Emotional Stability in Our Kids

Whether they realize it or not, our children are looking to us for their emotional security. Lysa TerKeurst explains.

Whether they realize it or not, our children are looking to us for their emotional security.

If we blur the rules based on a child’s emotional responses, we are like shifting sand unstable and ineffective.

I know this, but in the midst of everyday life it’s so hard. Kids can wear down our resolve to stick with what we know is right.

So, I have to remind myself that it’s good for the parent to be the parent. I’m not supposed to be my kids’ buddy or entertainment director. I’m supposed to be a loving authority in their lives. Also, I have to give myself a break when I need it. I’m much more likely to give in to them when I’m worn out. Putting these things in place helps give my kids emotional security and my emotional sanity!
