Questions for Parenting: Part 2

1. [Lead-In] Disciplining children is similar to when you first decide to live like a Christian.  Share your trials of when you first committed your life to Christ.

2. [Lead-In] Why will children who fail to respect their parents also refuse to respect other authority figures, adults and teachers?

3. [Heb. 12:5-11] Saying yes or always agreeing with your child can be addictive and unhealthy for the entire family over time. What might be some of the consequences of this?

5. [Eph. 6:1-4] We love God because He loved us first... and He showed us what that love looks like.  How does this love work in parenting?

6. [Eph. 6:1-4] Is it okay for parents to admit their wrongs to children?
