Parenting is Hard – Need Help Getting Unstuck?

My eight year old son use to get frustrated every time I asked him to do something like pick up his toys, do his school work, or clean the dishes. There were days when he would argue over everything with me. He used to have a tantrum when he didn’t get his way. 

I needed help and direction. Life couldn’t go on like this.


In doing our best for our kids we sometimes bump into roadblocks and we need re-direction. There can be seasons in parenting where we get stuck and we need help to get unstuck. Our mission as parents is to raise responsible, honoring, and respectful children and we need guidance. Sometimes our kids get stuck in anger, selfishness, aggression, low self-esteem and they act out.


He use to come to the breakfast table and demand us to feed him what he wanted and he threw a fit if we served him anything else different. He always wanted to be the first to get his plate and cup. 

When asked to do a chore he would only do a little bit of it and then tell us he was finished even though he wasn’t. He expected his sister to play and do things his way and if she didn’t he would say hurtful things to her. 

If he couldn’t figure out a math problem he would yell at me, cry, complain, and sometimes refused doing school work all together. Reading was difficult and he use to give up before he even got started.


We need to take a look at what is going on in our children’s heart and help them overcome. What is your child’s heart condition?

There is hope for kids who struggle socially and academically. Parents you can learn how to be your child’s coach, counselor, mentor, and teacher. Through a Biblical Training approach you can learn how to help your child deal with their challenges. You can learn home therapy through God’s word and develop an individual action plan that will transform your child.

Following is my story and how the Biblical Parenting Approach helped my son and I grow. Perhaps you are looking for answers and direction too. There is hope and help!!!

    Lisa, I clicked over and read your article. I think my heart literally danced when I read what your son said about seeing who God created him to be on the inside! My youngest is 18 and she demonstrated some of the same behaviors you described here. We worked through it, and she has matured a lot, but how much easier the path would have been with a resource like this!
