So agree. Respectful words spoken to children, especially when disciplining, is good seed sown.

Hey Judy. Absolutely. Discipline should never come with condemnation or accusation. Like you said, that "good seed sown" yields a heart that feels well-loved, even when corrected.

It is really good to hear someone standing up for children. What I find is so frustrating is the belief that it's Parents vs children and this attitude is so common in christians.
How can anyone have a healthy relationship if you believe the worse of the other person. Now, don't tell me that parents don't do that, because the most common thing they say in christian parenting books is "Don't let your children manipulate you".
So, again how will this lead to a healthy relationship with your children?

Hi Hannah. I really appreciate your perspective on this. You're absolutely right -- sometimes Christian parents have a really warped idea of authority and can do damage they never intended. You might really enjoy a book called, "Unconditional Parenting," by A. Kohn. It's not written by someone who claims to specifically be a "Christian" yet is more gracious in regards to parenting than what you often hear in the Christian community.
