    I'm sure you've heard the term and you've probably experienced the result of the phrase. One size fits all. The only thing I have ever experienced where one size really does fit all is with those professional flexible band, major league baseball type ball caps. But in most circumstances, one size does not. And that's true of parenting as well.

    When it comes to the issue of DISCIPLINE, it’s especially true. Not only does discipline need to vary in consideration of age ranges and stages of life varying children are in… each CHILD will have their own unique temperament and personality to consider.

    This episode, we give some general guidelines to think through when it comes to applying discipline in the variety of circumstances you’ll face as a parent.

    What do you think of when you hear the word “discipline?”

    Exercise? Dieting? Punishment or correction?

    It’s a word that certainly has a place in all those contexts… and it’s also a word that comes into play for Christian parents almost daily as they seek to train their kids for godly living.

    Don’t let the difficulties you have potentially experienced in this area make you afraid of being the “bad guy” in your kids’ eyes. You are commissioned and equipped by the God of creation to do this job… and you CAN do it. Listen to learn how we suggest you go about reframing your discipline-mindset to benefit your kids long-term.

    ON THIS EPISODE:
    Recently, my 94-year old mother told me a story about how an old friend of hers dealt with her kids’ misbehavior. According to my Mom (who can tell a story, but seldom makes things up). this friend often got calls from the school that her kids were in the Principal’s office… but every time she did, according to the friend, “It’s their friends that keep getting them in trouble.”

    Does that explanation sound believable to you? Or is the Mom thinking more highly of her kids’ behavior than she ought? Or is she making excuses for bad behavior for some reason?

    We often hear parents excusing their child’s behavior — rudeness, shyness, disobedience, disrespect — all things that should be dealt with appropriately and swiftly. Why do parents do this and what’s the remedy? We’ll cover the issue on this episode.

    Every parent comes into their role as Mom or Dad with NO experience. There’s also no step by step user’s manual to help us get our feet under us. But there are role models we can look to who can give us an idea of what we’re supposed to do as parents.

    Our best role model is God Himself, our loving and perfect Father.

    This episode is designed to help you think through how God parents us, His children, so that you can take the perfect example of a great Father and apply it to your role as a parent.

    God fearing parenting requires that you, the parent, consistently engage with Christ on a personal basis, for yourself. It's not about rules you impose on your kids or values you teach to them... at least not as a first-order thing. You've got to be focusing on your own vibrant relationship with Christ. Today, we're going to introduce you to a topic and a resource that had been one of the most transformational in our lives, along that line.

    If I were to ask you, “Are you're willing to do whatever it takes to equip your kids to be adults who honor and love the Lord?” you'd likely say, “Yes.”

    But what if I asked you this question?

    “Are you willing to do whatever it takes to overcome YOUR OWN fears and insecurities and baggage, so THAT you can best equip them to be that kind of adult?” That’s a more difficult question isn’t it? It’s difficult because it’s not theoretical, like the first one, it’s real-life. It’s one we instantly realize we are answering every day of our lives… and much of the time we answer it from a place of fear… fear of our kids.

    That may sound kind of strange, but there are parents all over the world who seem to be afraid to be the parent, when that's the role that God's given them. This episode, we’re talking about that… and providing you some mindsets and tools to begin moving in a new direction.
