Davidisms - You Must Enforce Your Boundaries

Do you love me? Yes. Can I have my own way? No. Kids are constantly asking their moms and dads these two questions. Wise parents definitively and consistently answer them. Parents do so by creating and enforcing boundaries. Scripture says it this way: “Whoever heeds instruction is on the path to life, but he who rejects reproof leads others astray” (Prov. 10:17). Kids need to know that you passionately and unconditionally love them. But when they step outside of known boundaries, they also need to know that you will discipline them. No Boundaries? Experience rebellious kids. Children will begin to believe that they run the show. They’ll push the limits. And push. And push as far as they can until you finally say, “No.” God created boundaries to keep us safe. To teach us well. One of the best things you will ever do for your kids is enforce them. By consistently saying yes and no as needed.
