“I love my child, but parenting is hard.”
Parenting is tough! As a mother, I know how tiring it can be. As a teacher, I hear the stories often of the real struggles you face. I know how we find ourselves believing that we aren’t doing it right! Nearly everyone of us would say we love our kids unconditionally, but we find that this is the hardest job we truly have in life.
Today’s world, as it was many years ago, is a struggle. We face battles daily in our homes, workplace, and schools. It certainly isn’t limited to those locations though. As a Christian, life is even harder as we face persecution throughout the globe. As a child today, there are many additional challenges.
I was fortunate to grow up in a God fearing, Christian loving family. Today though, it is different. Our children live in a day and age when things are instant, and that includes the pain associated with peers and just understanding your place in this world. They are exposed to so much more than we ever were! Frankly, that is scary! Equipping them with the tools to face life the way God intends for them to is priceless.
Whether you find parenting intuitive or impossible, we could all use a hand here and there. Paul Tripp shows you that God’s grace is our road map for parenting!
