The Dreaded Kidzilla

Reg Grant on March 13, 2009 in DTS Devotional

I was in the checkout line at the store and encountered the dreaded kidzilla we’ve all seen before: this one was a real ring-tail tooter - throwing a tantrum (plus a few things in the shopping cart) because his thoroughly whipped Mommy wouldn’t buy him a piece of candy. I was reminded of a fortune cookie proverb I read recently: Parents who are afraid to put their foot down usually have children who step on their toes.” Prov. 29:17: “Discipline your child, and he will give you rest; he will give pleasure to you.” It hurts us to discipline our kids, but it hurts worse if we don’t.
