Thoughts

  • Whose heart the Lord opened, Acts 16:14
  • It’s our job, as a father, to teach our children to serve Him.  Primarily through our example.
  • Discipline your son, while there is (still) hope.  Proverbs 19:18
  • My son, do not despise the LORD’s discipline… Proverbs 3:11
  • Discipline, from which we get disciple or pupil, from “to learn”
  • Fathers, do not exasperate… Colossians 3:21

How long do you think you spend each day in conversation with your toddlers?

  • Most guessed between 15 & 20 minutes a day
  • Results were that men spend on average, less than 40 seconds a day with their kids.
  • In 3 x 10-15 second bursts.

Dr James Dobson’s Dad Understood

  • Gave up everything in order to focus on his family
  • Recognized that was his first priority
