The Blessing Is Our Job
About the Guest
In his book, The Blessing, Dr. John Trent says it's our job to be a blessing to others. Well, how do you give a blessing when you're afraid it will condone a child's misbehavior? Consider the alternative: not sharing how much you value your child is never going to encourage them to make different choices. They have to know they are loved even when you set a boundary or disapprove of their behavior. Especially when you disapprove of their behavior! Love and boundaries are best served together.
We love our kids. But we don’t always like them.
