Parenting from fear or from purpose?
Do you parent from a place of fear or a place of purpose?
It is really easy for us to parent from a place of fear.
We so want the best for our child that we parent fearfully instead of parenting with purpose and belief.
As parents we pray, ”Please, please, please, thank you, thank you, thank you.”
The thank you part or our soul cry conveys are wonder and joy at the gift we have been given.
The other part of the prayer, “please, please, please” contains so many of our fears.
But the “please, please, please,” part also needs to contain our hopes.
If our “please, please, please contains our hopes not just our fears we will parent with purpose.
