I’m very excited to announce that I have a monthly contributor post at my friend Jaimi’s blog, thestay-at-home-survivalguide.com! I’ll be posting a Christian parenting post once a month over there. This week, my post is about teaching children to obey.

Please don’t get me wrong: I am in NO way saying that I have it all together. If you could see how disobedient my boys are sometimes! Shew! But the thing is, we’re working with them on it, and they get better every day. Not all children become obedient immediately, and when you have stubborn children with special needs… wowsa!

I hope you can get something from my post, but as I said, I’m not an expert. My oldest is almost 12 years old. In searching for an idea for my image, I found this article about obedience. Many posts about obedience make me feel so inadequate, but this actually encouraged me to work even harder with the boys. It felt uplifting and challenging without being discouraging. And it’s a guy who should know what he’s talking about: he’s been parenting a little longer than I’ve been alive (John Piper).

Also, my friend has a . You should check it out.

Now for my post! I hope you’ll let me know your thoughts.
God bless you in your parenting!

JennAbout Jenn: I’m a Christian wife to an amazing man (since 1998) and a stay-at-home-teaching mom to four special & incredible boys (born in 2004, 2005, 2007, & 2009). I’m messy and cluttered, but working on that (really, I am!). I’m a discouraged perfectionist and a classic procrastinator who probably has both ADD & Autism, so I tend to jump from topic to topic (and activity to activity) without notice. My Love Languages are Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch. I’m an INFP who enjoys friends but loves to be alone. I love getting and giving hugs, and encouragement is a Spiritual gift of mine that can too-easily be turned into the weapon of discouragement, if I’m not careful. I enjoy writing, singing, words, drawing, photography, digital creations, and reading. Oh, and pizza, tacos, and steak. Now I’m hungry. That reminds me; I eat gluten free and try to eat organic and avoid white sugar and GMOs as much as possible.  Find me on Facebook (Writer/Editor page) (Fan page), Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram.
