PARENTOLOGY  (Wk 3)… DARE TO DISCIPLINE

BIG IDEA...

HOW do WE develop GOD’S PLAN for better PARENTING?

A Few Highlights From This Coming Week’s Message…

Three Hats of Discipline...

1. GROUNDSKEEPER (Define the Rules!)

2. REFEREE (Enforce the Rules!)

3. COACH (Keep teaching the Rules!)

Know WHAT You’re Doing…

DISCIPLINE is what you do FOR your Children - PREPARING them for Life! PUNISHMENT is what you do TO your Children - to satisfy your FRUSTRATION!

DEFINE the RULES!

The BIBLE has something to say about DISCIPLINE! (Consider it when Defining your Rules!)

Don’t mistake His PRECEDENCE (Biblical) with Your PREFERENCE (Personal)!

Proverbs 13:24… He who spares the ROD hates his son but he who LOVES HIM is careful to DISCIPLINE him! (Big Discipline is reserved for ATTITUDE not ACTIONS!)

Not DISCIPLINING your Child for Wrongdoing is not an ACT OF LOVE... BUT ACTUALLY THE LACK OF IT!

Effective COACHING that follows DISCIPLINE doesn’t DWELL on the MOMENT – It always uses the MOMENT as a TEACHING OPPORTUNITY

Don’t Forget to pursue “GOD'S FAMILY” Idea Rest of this Series...?

1) Read One Chapter of your BIBLE everyday!

2) Take your Spouse on a Date at least once if not twice!

3) Make Church a Priority each week!

See Ya Sunday!!

PARENTOLOGY  (Wk 2)… GOD’S FAMILY

BIG IDEA...

HOW do WE develop GOD’S PLAN for better PARENTING?

A Few Highlights From This Coming Week’s Message…

If you believe that you are to be the AUTHORITY over your Child - then you’d better DETERMINE whether your HOME is CHILD-CENTERED or GOD-CENTERED!

What if the GREATEST GIFT you would ever GIVE your CHILD...

WAS A HEALTHY MARRIAGE?

Our CHILDREN are Growing Up TODAY with a LOT OF EXPERIENCES (Plural) IN LIFE – but LITTLE or NO EXPERIENCE (Singular) AT LIFE!

God's Priority List for the FAMILY... (Ephesians 5 - Relational Priority)

1) GOD (21 Verses)

2) MARRIAGE (12 Verses)

3) CHILDREN (4 Verses)

If we don’t CHANGE from our IDEA(s) of PARENTING and return to GOD-CENTERED FAMILIES - then you and I will continue to create CHILD-CENTERED HOMES!

Would You Consider “GOD'S FAMILY” Idea Rest of this Series...?

1) Read One Chapter of your BIBLE everyday!

2) Take your Spouse on a Date at least once if not twice!

3) Make Church a Priority each week!

See Ya Sunday!!
