It seems like everybody has some. A neighborhood, school, or church where there is a whole family of boys or whatever—just running and screaming and picking on each other. You envy those families who have nice, quiet compliant kids. But, for whatever reason our kids are “busy.” More often than not, our kids are always getting into things and always trying to push our buttons. What do we do? Sometimes, it’s a simple as being firm in our discipline. Other times, it’s redirecting attention to something less frustrating. Other times, we lose control, exposing our worst moments. Have no fear, though. God is working. Be faithful to teach His word. Pray His Word takes root in their lives.
