Ron: Be careful parents. You might disintegrate your child.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: In a sci-fi movie, a disintegration gun makes someone disappear. If parents aren’t careful, they can make their child disappear. Mark had two stepdaughters, 38 and 42 years old, who were still relying on their mother—and now Mark—for financial assistance. He was hoping to retire, but his wife wouldn’t let him because the girls needed money.

Okay, here’s the deal: A good way to make a child dysfunctional is to over function in their space. You make who they are disintegrate. Don’t do that. Let them carry their own load in life or you’ll pay for it for a long time. And so will they. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
