Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”
Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.

Using patience, perseverence and much prayer, you will find progress. I like what she said, "Progress not Perfection". Parents, we can be so hard on ourselves. We don't have to be, lets find peace in the simplicity of prayer and perseverence.
I know I am already seeing great results, not just in my children, but in Papa Bear and I. The way we handle each other and our children is the same way they will handle their sibling(s) and friendships. I've taught Sister Bear to pray for her unkind friends (walk away and quietly in the moment say a little prayer) instead of getting into an argument, it helps to simmer down the negative emotions that can stir and build more intense emotions. Little girls are really good at this! It's teaching her to depend on God and not get caught up in "man". She's sharing Jesus more with others (even strangers) and taking a stand for Him and testifying His strength, courage and guidance. The Lord delights in this and Sister Bear honors and obeys His commands.
