My dear son (12) came to me the other day. He gave me one of the biggest compliments I think a kid can give.
We were talking about the different "parenting styles" of the mothers at church. Even at the tender age of 12 he understands the verse,
Proverbs 13:24 (NLT)
"Those who spare the rod of discipline hate their children.
Those who love their children care enough to discipline them."
So then he said, "Mom, you should get all of the mothers together (at the church) and teach a class on how to be a good mom!"
When I have one of those moments I just thank God that knows what we need to hear, when we need to hear it! Praise the Lord for speaking through our kids!
