Ron: When a child misbehaves, make sure you lead with love.

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

Ron: Jaylen’s teenage stepson cussed out and intimidated his own mother. Now Jaylen really wanted to unload on him and protect his wife, but he decided to take a different approach. With great compassion and a calm tone, he asked the young man what prompted him to be disrespectful.

You see, he led with genuine love. And that got the young man reflecting on himself, not defensive, and he recognized how out of line he was. His attitude softened and he apologized. And then, and only then, did Jaylen lean across the table, look that young man in the eyes and sternly tell him to never cross that line again. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
