Last week we talked about instilling character in our children, but what is the correlation between character and obedience? Why is it more important to focus on developing character in our kids rather than obedience?
We are so blessed to have Dr. Kathy Koch back for her second episode on the Warfare Parenting Podcast. Kathy shares more from her new book, Parent Differently: Raise Kids with Biblical Character That Changes Culture, about how we can instill obedience in our children by developing their character.
She describes how creating character in children also leads to them becoming obedient. Kathy discusses why focusing on building character over obedience leads to greater development in children as a whole and often will allow them to be more obedient as a result.
