Owen Strachan had a post on Patheos for parents on training up the next generation. It reads, "Many of my parental peers are not training their boys and girls to be men and women." Parents, this is well worth your time and consideration.

Dan Darling wrote a post on the ERLC blog on a phrase parent shouldn't let their kids use. SPOILER ALERT - the phrase is, "That's not fair." He goes on to explain why.

Connected Families had a post on the importance of teaching kids to wait. It reads, "Two-thirds of parents believe they have not succeeded in teaching their kids self-control and self-discipline - that is, the ability to wait, to think before acting and to understand potential consequences of their actions." In other words, children don't see their sin or its consequences; and if if they do, they don't know how to deal with it.

Desiring God posted a podcast they did with Francis Chan answering the question, "Why Joy is essential in leadership", especially leadership within the family. Check it out.
