Choose Your Battles

 

There are two kinds of parents.

Parents who bless and parents who curse.

What kind of parent are you?

Face it, your kids will always make mistakes.

So here’s a million-dollar advice: Choose your battles.

Many parents simply have too many battles with their children: Unruly room.  Loud music.  Low grades.  Ugly penmanship.  The list is endless.

But if your child’s mistake is something that’s not morally evil, let it slide!

Instead, correct only when he cheats, or lies, or does something sinful.

But if your kid is just acting like a child–he’s restless, he’s importunate, he’s noisy, he’s clumsy, he’s disorganized– don’t get mad at him!

I repeat: Choose your battles well.  Because at the end of the day, you want to praise your children more than you correct them by a ratio of 4:1.  You need to praise your child at least four times more than you correct them.

Here’s the key.  Stop catching your kids doing “bad” stuff.  You only reinforce this behavior.  Instead, catch your kids doing good things–and praise them.  What gets attention gets repeated.  And as the good grows exponentially, it displaces the bad, spontaneously.

When you praise your children, you bless them.

 

May your dreams come true,
