Scripture says “Be angry and sin not.”
But what do we do when we do sin in anger?
We all want healthy parent-child relationships. But what do we do when we have blown it with our kids? When the pressures of work, bills, and life, in general, have turned us into Frankenstein monsters?
There are fundamentally three components when rebuilding relationships and healing. Though not comfortable, they are effective and surprisingly simple. These three are confession, repentance, and forgiveness.
When we admit our mistakes to our kids, sit them down and boldly tell them that we’re on a mission to change the things we’re fully culpable for in the relationship. Then humbly ask for their forgiveness. Our kids are usually resilient enough to forgive, forget, and go on.
