Ephesians 6:4 instructs, “Do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” Here are some pointers to help.
- Don’t overprotect your children.
You can’t protect your children from everything. It’s inevitable that they will experience some scrapes in life.
- Don’t underprotect your children.
Children need structure to have a sense of security. Begin by implementing “house rules.”
- Don’t compare your children with others.
Every child is different and has his or her own potential. Allow each of your children to develop his or her own uniqueness.
- Do listen to what your kids have to say.
Your children have good ideas. When you listen to them, you are building their self-esteem and worth.
- Do praise your children.
Everyone need affirmation, no matter how young or old.
- Do spend time with your kids.
Relationships aren’t built over the phone. Get involved in your children’s lives. Nothing spells “love” better than time spent with each other.
