Wisdom for being the best parent you can be!
If you get overwhelmed with parenting and could use a little sound wisdom for your journey, today’s guest is just for you! Miles Mettler works for Focus on the Family, and he has raised 4 amazing kids into adulthood. He has so much wisdom to share! Miles is the author of 52 Parenting Principles: How to bring out the BEST in your kids, and I think you’re going to love him!
In today’s conversation Miles talks about the importance being intentional about listening to our kids, avoiding the lectures, (so hard!) being “disciplined in your discipline” and more. I found so many nuggets to tuck away in this episode, and I think you will, too!
