What Are you Modelling for Your Child?

september parentingToday we kick off our September 2015 Parenting Weekend entitled “Disciplining- How to Remain Calm Amidst the Chaos” with a post from Janis Cox. This is the post we broke our series on back in June and we have decided to restart our series with Janis’ wonderful post.


There are days when you think none of the training you have done has made any impact on the lives of your children. There will always be those days, when children are over-tired, cranky or miserable or you are anxious, stressed or feeling unable to cope.

My advice as grandma would be to take a break – refocus on the positive.

But before all that happens children need to be trained in living well in your household.

Training and discipline in all parts of life are important to instill in your children.

Proverbs 22:6 (KJV)

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

One way we can do that is by modeling what we want them to learn.

Don’t forget our upcoming themes:

October 2015: Raising children to be leaders
As parents we don’t want our children to follow the norms and practices of this world. We want them to think for themselves and to inspire other to do what is right.

November 2015: Parenting a strong-willed child
Parenting is Jo easy business and it often times seems ten times worse when a strong-willed child in thrown into the mix. How do parents of strong-willed children cope? What advice can we share with parents?
