THRIVING FAMILIES: How To Teach Your Kids Self Control!
As a young father I used to hide a lot at the office or in my extracurricular activities like golfing J I had 5 kids and they were loud!! My house was a like a circus!!! Sometimes it felt like it would be easier to just stay away. Have you been there?
My go to for trying to control my kids loud behavior was to yell – to get their attention by raising my volume until it was louder than theirs. I just wanted peace and quiet so I could enjoy my evening after a long day of work!!
I was so full of SELF, that I wasn’t putting any limits on myself – I was all about me: What I needed, what I wanted, how I felt—that I wasn’t thinking about anyone else. In my family, this resulted in a lot of me yelling. I wasn’t putting any control on myself – just trying to control everyone else.
Self-control is the loving way of getting ourselves under God’s control. It’s giving God permission to control us with His Spirit. When we aren’t letting God control us—we are letting ourselves control us—which is usually more about controlling other people with our bad behavior.
In today’s video, as always, I’m sharing tips to help your family thrive:
- What godly self-control looks like
- The one moment I’ll never forget when I yelled at my kids
- How to gain control of yourself and teach your kids to do the same
