    In this episode of At Home with the Beveres, Addison, Juli, John, and Lisa encourage us to break out of old thought patterns and take courage as we embrace all God has for us in 2023.

    How to Build Trust with Your Kids

    How to Build Trust with Your Kids

    Disclaimer: This podcast includes age-sensitive conversations and is rated M for mature.

    When it comes to raising our children, many things feel out of our control. When will they first learn about porn or sexting? When will they first discover swear words and inappropriate language? What about drugs? And then there's the whole conversation on gender and identity. The list goes on.

    The destructive things of this world will at some point present themselves to our children in one way or another. As parents who want to raise godly kids, we play a crucial role in preparing our children to handle the realities of our modern world.

    Join Addison, Juli, John, and Lisa as they discuss creating an atmosphere of trust where your kids feel comfortable coming to you with the confusing issues they encounter, rather than feeling left on their own to navigate them.

    How to Avoid Raising Fearful Kids

    How to Avoid Raising Fearful Kids

    As parents, we all walk a fine line between setting healthy, helpful boundaries with our kids and being over-protective, helicopter parents.

    Naturally, each of us wants to keep our kids from repeating the mistakes we made. If we're not careful, this can lead to a parenting style driven by fear. And fear, as you may know, is a terrible counselor. It also provides a horrible example to follow. Fearful parents raise fearful kids. How do we as parents break fear's grip on our own lives so we can raise children who aren't terrified to take appropriate levels of risk?

    Today, Addison, Juli, John, and Lisa will lend you their personal experience with the hope that you can leave some fearful parenting habits in the past. May this episode equip you as a parent to train your kids well rather than trapping them in your own fears.

    To Shelter or Not to Shelter? How to Protect Your Kids.

    To Shelter or Not to Shelter? How to Protect Your Kids.

    If you’re a millennial you may have grown up with the word “sheltered” coming with a negative stigma. Many parents, in an effort to “protect” their children, end up creating all sorts of rules and boundaries that end up stifling their kids rather than protecting and preparing them.

    We’re living in a day and age where most parents feel that no matter what they choose to do—or not to do—the world will inevitably be pushed on their children.

    Today, on At Home with the Beveres, we’re taking a fresh look at what it means to “shelter” your kids. Whether you have strongly defined boundaries in your home or you lean toward the free-flowing end of the spectrum, this conversation with Addison, Juli, John, and Lisa will provide plenty of food for thought on the subject!

Do you ever listen to something and realize God is using someone to speak directly into your life? That’s how I feel listening to this podcast. It feels like you are sitting at the table with these two couples as they share their personal stories and struggles. 5 stars for sure!
