RESOLUTIONS

Do you make new year resolutions? Do you require same from your children?


In as much as it is a great way to plan for the new year, we cannot afford to miss these steps as we guide our children to make plans for 2023.


📍Is the goal realistic?


📍Is it age appropriate?


📍Does the child understand why this is important?


📍Is the child involved in the decision?


📍Will I be committed to walking with them to achieve it?


📍Will heaven fall if they don’t achieve it?


📍Do I have back up structure in place if the plan does not work?


📍What is my definition of success/failure?


📍Why is the goal important to me?, is it for my ego/status boost or for the child’s good?



Putting undue and unrealistic pressure on our children to achieve a goal or to be like others without considering their interests and strengths leads to frustrations and resentment.

Nobody needs that kind of feeling, not in a new year or any time of life.


As we start 2023 in a few days I pray renewed grace and strength unto you for your parenting journey.


You have been graced by God to raise your child well



See you in 2023 🎉
