Helping Families by Tearing Down Walls

Parenting Tips

Should I allow my child to make mistakes?

You can rest assured that your children will make mistakes… just like you will! What you cannot do is create an environment where those mistakes are acknowledged as the norm. Remember: before you can shape the behavior that leads to mistakes, you want to shape the mindsets in your child’s life – the Walls that keep them from a life of fulfillment. A part of that is helping your child understand God’s grace – to avoid Walls of Guilt and Despair – while also helping them recognize God’s righteousness – to avoid walls of Pride and Compromise. How do you do both? By living a lifestyle of Inspiring your child – constantly reminding him of who he is in Christ, and what he can become, while also holding fast to clear boundaries and consequences. This allows the consequences to be about correction and not vindication
