Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

Priorities for Parents
by Charles R. Swindoll

My son, if your heart is wise, 
my own heart also will be glad.
Proverbs 23:15

Let me make three practical suggestions to you who are parents:

First, determine your priorities. Ask yourself how high the family rates on your list of involvement. How are your children in particular—just how serious are you regarding time with each? Have you told them or your mate? . . .

Second, record your observations. If a child reveals his or her bents in everyday life, those things are worth writing down. Keep a journal on each child. . . . As you write, pray for wisdom. Ask God to guide your thoughts. Please remember, each child is unique. No comparisons! . . .

Third, share your findings. Children long to know themselves better. They respect your counsel, and will long remember your remarks. Be candid and honest as you help them "see" who they really are.
