There are times when we hope our kids learn valuable lessons. They do something wrong, or they find themselves in situations where they have a decision to make. But, have you ever wondered if God allows your kids to go through situations to teach you something? Frankly, I never really thought about that until I started writing these Parent Minute scripts. But as I look back at raising our four kids, I realize that many of the situations that I thought were lessons for my kids were actually lessons for me. Our family has been through a lot—a few things that I’d rather not necessarily share here—but as I look back, those moments made me more patient, a better listener, and a prayer warrior. Remember, “all things work together for good” (Romans 8:28 ESV).
