Learning to Honor your Kids

I just have to share this really wonderful video I found on Facebook about honoring our kids. I admit that I myself, get upset when Nate starts throwing tantrums. Sometimes I won’t know what to do anymore, whether I try to stop him calmly or with a stern voice, he’d do it even more.

Parenting is really not an easy job – it’s one of the hardest things to do. It requires tons of patience, self-control and understanding. This video just hit me and made me realize that there are things I’ve not been doing right. And in order Nate to honor me, I should honor him first. I’m happy I stumbled upon this clip; it really brought tears in my eyes. I hope you (parents) find this video very encouraging too!

  1. Yeah, our kids mirror our actions (most often than not) so we need to be good role models to them. Honoring them would help boost their self-esteem and would take a clue to reciprocate and do the same to other people.

  2. You should watched the 3 videos of this about parenting. "Honor Your Parents", "Be Honorable" and that video is the third part "Honor your Parents, Be Honorable".

    I've learned a lot in those messages. We need to honor our parents not because they deserve it but because of their position. We need to be honorable in the eyes of our children because they are watching us. And we need to find time, build relationship and provide biblical instructions to our children.

  3. This is a must watched video for parents and even parents to be. Yes it requires a lot of patience to be a parent. I am guilty that I have failed a lot of times before, there were times I yelled at them then I felt guilty after. I tell them I am sorry and let them know what was wrong. I learned that having an open communication with kids resolve a lot of problems, honor them and let them feel loved. As a parent, be honest, forgiving and ofcourse God needs to be the center of your relationships.

  4. Parenting is the toughest and most challenging job. I've also had moments of being unsure and at times being angry but with parenting you learn as you go. There's no manual. Thanks for sharing the video!

  5. I'm already having those moments. My daughter is almost 2 years old and she's getting so active and stubborn more and more. Well, I'm still learning and advice like this is very helpful to a first time parent like me. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Too bad I can't open the video 🙁 Will check it in Youtube later. Parenting is really a tough job. Being responsible for helpless children's well being and ensuring they grow to become desirable members of the society and God fearing individuals needs plenty of guidance and prayers.

  7. This is nice. It is indeed tough to raise kids. It doesn't stop at providing them with food, education, money, and shelter. It is so much more. Cultivating values as they grow up is one of the most challenging as a parent.
