What do you think is one of the most important aspects of parenting?
Believe it or not, consistently presenting your kids with teachable moments in your home is a crucial aspect to raising kids with character. Today we will shed some light on how to create teachable moments.
Deuteronomy 6:6-7 comes to mind. It says, “These commandments that I give to you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”
How can you possibly provide teachable moments in your home in light of today’s culture?
In today’s digital age, kid’s every waking moment is virtually occupied. How often do we really take the time to:
- Simply sit at home
- Take quiet walks
- Tuck our kids in bed before they go to sleep
You and your teen will benefit by taking more time to do these simple things. At first, your kids may find it boring.
You will be amazed at all the insights, fun, and teachable moments that can come from a simple discussion of the events of an average day.
