Parenting Check-In

Here is a great idea suggested in Shepherding a Child's Heart that my wife and I try to do at least once each year:

Have a "check-in" discussion about each of your kids.  Take notes while you do.  Talk about things like:
  • Where are they growing?
  • What areas are we concerned about their growth?
  • How do they do at relating to God?
  • How do they do at relating to people around them?
  • What one character quality do we need to focus on teaching them?
It's so easy to go through a year... and then two... and then three without actually taking the time to talk about your kids.  We'll spend hours discussing house projects, but miss the biggest projects under our roof.  Here's to being intentional.
