Family Life Radio. A ministry where you can experience God’s intentional love.
Take Your Life in Christ to New Heights!
As you strive to be an intentional parent, taking a step back and thinking about your interactions with your children will give you valuable insight.
Children will test your resolve, patience and stamina. Yet, we are grateful for them. God’s Word says, “children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward.” (Psalm 127:3 NKJV).To stay sharp and effective, you need to schedule time to reflect on your parenting actions, the reactions of your children and be prepared to hit the “reset” button.The philosopher Socrates observed that “the unexamined life is not worth living.” A powerful thought, but self-examination is tough and often emotionally unpleasant. That’s why you must make it intentional.
Set aside a specific time to reflect. Put it on your calendar, and treat it as your most important appointment. Be sure to schedule your time in a quiet location where you will not be disturbed.
Ask yourself – and answer honestly – questions about your parenting. Which parenting techniques were most effective with your children? Did you dispense love and correction in appropriate proportions? What were the triggers that caused you to lose control?
Develop a list of objectives and rate yourself weekly on scale of 1 to 10, with 1 meaning, “This was a complete struggle,” and 10 meaning, “I did this one exceptionally well.” Your list might include these objectives:
Evaluation, adjustments and resets are critical aspects of parenting. Make sure you don’t neglect them.
How has hitting the reset button been helpful to you? We’d love to hear from you. Post your comments below.
