One only has to listen to discover the heart of a child. Our goal as parents is to reach the heart rather than simply realign behavior. Too often we depend on rules as the primary enforcers of behavior. Rules can change behavior, but they can’t change the heart. When parents begin to discern the difference between character flaws and purposeful disobedience, they will implement a gentler approach to reaching and understanding their children. As a result, children will more willingly admit their faults and seek help from those they love. Join Mark as he relates his experience as a shepherd and the important truth that you don’t become a shepherd just because you own sheep.
