Gentle Parenting: What Does It Mean? We’re living in a reactionary time - it seems like everything requires some kind of immediate emotional response. Unfortunately, this mindset often spills over into parenting.
As I watched his tirade, I considered my options. Would I give in to the old me who wanted to react in frustration and anger? Or would the new me--the kinder and gentler mom, be the one to respond to my son's wrong behavior?
Have you ever been so caught up in the busyness of your day that you don't even think about God very much, if at all? Or maybe you are in a dry season, feeling distant from the Lord? We all go through seasons like that. I have found that taking just a moment to offer a simple prayer, based on Scripture, helps me refocus on what REALLY matters!
