Raising Children Un-Fundamentalist – Vlog – Discipline

I am continuing my vlog on Raising Children Un-Fundamentalist. Today, I’m talking about whether we should incorporate theology into disciplining our children (I refer to this term to mean punishment). Please first read this guest post on Elizabeth Esther’s blog titled, “Being spanked as a child taught me how to stay in abusive situations.” This is important stuff we need to hear as Christian parents.

Thanks so much for tuning in! Remember to leave a comment below or email me if you’d like me to answer a Q for future videos.

Check out the first vlog on how to undo damage already done. Here’s the second one on what to do if your children become atheists.

    Good topic I didn’t like spanking my son and I probably only didn’t do it much after he was 4-5. He got 1 swat when he was 1, 2 when 2. My son doesn’t bring up being spanked but he does remember at 2 1/2 when I slammed his finger in the van door. Sigh Now as a child myself my Dad and Mom did spank me but they normally used guilt and shame as punishment and yes that is how I saw God in turn.

    • Ouch about the finger in the door!!
