We are re-releasing the full episode (vs Parts 1 & 2) where Katie and Hope have a heart to heart with Hope’s missionary brother, Nathan Lloyd-Jones. We learn a little about Nathan and we have real talk about the struggles of parenting. We discuss healthy ways to have conversations with children about their actions. The later half of the discussion moves to a focus on issues with teens, and how parents can persist past seemingly bad attitudes and actions. Nathan provides info on short term mission work with him in Honduras.
Tips from this episode:
As a parent, if you struggle with the ability to verbalize emotions and talk through events with your children, seek support from a more verbal partner or learn from a verbal friend how to better have these tougher conversations. Consider doing “temptation bundling” to match character building with fun activities for your children.
