Dear Getting Scared,
Fear can be a crippling emotion that impedes our ability to connect with our children. Fear manifests itself in being critical, over-bearing, and negative. Getting children ready to be productive members of society is about relationship. Connect with your child. Know your child. Encourage your child. Advocate for your child. Unconditionally love your child. Create an environment in which your child feels safe and has his/her needs met. These factors bring healing and hope to our children.
And always remember, “My job is to be faithful. God’s job is the outcomes.”
For children and families,
