Dads, say this to yourself: I can have a major impact on the direction my children’s lives take.
This might seem like it’s in contradiction with last week’s tip, but both statements are Biblical.
It’s up to you to work out this tension in your family.
Dads, say this to yourself: I’m not sovereign over my children’s future, God is.
Dads, if there is a reasonable chance that your child will do a task without your reminder or urging (or command or nagging), don’t remind or urge her to do it. It can be very deflating.
“Rats! I was looking forward to impressing him, but now it’s just a job I have to do.”
Dads, ask your kids this question: This thing that you do, is it a sin? In other words, do you think God likes it when you do it?
Dads, it’s your job to not FREAK OUT when a child describes the emotions they are feeling.
Dads, the next time you feel your son or daughter is being unreasonable, think about this: Is it possible that you’re not really considering the issue from their point of view?
Dads, when regarding your kids and salvation, remember: Fear of hell is not a bad reason to choose Jesus.
Dads, exhort your kids, especially your sons, with this idea: It will be bad if, in the future, someone tells you ‘Don’t quit your day job‘, if you don’t, in fact, have a day job.
Dads, do your young kids look bored? Go lay on the living room floor and see who attacks you.
Dads, pray like this, “Dear Father, please help us to see where we are unwise in our parenting.”
