Oh joy!

Any time

Set aside some special “one-on-one” time to spend with each child.

Discussion point: Let your child know they bring you joy when they are obedient.

An obedient child is a joy to their parents! Set aside some “one-on-one” time to spend with each of your children. Let them know that you want to spend time with them because you delight in having a child who chooses to be obedient. Your special time might be spent playing a game, taking a walk, extending story time or going out on a date. The purpose of this activity is to celebrate your child’s obedience.
