That seemed to be my first clue- not an end-all, one step process for raising Godly children, but a starting place.
Have you ever found yourself in the middle of escalated chaos not knowing how you got there, or how to stop the “drama” from happening again?
I completely disagreed with this treatment, but because I respected my dad greatly, I didn’t say a word about his “cruel” comments. After all, I didn’t have any children, so what did I know?
Sarcasm aside, as parents, one should always ask, “What does this action or attitude look like when my child is 16 or 36?” Because after all, there is no magic day when your child will “wake up” and be a grown up.
