Parent Minute

You’re so mean, I hate you!

Posted on 2/7/2019 by Greg Yoder

Ooooo. Those are pretty harsh words coming out of your kid's mouth. Whatever age it HAS to be dealt with. But let me encourage you to do what I do when that happens. Ask the question: “What did I do to cause that kind of reaction.” If you’re an emotional person as I am we can sound angry or mean, when the reality is our emotions got the best of us causing us to speak truth – but not necessarily in love. But if that’s NOT the case, we need to confront our kids about their emotional, disrespectful outbursts. Remind them that as human beings we all can let our emotions get out of control, but that’s sin…sin that needs forgiveness, which is why we need a Savior – Jesus Christ. 

Suggested Reading: Proverbs 15:1 Ephesians 4:26-27
