Guest – Jenn Bryant
The moment we are responsible for another human is the moment our own emotional journey begins. Jenn will talk about the vital role moms play in helping kids to navigate their emotions, and how to help them to depend on God and use their feelings as a gauge instead of a guide.
This is part 2 of a discussion with Jenn Bryant from Practical Family.
Jenn and I will share why it’s most important to lay the foundation of the character of God. Often when kids act out emotionally, they need boundaries to help them see the consequences of their actions on others, and as they get older, they begin to understand who makes the rules and why we should choose right vs. wrong.
Their understanding of authority needs to be of a God who is both just and loving. The full character of God is one they can talk to, and respond to, and trust!
God is a good Father. He made us special and amazing creatures, but we are not good or perfectly holy like Him. It’s because we’re created beings that we need Him.
Kids need help identifying their feelings and walking through them
- Not ignoring them
- Not avoiding them
- Not pretending like they don’t exist
Here is Part 2 Episode 16 of Let’s Talk with Jennifer Bryant
