  • Our boys were young and my wife was giving me parenting feedback. She said, "Ron, you're a great dad. I love it when you discipline our kids but you should see your face. You're intimidating and they feel rejected." Well, that was hard to hear. But I took it to heart, and added the fruit of gentleness to my discipline. Turns out smiling when saying "no" was far more powerful. But to get there I had to take off harshness and put on gentleness. It's your turn. Add gentleness to who you are today.

Ron, you should see your face.”

Ron: “Ron, you should see your face.”

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

Ron: Well, that’s what my wife said to me. Our boys were young and she was giving me some parenting feedback one day. She said, “Ron, you’re a great dad. I love it when you discipline our kids but you should see your face. You’re intimidating and they feel rejected by you.”

Well, that was hard to hear. But I took it to heart, and tried to then add the fruit of gentleness to my discipline. Turns out being soft and smiling when saying “no” was far more powerful. But to get there I had to take off harshness and put on gentleness. Okay, it’s your turn. Try adding gentleness to who you are today. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
