Love Battery – Here’s Trace Embry, helping to restore your License to Parent.
Every good parent loves their kids. But, do they love their kids with the kind of love that God requires in the parent/child relationship? God’s love is like a battery–it has a positive and a negative side to it. Too many parents love their kids from the positive side of the love battery only. That’s the touchy-feely warm fuzzy side. Every child needs this kind of affirmation. But, it’s the negative side of the love battery that too often gets neglected today. It’s what many refer to as “tough love.” It’s the discipline side of love. Every child needs the negative side of the “love battery” connected as well. Don’t let the word “negative” throw you–there’s nothing negative about fully charging your child with the love of God. It’s the negative side that will make the positive side of the love battery feel that much better.
