I found an interesting article on line titled, “3 Discipline Questions for Christian Kids” by Kim Sorgius. The source is www.notconsumed.com. The intent of the article is to teach our children to make choices, decisions, and behave in light of God and what He has to say to us in His Word. This process may take some time, but in the big picture, it will really pay off! Here are the questions we should ask our children when they need some discipline:
- Who are you pleasing, yourself or God?
- How are you showing love right now?
- What kind of witness or example are you showing?
During these “talks”, we need to remember not to condemn or shame but to guide and direct our children to do what pleases God.
