eZine #71: How To Handle Tough Parenting Seasons

July eZine: How To Handle Tough Parenting Seasons

Parenting: Tough Seasons in Parenting | How to make it through

In spite of the rigorous demands of the race, I have fully loved parenting our children. But with each stage of child-rearing — infant, toddler, preschooler, the primary years, preteen, teenager or beyond —new surprises and challenges arise. When it’s good and the kids are tracking with you and cooperating with your best parenting plans, it is really good. Wow. You love your role. You run with ease. This is how it is supposed to be. This season can go on forever. You LOVE this stage. You can do it.

But…when its bad, and your parenting skills are being fully taxed and your perfectly crafted plans are completely failing – it can be really, really bad. Each parenting step is uncertain and unsteady. You run because you have to not because you want to. You are now both exhausted and exasperated.

It’s into these tough times that I want to coach you. I will suggest some of my most practical tips to help you make it through the tough seasons of parenting. Depending on the stage your children are at, not every one of these ideas will apply. Remember also that the older your children are, the more pressure you are under to get it right — you are running out of time. May God give you grace to live out the ones that would change things for the positive.
