Raising a Strong Generation

How do we react to our children's mistakes? 

Tonight over dinner the subject came up of how to deal with a child when they have made a bad decision. One mother stated that she knows she over reacts to things but says that to her things are very "black and white." On the other hand her husband said that when faced with a situation he tries to find a way to turn it into a learning opportunity.

I must say I agree with the latter. Our children need to know when they have done something wrong and face any consequences from those choices, but we also need to loving show them the right way. We have to TEACH them during those times.

We might feel like yelling and punishing the crime, but does our Father in Heaven do that to us? Or does he show patience and lets us learn from our mistakes? Parenting is the hardest thing I have ever done and probably will ever do. It pushes me to grow in ways I never would have without my children.

What an important task our Father has given us! We must do all in our power to do it right!
