Developing the habit of obedience often feels like a struggle or battle of wills, but it doesn’t have to be!
How many times have you found yourself locked in a power struggle with your child over obedience? What if the secret to teaching obedience isn’t about enforcing rules but about building relationships?
In this episode, we unpack the art of instilling obedience in children, and it’s not what you’d expect. I share personal experiences, tips on how to reframe situations for easier obedience, and how to get help from your support network.
But it’s not all about the challenges. We also delve into the joys of parenting – the process of building healthy, lifelong relationships with your kids while teaching them obedience. We talk about the importance of picking your battles wisely, responding to peer pressure, and extending grace. Plus, we discuss how to create an environment conducive to wise decision-making. And there’s a bonus! You can download resources like obedience phrases, games, and book suggestions to make the task of teaching obedience easier and more enjoyable.
