This week, we begin a series on raising thriving children.
During this series, we will look at the goals of parenting, the limits of parenting, and what a parent can do to help a child learn to thrive. Thriving is not an innate skill. It is learned.
But it can also be lost in the shuffle of life.
I believe there are two paradigms of parenting: children are like eggs or children are like balls.
Since eggs can shatter, they must be protected and insulated. Balls, on the other hand, bounce.
Which model do you see in your own life?
(By the way, if you missed it, I challenged our common understanding of self-confidence just last week. You can learn about that by CLICKING HERE.)
Listen below for the two theories of parenting and an introduction to this new series.
