking for families to be on future episodes.  You can find an application on the Shalom in the Home Web site.
