Hi, I’m Michael Smalley, and this is 60 seconds of inspiration for your relationship.
Have you asked your kids how you’re doing lately as a parent? Now pick your jaw up off the floor and give me a few more seconds to convince you why this is an important question to ask your children.
You are not perfect, which means your parenting will not be perfect, which means your kids will have issues with some of the things you do from time to time. An incredible gift you can give your kids is the gift of freedom from bitterness.
When you ask them, “how am I doing as a parent?” You are giving them an opportunity to share anything that is bothering them. Receive it, ask forgiveness, and then let them know that you love them and are committed to them for life!
