Parent Minute

Mom and Dad, we’re not kids anymore.

Posted on 10/6/2018 by Greg Yoder

How many times do we have to hear that in order for it to sink in? It’s hard watching our kids grow up and leaving the house, isn’t it? Although it’s a lot easier treating them like adults when they actually LEAVE. But our goal as parents should be to lead them to Christ, help them grow in their faith, and help them get ready to be independent, God-fearing young people. The successful ones either are self-motivated, or Mom and Dad helped them along the way, strategically releasing them to be more independent as they got older. Do you have a plan for that? Chores, outside jobs, bills, saving money, generosity, and discussions about these adult norms will help guide them. Deep breath. You can do it.

Suggested Reading: Luke 14:28
