You really shouldn’t parent your children in only one way…

Give Them Grace

Here are Five Categories of How we Parent our Children:

  1. Management – sometimes children just need to be told what to do
  1. Nurturing – sometimes children simply need hope that there is a God who loves them and has provided everything they need
  1. Training – children need to learn how the gospel applies to the circumstance they’re facing and what an appropriate response should be
  1. Correction – gospel correction reminds us to bring correction to them in the context of what Jesus has already done for them and his great love for them
  1. Promises – children need to be reminded of the promise that He has made if they fail to believe that He is as merciful and good as He says He is.
