3 Fabulous Delusions Video provided by: Josh McDowell Ministry
You know, in raising our children there’s a number of, I call them fabulous delusions that we have with our kids. I want to touch on three of them. This is wrong thinking when it comes to raising a child.
Fabulous Delusion #1: Quality over Quantity
They not only need the quality, they need the quantity. The time in, not just the big times, the little times with dad and with mom. And so it’s a delusion thinking, if you spend quality time with your child and you think that’s all they need. Nope. They need the quantity as much as the quality.
Fabulous Delusion #2: It’s the big moments that count!
The big moments are important, and the kids remember the big moments, but it’s usually not the big moments that impact a child and mold their lives. It’s those small, day in and day out experiences.
Fabulous Delusion #3: When my kids are teens, the formative years are past.
The formative years are never over. Some of the greatest impact you can have on your children is when they are teenagers. Because then they can reason with you, they can think with you, you can interact with them, you can answer their questions, and impart truth into their lives. The formative years are NEVER over.
