Most parents can agree with the following two statements:
- We love our kids
- Our kids can test our patience
Part of it is simply the paradoxical nature of the role. Busy lives, hectic schedules, strong personalities colliding – it all works together to make parenting a “glorious act of chaos,” as Bill Farrel, one of today’s broadcast guests, aptly described it.
Yet, we also know that, without clear leadership and a plan, home life can spiral out of control and become crazier than it needs to be.
Intentional parenting cuts down on chaos
From setting a schedule to following through on those promises to discipline bad behavior, parenting with a purpose helps bring harmony to a home.
But parenting isn’t just about taking care of logistics.
It’s about becoming a student of your child.
It’s also about learning how to motivate him or her and using that knowledge to help mold their heart.
In today’s broadcast, “Being the Intentional Parent Your Child Needs,” authors and family experts Bill and Pam Farrel share their insights and practical advice on childrearing. They address issues common to all homes, like getting a child to listen and how to work through stubbornness. It’s a program you won’t want to miss – you can listen on the radio or online.
