BIBLICAL PARENTING

 

Emphasize love and encouragement, not just rules and consequences. Uphold the dignity of your child. Do so in public and in private. Show the world you delight in your children.

— Charles R. Swindoll


The Distinction between Childishness and Defiance

Childishness comes in a variety of coloring-box hues: unrestrained energy, curiosity, clumsy spilling, distracted forgetfulness, failure-prone fumbling, roller-coaster mood swings, and mud-pie messiness.
Defiance, on the other hand, paints in darker shades: deliberate and stubborn resistance, hateful and selfish bullying, repeated disobedience, sassing, sneakiness, temper tantrums, and a belligerent and demanding attitude.
Loving discipline deals with defance head on. It changes your child’s course from a destructive path of defiant rebellion against all authority, including God, to a path of love for self and others and respect for authority.
Describing loving discipline is simple; doing it is not so easy! Shaping a child’s will without being too permissive or too harsh requires the wisdom of Solomon. Thankfully, in Proverbs we have the wisdom of Solomon! Let’s open its pages to find helpful guidance.
