Parenting Children
 The Selfish Child



Hopefully you are past the days of your child throwing a tantrum on the floor when you tell them you absolutely will not buy them their 50th Barbie or Ninjago Character. There’s a phrase that surrounds this kind of behaviour - spoiled brat. No parent wants a spoiled child, so why is it so hard to say NO, when we know NO is the best answer?

Check out this video that gives us an idea as parents how to "de-spoil" our children.

So, what's it like for you? As you think through setting limits, being consistent and providing choices, which of these is most important for you right now? Is there one you struggle with more than the others?

Take some time to develop a plan for one of these areas and then practice being consistent with it.

As always, we welcome your feedback and prayer requests, so feel free to contact me with those at
