BOISE, Idaho, April 26 /Christian Newswire/ -- Alec Baldwin's shocking verbal assualt against his 11-year-old daughter, has brought strong condemnation from the leader of a national movement to restore Father/Daughter relationships.
David Barrett, co-author (with his 21-year-old daughter Elysse) of the book, "Fathers and Daughters: Raising Polished Cornerstones," says of Baldwin's behavior:
"The recent release of the ranting and raving voice message left by Alec Baldwin for his daughter, Ireland, serves as a stark reminder to all of us fathers of our crucial role in the lives of our daughters. Fathers in all family situations, whether intact homes or homes that have suffered the damaging blows of divorce, need to step up as the positive influence and guide God has purposed them to be. No child should have to suffer the verbal attack and humiliation that was dished out by Mr. Baldwin. Unfortunately, however, this rant is far too common in far too many of our homes in America.
"If there has ever been a time when our children, especially our daughters, need a strong, positive, respectful example from their fathers of what it means to be a real man, it is now. I strongly encourage fathers to seriously assess their relationships with their daughters. Get your eyes off yourself and your wants and set them upon your daughter and her needs."
Co-author, Elysse Barrett says, "As a daughter, I am sickened and grieved by the message Alec Baldwin left for his daughter. It is reprehensible for any father to treat their daughter in such a disrespectful and mean-hearted manner. Words like these can wound and damage a young girl for a lifetime. My heart goes out to his daughter, Ireland, and I pray she will know the unconditional love of her Heavenly Father, and eventually the restoration of her relationship with her father."
In order to facilitate this movement toward restoration, in addition to their book, David and Elysse, have launched a website with a forum for fathers and daughters to discuss their relationship and receive Biblical counsel. http://www.PolishedCornerstones.com
As Father's Day approaches, David and his daughter Elysse are trusting that this troubling situation with Mr. Baldwin and his daughter will lead to a new awareness of the importance of these vital Father/Daughter relationships.
