Bonding with Your Child Through Boundaries
Boundaries sound uncomfortable. So how can they benefit your parenting? Today we are going to answer that question and give you some tips on child rearing.
What sorts of things does a child need? Look at the following passage:
Psalm 78:2 – 8 I will open my mouth in a parable; …things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might, and the wonders that he has done. He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers to teach to their children, that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments…
That’s such a lovely passage, which shows the importance of passing on our faith. We long for our children to follow God because living in sin will hurt them. If only we could follow a recipe and turn out perfect kids every time, but it’s not that easy. Instead, it’s important to stay on our knees and to ask for guidance from wise counselors.
June Hunt and Peggy Sue Wells have a new book which offers help, Bonding with Your Child Through Boundaries. June laid the foundation with sound teaching from the Word, and Peggy Sue added her experience as the mother of seven.
