5 Things to Know about Raising Kids

Driving out of the small town where our daughter attended college, we headed towards the interstate to begin the familiar trip home.  Right before we turned to the on-ramp we decided to stay on the local road we were on and see where it headed.  In about the same amount of time with a lot of new scenery, we arrived home.  An adventure to prove again that a lot of different ways get to the same place!

Raising kids is a lot like that.  Not a lot of one-size-fits-all in the technique department.  In fact, there are many right answers to the same questions.  Anyone who has a sibling or more that one child will agree, kids from the same family are very different!

Each one of us has our own unique style of parenting. Some of us are more orderly, more laid back, more playful, more flexible, more structured, etc.  We will bring our own personalities into parenting and that God uses those different styles to benefit our families.

The writer of the Proverbs was really on to something when he said, Train up a child in the way he should go…. (Proverbs 22:6).  How can we figure out the way our child should go?

Five principles can sort out what are the most effective strategies for raising your kids:

  1. Know your Biblical do’s and don’ts.

  2. Know child development.

  3. Know your child.

  4. Know your options.

  5. Know where to get help.

Look for details on each of these in the weeks to come!
