Parenting is dynamic

Being a parent is dynamic.  What works well today might not work tomorrow.  A good parent is capable of adjusting to change and making adjustments in what is needed in light of new realities.  In order to navigate parenting you need to know your core values–and then stick to those values.

These values must be your compass.  Know if the worldview of your culture is not in line with your values.  Be intentional in instilling what is valued to you in the heart of your child.  Never assume that they will “just get it.” They will not!  You, as the parent, need to teach your child in the way that he or she should go.   Your direct engagement in the child’s life gives comfort and security to your child
