Understand that teaching attentiveness is about molding your child's character, which requires effort and consistency.
Dedicate the early years to character training and relationship building, as this will make later parenting easier.
Ensure that your children understand you'll consistently apply loving discipline when needed, even if it means interrupting your own activities.
Be attentive to your child's behavior, attitudes, and interactions with others.
When disciplining, ask yourself what heart issue needs addressing (e.g., pride, selfishness, anger).
Share relevant verses with your child, encourage them to write down and memorize Scripture, and pray together for guidance.
Understand that loving discipline takes more time and effort than yelling but is worth the investment.
