Parenting 101

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 2:08 PM
The who: parenting is about our children. Not about our child’s actions, necessarily, but about what we as moms do that is in the best interest of our children.

The what: parenting is about guiding our children to maturity and a saving faith in Christ Jesus.

The when: parenting is about knowing when children need what. They need love all the time, encouragement for what they do right, discipline for what they do wrong, and for us to gradually let go as they grow.

The where: parenting is about pointing our children to heaven. When we can give them an eternal perspective of life, we gift them with the ability to focus on Christ in everything they do.

The how: parenting is about using the tools given to us directly through God’s Word and indirectly through others’ experiences.

The why: parenting is about taking care of the gift that God has given us in our children. It is the highest calling that we can have.

Sons are a heritage from the LORD; children a reward from him. Psalm 127:3
