Parenting - Single Parent Style
“If you do not punish your children, you don’t love them,
But if you love your children, you will correct them.”
Proverbs 13:24 NCV
"Offer your children the most valuable resource you have - yourself."
Parent - Who are you?
The definition of parent is: One who raises a child; a father or mother. A guardian, protector, nurturer, to care for, raiser of a family. As a sheep herder stands and sleeps at the gate to protect his sheep, so do you as the sheepherder to your family.
“The most difficult job in the world is being a parent.”
