Find The Parenting Balance
There are many great principles to remember when parenting. One is that there is no such thing as a perfect parent. Secondly, we are not responsible for the outcome of our effort. We have to leave the results up to God. These are two principles to hold on to when we are dealing with a rebellious child.
First because there is no such thing as a perfect parent we can always look for ways to improve and better our parenting. With this attitude of always learning we wont have to look back 20 years from now and think “I wish I had…” we will be able to say, “I’m so glad I did!”
That being said if we are continually pursuing relationship with God, our spouse and our children, we aren’t responsible for the outcome just the effort we put in. Remember that even the “Perfect Trainer” had a Judas in His “family” of twelve. We have to let go and leave the end results up to God.
Never give up!!!
