Complaining again?

Posted on 9/10/2017 by Greg Yoder

Recently, I had a mom tell me, “My kids care TOO much. They’re always pointing out flaws in people and wanting to fix it. Should I try to change this behavior? What kid likes to be ‘fixed’?” You know, sometimes “fixing” people can be a learned behavior. Do YOU try fixing people? The question I had for this mom was, “Did you ask your kids how they’d like it if people complained about their imperfections? How would they like it if their friends came to them wanting to fix all of their issues?” The most important thing is to point your kids to Scripture. Jesus was pretty critical of the Pharisees’ hypocrisy. But, it was always truthful and ultimately loving. Read Matthew 23. Then, encourage your kids to love.

Suggested Reading: Matthew 23
