Don’t feel bad

Praising childrenWe want to be excellent parents and build up our children, training them in the way – The Way – they should go. In the past several decades the child psychology books, educators and our culture have advised us to heap praise on them for everything they do.  The oft-repeated phrase, “Good Job!” means that everyone gets a medal, and no one feels bad. But did you know that a continual heaping of praise on a child actually does harm?  What is the biblical way to encourage a child?

In Segment 2, we’re studying the Book of Genesis.  Join us as teacher Connie Stampfl takes us verse-by-verse through this foundational book. Be sure to download the separate podcast and the notes in our Bible study tab on the menu.
