Summer vacation, graduation and the long lazy days of summer. For many, this is a time to spend more time with family – the question is do we as adults ever take time to observe and learn from the kids in and around our lives? What do they teach us about life? About choices? Innocence? Ourselves? Jesus’ own words indicate that we are to become like children to gain entrance to the kingdom! What does that mean? Stay with us as we open up what promises to be an informative and delightful conversation about children and the incredible lessons we can learn from them!
Children – they are so sweet, adorable and predictable when they are infants – their needs are obvious and so caring for them takes an obvious path. Then something happens – they start to grow and develop a personality, a temperament, and preferences and suddenly what was once predictable now becomes more of a mystery and an adventure. So, what rights do children have? What rights do parents have? How do you know what kind of discipline should be used? How do you know where to set limits and boundaries? Stay with us as we discuss children, rights, discipline and the Bible!
Raising children...not only is it a full-time job, it is a full-time job whose outcome will largely contribute to the fruitage of that child’s life. Not only that, it is a full-time job with great cost and sacrifice attached to it, not just in a monetary sense, but in a personal sense as well. It is a full-time job whose rewards are often not seen until many many years later. To top it off, there is the peer pressure to parent as others do and the choices of methods are as numerous as there are ways to cook an egg. Stay with us as we look into that scary world of parenting and try to find sense and guidance from our favorite book, the Bible.
