  • Ask me to wipe the boogers of someone else's child and I get squeamish. But with my kids, I didn't have any problem. There's something about it being your own child that makes the unbearable, bearable. Now, Amy's husband gets upset with her 11-year-old when he's acting goofy but when his son jokes around he laughs with him. Having a tolerance for your own child's boogers is understandable, but this dad had better recognize his bias or it will create resentment. Treat all kids the same.

Ron: In parenting, it’s always good to know your bias.

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

Ron: Maybe you’re like me: ask me to wipe the boogers of someone else’s child and I get squeamish. And nauseous. But when my kids came along I didn’t have any problem doing that. There’s just something about it being your own child that makes the unbearable, bearable.

Now, Amy’s husband gets upset with her 11-year-old when he’s acting goofy and making jokes like kids do but when his son jokes around he laughs with him. Look, having a tolerance for your own child’s boogers is understandable, but this dad had better recognize his bias and keep it under control or it will create resentment and divide his family. Treat all kids the same. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
