Thoughts: Parents and Authority

‘Gee, I can’t talk to my kids! They simply don’t listen to me!’

‘They just don’t obey me!’

‘I can’t get through to my kids.’

Here’s one common issue parents face today , that is: the LACK of authority at home.

Parents are the adults. Not the kidsWhich simply means, there is a problem in exercising authority in the family.

Parents (whom are NOT obeyed by their children) often place the blame on the kids, when in fact, the issue hugely lies on the parents themselves who ‘fail’ to exercise authority since day one.

Read: Parents are the adults. Not the kids.

Children are the ones entrusted into the care of a husband and a wife. AND, the parents need to be actively involved in their children’s lives to understand their habits, their tendencies, their strengths, their weaknesses, and to exercise authority, discipline, as well as justice and love.

It can’t be done when the parents spend little time with the children It can’t be done when the parents spend little time with the children.

It can’t be done if the parents delegate their parental duties to a third person, eg. A nanny, a domestic helper, or even grandparents.

Food for thought.

(Inspired by a sermon by Rev. Ivan Kristiono)
