Parents – you are in charge!

Parents today have relinquished control of their families.  The children are making the decisions.  Instead of telling our children what they are to do we ask them.  For example “Jimmy, it is time to clean your room.”  Too often today we hear “Jimmy, would you mind tidying up your room?”   Big difference.  Parents have given up the authority they have.  Following is an article I have recommended many times.  It is secular – but accurate.  I hope this is helpful:
