Episode 057 | Because Parenting Is Hard
From melting down toddlers to defiant teenagers, Pastor Matt answers listener questions on how to raise kids in an ever-changing world. Pastor Matt, Justin and Stephanie talk through how to navigate one of the hardest and most rewarding jobs there is.
It’s quite possibly the hardest job out there. Long hours, irrational customers, shared diseases and emotional turmoil are to be expected and you’re committed for a minimum of 18 years.
Raising children is a beautiful experience but it comes with it’s fair share of challenges and unexpected situations. What do you do when your kids make you angry? How do you find a common ground if you and your spouse disagree with how to discipline? And how do you know if you’re being too hard on your teen?
If you’re worried about getting it right as a parent (spoiler alert: no one is perfect) or wondering how to turn things around with your kids, listen in as Pastor Matt Brown tackles questions on parenting and shares from his own experience of trying to raise kids who love God and are prepared for the real world. The conversation covers the specific roles of men and women in parenting, why bringing your kids to church matters and what to do if you have kids with someone who doesn’t share your faith.
