Whether you have kids now or will, every person knows that parents have a massively powerful affect on their children’s lives. You desire a great relationship with your kids, right? You desire a future of close friendship and relationship with them as they become adults. It’s vital to recognize that you are building that future even now, when they are young.
Parenting is one of the most important things you will ever do. And yet, many parents feel like failures, and every parent knows they have made mistakes. Lisa and I are no exception. We want to encourage you: Don’t look at your mistakes as the end but as the beginning of growth, maturity, and change.
The parenting path that leads to damaged relationships and damaged children is when we don’t change. Sometimes we’re busy, sometimes we are distracted, sometimes we just don’t want to change. But, remember, whatever you plant grows. The decisions you are making today are paving the road to the future you will have with your children.
If we’re honest, we all know we have made mistakes with our children and those who don’t yet have kids suspect they will too. That’s why Lisa and I tackle 5 discipline mistakes wise parents have learned to avoid in this new episode of FAITHFUL LIFE podcast. Click the link and join us as we discuss getting focused on upping our game as parents and on winning the hearts of our children.
