Fun Time with Dad: In this segment, I talk about what I learn from playing Settlers of Catan with my kids. Maybe I’m too competitive in these games.
In this episode we take a look at some encouraging stories of intentional parenting. Many of you have had talks with school teachers or Sunday school teachers about your kids’ misbehavior. But sometimes a note of encouragement comes along or you see a response in your kids that they are “getting it.” It’s in those moments and events that we realize all this hard work is paying off.
Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. – Proverbs 22:6
I’ve heard someone say that this verse could be best translated in training up a child in the way he “is bent.” Though I haven’t thoroughly digested this, it makes sense because God has uniquely designed each of us and our children. When we can help them discover their talents and abilities it provides encouragement to them when they can use and excel with that talent.
