Rules without Relationship leads to Rebellion
That's great. I have to remember that both as a Christian and especially as a parent. It's not "Spare the rod, spoil the child". That's a trite saying we use to justify our discipline methods. The actual verse is
He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him. (Proverbs 13:24)Have to remember that too.
