I’ve heard a quote before. Maybe you’ve heard it, too.
“Rules without relationship leads to rebellion.”
Of course, rules are beneficial.
Rules keep us safe, help teach respect, and are put in place for our own good.
But if a house is only full of rules and no fun, you’ll have kids who grow up and want nothing to do with what you’ve given them.
If you want your kids to follow your faith, the best place to start is to have contagious joy that will inspire them.
