A Good Parent is…



A Good Parent…

Is loving but firm.


This loving and being a disciplinarian thing is a tough place to be in.

Parents are parents and they have to be and act like a parent.

That means you have to be strict and have rules and expect them to be followed.

The greatest thing you can do for your children is to be firm with them.

We are seeing a generation of children that think they are entitled to, well just about everything. The greatest word your kids can hear from you is “No”.

But that “no” should be covered in the love that comes from your heart.

I know that your cute little child will come up to you and bat those beautiful eyes and expect you to cave in.

It is a tough place to be in but be firm.

Of course there is a balance that must be maintained.

Each of your kids needs to be treated differently and you are the judge of how you should be firm and flexible with each of your children.

Remember your are raising this little ones to survive in a scary world that will treat them harshly if you don’t help them deal with it before they get out there on their own

Love them but be firm in the way you train them up.


Watch for the rest in this series on what makes a good Parent.
