We always say that character comes before curriculum, but that can be easier said than done. In the day to day, it can be a real struggle to actually lay down the math or reading to deal with the character issues in our kids. But what if we saw character training for what it REALLY is? In today’s podcast, I will be sharing a big picture perspective with a biblical foundation to encourage you to take the time to reach the hearts of your children!
One thing I forgot to mention in the podcast is that as our kids exhibit behavior that indicates a need for character training, it’s so important to find our first (especially if they are younger) if there is a need that isn’t being met: are they hungry, thirsty, tired? Might we be over scheduling our family life, schooling or activities? This isn’t about giving our kids excuses for misbehaving, but about being responsible as parents to be fair and just in our actions.
Scriptures mentioned in the podcast:
Luke 6:39, 40
2 Corin. 10:3-5
