How we provide for our children

Providing the best for our children is something we all want to do. However, at what point does it breed entitlement? I think the key is in how we provide. If our provision consists of only material things and unguided experiences- then that’s when that feeling of entitlement creeps in.

How about teaching your children a skill? I remember my dad letting me go under the car with him while he changed the oil. I haven’t forgotten that even 40 years later, and I still know how to change the oil in my car.

Center your experiences around each other and less on the entertainment. Going to the movies and popcorn are always fun. Did you interact though?

There are many times to be individuals. Parents needs a break too yo! But it’s far too easy to give our kids devices or put them in front of a tv and leave them alone for hours on end. Family is about building together. Speaking of family… I have to get my kids off to school! Peace be yours! It all makes sense with Jesus at the center!
