We all want to win our children’s hearts. Even more, we want them to give their hearts to Jesus. Unfortunately, there’s no surefire way to get our kids to make the right decisions. However, there is one primary posture we can take as parents that increases the chances of influencing their hearts–and having them call us when they’re out of the house 🙂
In this episode, we discuss five critical moments—in discipline, in our child’s anxiety, in our mistakes, in our kids’ interests, and in play—where how we speak, matters for winning our kids’ hearts. We talk about why focusing on how we respond, not how we react is important. That’s because research consistently shows that it’s not necessarily what we know about parenting that matters for child outcomes, but who we (the parents) are becoming.
