FAMILY FIELD GUIDE part 1

Here is the outline to last Wednesday nights teaching

WHAT EVERY KID NEEDS IN A PARENT

1. THE FOUR SPIRITUAL FLAWS  (WHAT KIDS DON’T NEED)

RESCUING – “I don’t want to hurt my kids.” These are “helicopter parents “.
“His father had never interfered with him by asking, ‘Why do you behave as you do?’” 1 Kings 1:6 (NIV)

AVOIDING – “If I ignore it, it’ll go away.”
“Young people are prone to foolishness and fads; the cure comes through tough-minded discipline.” Proverbs 22:15 (The Message)

MINIMIZING – “It’s harmless kid’s stuff.”
“Discipline your children while they are young enough to learn. If you don’t you are helping them destroy themselves.” Proverbs 19:18 (Good News)

OVERREACTING – “Because I’m the Dad…or Mom.”
“Fathers don’t scold your children so much that they become discouraged and quit trying.” Colossians 3:21 (Living Bible)

2. KIDS NEED DISCIPLINE, NOT PUNISHMENT .

“the Lord disciplines those he loves”  Hebrews. 12:5-11

Discipline and punishment are not the same things.
Why discipline is essential

Punishment focuses on the past …discipline focuses on the future.
Punishment is driven by anger …discipline is driven by love.

3. APPLYING THESE PRINCIPLES IN REAL LIFE
Kids need parents that model self-control.
Kids need consistency they can count on.
