At home, appreciation and acceptance must be initiated by the parents. It must never be hard for us parents to say “I love you,” “I’m proud of you,” and “You did a great job.” when in fact it is usually easier for us to say “Bad!” “I hate you.” and “That’s wrong.” 😨
1 Timothy 3:4 He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity
Parents, children will accept our criticism and correction when they know that we did it out of love and respect to them; but when they feel that you only emphasize on the mistakes and still look closely in finding faults even in times when you don’t find any, then expect that you’ll lose your children as you grow old. 😵
Proverbs 19:18 Discipline your son while there is hope, And do not desire his death.
Sometimes, children rebel not because they’re disobedient in nature. They don’t rebel. They just had to protect themselves from too much pain and torture. Because if not, they won’t be the child you imagine them to be. 😕
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
