Unified Parenting

Posted by Steph Whitley on 09/11/2019

"God, help my husband and I to be a team in parenting...united and undivided. Amen."

When our children were younger, it seemed like my husbånd and I were on the same page with parenting. And now that we have four teens, parenting can get a little tricky---sometimes my husband and I have different ideas. 

It takes a little discussing, a little processing and a lot of praying. : )

The one thing that I find myself constantly working on is resisting my tendency to correct my husband in front of our kids. Sometimes it's with my words and sometimes it's with my expressions/looks. Even though I "think" I am helping the situation, it always backfires and it's not a good example to our children. It is ALWAYS better to talk to him later in private. Why am I such a slow learner?!? Sigh. 

Prayer: God, help us to be united and undivided in our parenting. Give me self-control with my words and expressions when I don't agree with his parenting strategies or ideas. When we disagree, help us to "work things out" and get on the same page in private. Amen.
