Spiritual Parenting – Focus on Communication

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 1 Corinthians 13:1

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

In spiritual parenting, we are encouraged when we remember that it is God who is at work to change our child or teen’s heart. Go here for encouragement as your parent and consider how your family communicates with one another.

Making a foundation of communication:

Families rarely take time to sit down as a group to make deliberate decisions about how the family will function. Family meetings can help you, your children, and your co-parent to become closer and to communicate more clearly.

Engaging in this process sends a message that spending time together and respecting one another are priorities in your household.
