“What would you say are the biggest pitfalls in parenting?”
In the conclusion of our series, The Power of Parenting, we will take a look a what I think are the four biggest pitfalls in parenting. In today’s podcast and post I will share how easy it is to wade into the quicksand of four common quagmires. Since none of us are perfect, none of us will ever have a perfect track record. Instead, our goal is to catch ourselves and make the necessary mid-course corrections.
Join me now as we take one last look at our parenting philosophies and how to lead our families out of some very common challenges
“How involved should a parent be in directing a child’s purpose?
In today’s podcast and post we continue in our series, The Power of Parenting, with our fifth installment where we explore a common Proverb and learn the difference between a child’s pattern and their purpose.
Join me now as we learn to see beyond merely entertaining our kids and discover why so many people grow up without a sense of purpose.
You may have heard the proverb “Spare the rod, spoil the child,” but is that really a biblical endorsement for corporal punishment?
In today’s podcast and post we look at the difference between punishment and discipline. I will use this topic to create an inward as well as an outward line of sight into the biggest problems of life.
Join me now as we see beyond spanking our kids and discover how wisdom creates the necessary nuance which can transform our punishment into discipline and change the world.
“Do you know the difference between Authority and Influence? If so, do you know when to use them as parents?
In part 3 of our series, The Power of Parenting, we explore the single greatest bit of parenting advice that I have ever received and I will show you how it is at the epicenter of every parenting fail.
Join me now as we learn to see beyond parental authority and why parents should gradually be using less and less of it.
“We know parents are responsible for their children, but does that mean parents own their kids?”
In today’s podcast and post we continue with our series on the Power of Parenting with a second philosophical consideration which dramatically alters how we parent. Are children a parent’s prized possession, or are parents entrusted to be stewards of what ultimately does not belong to them?
Join me now as we see beyond our underlying parenting philosophies and learn how to bring healing to our children, our family, and our world.
“Have you ever considered the moment of your conception?”
Today we begin a series on the Power of Parenting with a look at the moment of conception. I will ask some unusually difficult questions which will bring into the light our underlying parenting philosophies.
Join me now as we see beyond our physical conception and gain a glimpse at the ethos and pathos through which we enter the world.
