There certain ways to be purposeful in your parenting that are very important. They determine whether or not you accomplish your goals of child training. But as busy moms, it can be easy to lose sight of this! Without being intentional and having a plan, we often fail to take the needed steps to reach those goals.
Here are 4 Ways To Be Purposeful In Your Parenting:
1. Begin training and teaching them God’s Word early
Since a child’s character is formed primarily in his early years, it’s very important that we begin early to teach and train them in God’s Word.
“And that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” II Timothy 3:15
The harder you work at teaching and training your kids when they are young, the easier the rest of your parenting years will be. Train their heart as you point them to Scriptures which tell them how to live a life of obedience to God.
2. Give more love than discipline
Positive parenting goes a long way toward building relationships with your children. It will also motivate them to keep growing as they learn!
We all have days where we feel like all we do is discipline and correct the kids. I know that purposeful parenting can be frustrating, as well as exhausting. That in turn can lead to irritation. The danger is that our discipline is no longer given in love.
I have found that the more a child needs to be corrected and disciplined, the more love I need to intentionally show him. This doesn’t mean skipping the discipline. It means purposefully showing that child that I love him by spending extra time with him, playing with him, reading to him, etc.
Keep in mind that your goal of discipline is not to change behavior, but to change the heart. When you keep that focus, it will help you discipline in love.
3. Train them to be obedient
As parents, God has given us the position of authority over our kid. It is our responsibility to faithfully exercise that authority. When parenting with purpose, we need to teach our children to be obedient to our voice. That when God speaks to them, they will listen and obey willingly.
When we don’t require our children to obey, we aren’t being good stewards of the children he has entrusted to our care. Teaching our children to be obedient to us, is teaching them to be obedient to God.
He is the one who gives the command in His Word that children obey their parents. We need to teach our kids first time obedience, so they will have God’s blessing on their lives as they strive to please Him.
4. Focus on their character
It’s easy to see that we have a character crisis in our society today. As Christian parents, we need to get excited about the opportunity to raise a generation of young people with good, strong Christian character! It’s not the job of the church or the Christian school. It’s up to us.
We are the best ones to teach them character, because we love them more than anyone else will, and we know them better.
Remember to be purposeful in these four areas of parenting. Get excited about the opportunity you have as a Christian parent to raise your kids to love God and grow to be like Him.[magicactionbox]

Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated. http://apil.goodprizwomen.com/beauty/f-bort-grtt-hr-efter-faergning.php fa bort gratt har efter fargning
I love that point about when a kid needs more discipline they also need more love!
Hi Jennifer! It’s nice to “meet you!” Thanks for your encouraging words. I love that you have a 2nd chance, and are doing these things with your daughter. That is great!!
You are so right! The more a child needs discipline the more he/she needs love!!! I love your 4 points on how to be purposeful in parenting; the Lord blessed my husband and I with a “4th” chance and everything you said is what I’ve been striving to do with her since day 1. Thank you so much for sharing this, so many parents or parents to be really need to see this.
I am your neighbor today at A Wise Woman link up! God bless you
