When it comes to blowing up at our kids, it’s not a matter of if. It’s a matter of when. It happens to the best of us. But often the inciting incident isn’t the real issue because the thing that sets us off isn’t the root of the problem. We’ve got to dig up the root if we want to get rid of the bitter fruit.
In the Episode 75 of CHRISTIAN PARENT/CRAZY WORLD, I continue my encouraging and incredibly practical conversation with Kirsten Vossler, a mother of 9 and host of the The Rejoicing in Motherhood Podcast. Together, we dig deep to find out what is really going on when that one last nerve is raw and exposed and we just can’t seem to keep it together. We also discuss how to exercise restraint and not indulge that fleshly desire to yell at our kids. Who doesn’t need that? The key is leaning into the Holy Spirit.
Using the 7 steps that Kirsten outlined in Episode 74, allowing the Holy Spirit to guide us and control our tongues, and getting to the root of what is really bothering will help us to mature as parents and believers. And as we commit to these steps, we will blow it a lot less with our kids.
Join Kirsten and me for this fun, uplifting, enlightening, and very necessary conversation about how to improve our relationship with our kiddos by cleaning out our emotional closets. You can listen on Life Audio by clicking on the image below:
