Parenting that Reflects the Character of God

From: Volume 13, Issue 1: Spring 2016, Christian Education and Special Needs Ministry Pages 43-58

Abstract

Children’s initial understandings of God are profoundly shaped by their relationships with their earthly parents. Quality Christian parenting will strive to reflect the character of God as a key element in nurturing the child’s emerging relationship with God. Through providing unconditional love with clear boundaries we lay a foundation for children to experience the love and holiness of God.

Key words: parenting, character of God, love, holiness, boundaries
