I’ve done several posts on caring for the home, but now I’m going to focus on caring for your children, and one of the best ways we can do this is to be intentional.
The term intentional means: done in a way that is planned or intended. It doesn’t always come naturally, we have to plan it out, practice it, and keep at it to make it habit. I have been working at being intentional in my parenting, but I find that I’m not being intentional enough. So, mom’s (or dad’s) let’s do this the right way, together.
Our children aren’t just our job or just our responsibility, they are a blessing from God, He gave them to us to love, to train, and guide them in this life. What is a better way to do this than to be intentional with them as much as we can.
This isn’t going to be easy, and as the definition shows, it’s not going to just come to us we have to try at this and try very hard. When we feel like giving up or that it’s just not going to do any good, that’s when we need to push the most.
I’m going to do several posts over the next few weeks with some tips on being intentional in different areas in our parenting I only want to focus on one a week, once we’ve done the one tip for the week we’ll add a new one so it’s not too much at once and we either forget about some or we have a really hard day (especially if you have several little one’s and it gets really hard).
So, until then be thinking of what the term intentional means to you and how you would like to be intentional in your parenting. Look for tip #1 tomorrow.
