Maybe you’re wondering, page “How do I discipline my kids?”
Discipline is not something you do to your children; it is something you do for them.
Healthy boundaries keep us safe. Pioneers used fences to keep their cattle and livestock from wandering and being stolen. Boundaries do the same thing in a home.
While there is no such thing as a perfect parent, cure setting and keeping boundaries gives children fences that keep them while they are learning self-control.
I was stopped at a red light one day when I saw two beautiful Golden Retrievers pull themselves from under a fence and run into heavy afternoon traffic. They both were kit by speeding cars almost immediately. While the fence was a temporary boundary, the dogs had no sense of impending danger. Training children means the parent must put up fences like the mom of a toddler puts a gate at the top and bottom of stairs to keep the child off the stairs. But it only stays there until the child can climb the stairs safely. Then the gate is removed.
Child training requires temporary fences, instruction, guidance and then releasing the children as they mature.
This workshop will give you practical hints to help you establish Godly boundaries in your home.
