TMV: Episode 21 – Discipline – Part 2
Welcome back to part two of our series on discipline. We have decided to extend this series into four parts and, in today’s episode, we share some deep topics that you can apply when you discipline your little ones. Discipline starts when they are little and changes as they continue to grow and explore the world for themselves. When they become teenagers, discipline changes appropriately and continues to evolve to meet their needs in each phase of childhood. Tuning in, you will hear about when and how we discipline our children and how discipline can take on different forms, but the key is consistency! We also talk about being marriage-centered and how you and your husband need to be on the same page, the importance of repenting to your child if you wrong them in some way, and game-time versus play-time. Stay tuned for all this and more!
