"You know, your children are going to act like this someday and you'll get a taste of your own medicine."
And I always thought "someday" meant I had at least 15 years.
My daughter is almost 10 months old now and I'm already seeing her rebellion.
Last week was probably the worst of it.
Halfway through our weekend, Matt looked at me during a moment of this previously stated rebellion and exclaimed
"I think she just sassed you!"
(And at that moment, I went from feeling like a frazzled, dramatic mother to...)
"Why yes, she did. And she's been doing it all week."
I must admit, I haven't quite known how to handle it. Do I spank, scold, a combination of the two?
I've landed on flicking her lips, which gets her attention immediately.
And allows me time to address her tantrum verbally.
But what about the...
arching her back on the changing table
swinging at me when i take something away
screaming at the top of her lungs when she doesn't approve
I'd love some insight on how you correct your children from a Christian perspective.
