I love the challenge to “stop trying to protect your boys and instead challenge them toward adventure and self-discovery.” This is a huge truth for us as parents. We want to protect our children and keep them from making mistakes. We know, however, in the moments of falling and getting hurt we learn. This is especially true for boys. Each scrape, bruise, and scar is a life lesson learned.
Moms, look for those teachable moments to connect to the heart of your young man in your home. As he excitedly tells you his story of heroics and adventure, showing off that cut or scrape, don’t react, but rather interact.
I want to let you know that I am praying for moms in specific and real ways this month when it comes to relationships with your sons! I am praying for God to give you words to say, time to spend, and patience to listen!
