Are there any biblical instructions or principles on building relationships between children and non- biological parents? Do's or don'ts? What comes first? A child's respect for the adult or the adult investing time in the child to create a bond and therefore earn the child's respect?? This is the one thing that my DH and I just don't see eye to eye on and it's destroying our marriage. Please, I could really use some honest advice. If more info is needed, please ask!
