I don’t deserve the grace and mercy of Christ’s love any more than my son deserves or needs a gaming computer. My son like all 11 year old boys is learning to work on impulse control and following directions. He has a habit of forgetting to turn off the iPad at the allotted time.
Even with his struggles, we bought him a gaming computer for those 20 minutes of daily game play. Yes, I am sure that some days will be more of a struggle than others, but his father and I want him to know that we value his interests and support his dreams.
Everyday I fail, but Christ continues to see past my faults and blesses me with the gift of life. How can I not extend the same spirit of giving to the child I created.
Connect With Your Tribe
Dont’t positive parent alone. If you find yourself being influenced by friends and family to punish in ways that conflict with your beliefs, pick up the phone and call or schedule a play date with like minded friends.
Talking with someone whose philosophy is similar can help you remain true to your Positive Parenting beliefs.
