Parent Minute

Should I admit that I sinned to my kids?

Posted on 4/26/2019 by Greg Yoder

Yes! Absolutely! Aaron is a pastor and says, “A parent should repent to their kids.” He’s right. As my wife and I were raising our kids, we made our share of mistakes. In disciplining our kids, I came to realize that when I confessed my sins to my kids, they were more prone to confess theirs. Aaron says, “A lot of Christian kids grow up knowing that their parents are sinners, but never hear their parents confess it.” If we appear holier than our kids and above wrong, it’ll push them away—perhaps preventing them for seeing their need of a Savior. Aaron adds, “One of the best ways to teach our children the gospel is to show them our need for it.” Great words, Aaron.

Suggested Reading: Proverbs 28:14 James 5:16 1 John 1:9
