Today’s topic is tricky, whether you have a 4 yr old or a 14 yr old. On today’s episode we’re answering questions about your child and faith, from a question as practical as, “how do I get my kids to be quiet while we’re praying?” to the deeper issue of teenagers finding their own faith once they are old enough to decide what they believe for themselves.
The questions we have to talk about with Karen today are all focused on the heart - how to talk to your child about what is going on inside their heart and how to address some of the behaviors that don’t necessarily deserve a time out.

Tantrums, fits, and screams, oh my! We all dislike bad behavior: you, me, family members, neighbors, that lady in line at the grocery store that gives you a sideways glance.
