    Thanks for this series!!!
    Clarification: We have a very outgoing 5yo daughter who takes after her mother and my mother (in different ways) — she’s confident, very interested in people of all ages, and loves any chance for an adventure (running an errand with me, going to a party, going to Church, etc). We also have a very shy 3yo, who clings with all get-out to mom and doesn’t want to go anywhere. From about the 25ish min. mark you seem to be suggesting that truly healthy daughters should be like our 3yo? I struggle to see how the character of our older daughter would be any different even if we managed to pour more love into her than we already do. Could it be possible Pastor Wilson that you’re speaking less from Scriptural authority and more from personal experience based on the temperaments God happened to give your kids?
