10 Parenting Tips for Fathers
Series: Stand Alone
Dr Sparks explores the tricky ground surrounding Ephesians 6:4 and how dads can be more intentional about how to raise their children.
Ephesians 6:4 (NIV) Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
  1. Show up
You have to be there to make a difference in their lives
  1. Stick around
There is a difference in being there (physical presence in a location) and being with them (involved in their lives, sharing conversations, etc.)
  1. Teach intentionally – prepare them for life
They are watching you for clues as to how to handle life.
  1. Don’t Exasperate your Kids
  2. Encourage along the way
  3. Pray for them
  4. Make God a priority in Your Life
That which is important to you, will become important to them. Only if God is important to you, will God seem worthwhile to your child.
  1. Help them to understand God and God’s Love
Your greatest gift is to teach them to know and love God.
  1. Character is the Most Important aspect of your child
God is more concerned about who we are than what we do, because who we are governs what we do.
  1. Consistency is the Key
Kids need to know the boundaries They need to know that the boundaries are not shifting Kids need to experience correction consistently so that they can learn. This is why rules don’t work as well as principles for living.
