You might want to read the first part of this brief series before reading this post. You can find it here. In that post, I expressed some concerns that I have regarding a number of parents today. In this post, I want to ask you to comment on what encourages you about some parents today.
Just the other day, Charlotte and I were talking about a young couple from our church. We both observed the way they dealt with their children. This couple is in their late thirties/early forties and have four children, ten years of age and under. I watched them with their children and I was encouraged. They obviously encourage and love their children. They are very "connected" to their children. Their children are full of life and energy.
At the same time, these parents give their children limits and boundaries. They deal with their children when they get out of line. There are consequences for certain behaviors.
I see other good parents as well. I also feel encouraged by these families.
What do you see in some parents that you find encouraging?
