“Will Your Kids Trust You To Talk About The Hard Things?”
Too many kids raised in Christian homes are falling away from the faith when they leave their parents' homes. Part of the problem is that too many assumptions are made by parents that actually put performance pressure on kids. That’s the opposite of creating trust and comfort for your kids to ask deep spiritual questions, wrestle with scripture, and be candid about their struggles. If we don’t create this kind of relationship, our kids will conform to the family Christianity, but when they depart from the family unit, their faith falls flat because it wasn’t based on their own real relationship with Christ.

“Heart Change, Not Behavior Modification”
We all want obedient and respectful kids but the usual behavior modification approach just doesn’t work very well long term. It’s like pulling weeds but leaving the roots. You’ve got to get to the root of the issue which is your kids' heart. Do you have your kids' hearts? Is your focus to get their obedience or to focus on the heart of the issue? Let’s point our kids to Jesus in the midst of conflict. When they disobey you they are disobeying God. When you’re focused on the heart it transforms your whole mindset and approach to correcting your kids.
