Yes, they will. They want to. What parent hasn’t made mistakes in dealing with our kids. Yes, I know, some mistakes are bigger than others. But, our kids need us. They also want us to fix what’s broken. Maybe you’re a screamer and say things you don’t mean. Perhaps you’ve had a substance abuse issue and you need help. Maybe, you left your kids for one reason or another and you KNOW you blew it. First, remember, Christ WILL forgive you. Secondly, ask your kids for forgiveness. Thirdly, if you’re not getting help, ask for it. There are many specialized Christian counselors who can point you in the right direction. Your local church may even have resources you need. Don’t forget to pray, study your Bible, and journal what God’s teaching you. It won’t return void.
