Davidisms: Hug Your Child After Correction

It’s a simple but profound parenting tip: Hug your child after correction.

Young children learn obedience through boundaries set by parents at home. But boundaries mean nothing unless they are enforced. And enforcing usually requires correction. And correction inevitably leads to some kind of pain in the child.

So, when the necessary corrections come, parents, make sure you do this one thing after you’ve corrected your child: hug him or her. There is a time to give an embrace (Ecclesiastes 3:5). God knows the importance of physical touch in a relationship.

How much more should parents show affection for your kids!

A sweet hug is a simple way of saying that although you didn’t like the behavior, you still love your child.

Forever. Unconditionally. No matter what.
