B-5 Parenting Your Child’s Heart: A Conservative Christian Perspective on Parenting Young Children
How do we measure our success as parents? Is it the parent’s job to train the child in order to achieve certain behavior goals? Should you train behavior or the heart of your child? What do we mean by heart? Helping our children examine why they are behaving a particular way is far more important (and time consuming) than simply criticizing the behavior. See C-8 for parenting teens.
