Parenting is hard and rewarding. There is a lot of sacrifice involved and if I knew what I knew now when I began having children, I would have waited a lot longer.
To be a great parent you have to be a great Christ follower. Raising children takes wisdom and patience, much of which comes with maturity not age.
Over the years as I’ve improved my character, through relationship with God, I’ve become a better mom.
By better, I mean more patient and wiser mom.
I’ve been a mom for over 20 years now and in that time I’ve a learned quite a bit about parenting I’d love to share with you in today’s video.
For your notes, I listed the key points below. I hope you enjoy this video and gain some valuable tips to help you parent with a little more patience and a lot less frustration.
1. Parent in with love, not fear.
1 John 4:18 KJV
2. Understand the essence of parenthood.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 KJV
When we are loving our children the way God intended, that often means, suffering, self discipline and sacrifice for the benefit of our kids.
3. Get angry at the sin, not the child.
Correct with love.
Determine whether your child has sinned or is being immature.
