Establishing A Life of Self-Control, single message
This message is part 3 of the series Parenting: From Surviving to Thriving.
Few experiences are more disturbing than being with a child who is out of control. Our tendency may be to blame the child, but more often than not the responsibility rests with the parents. Many parents lack an understanding of the child's “dark side” and fail to shape the child's will based on biblical principles. Once understood, it's amazing what a difference this knowledge of a child's bent toward foolishness and sin can make. Only when we respond appropriately to a child's sinfulness will we be able to cultivate greater self-control.
