“Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)
When you become a parent, you become entrusted by God to raise one or more of his children, which is no small task! And I don’t know about you, but I feel absolutely bombarded with discipline advice that leaves me feeling like a D+ parent, at best.
But what if instead of trying to force other parents’ rules on our family, we simplified discipline into a few principles to help guide children in a way that fits our family’s needs? These guidelines won’t tell you the rules you should or shouldn’t set for your kids, but instead equip you to implement rules that you decide on.
It’s time to stop taking advice from others and start focusing on how God is asking you to raise your children. Here are 10 ways to do just that.
