1 Corinthians 13:13
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
Understanding that the greatest of virtues is love, should motivate us to realize its power in binding the parents with kids in unity. The key test that shows if the relationship between the parents and children is built on love or not is by the display of fear among the children.
(Some may argue to have some level of healthy fear is good but we need to aim for connection through LOVE as the Bible says perfect love drives out fear).
When the relationship is connected in Love there will be no place for fear, insecurity, hiding and cheating. To grow in Love connection towards children parents need to learn to accept children with out judgment as Jesus accepted them without punishment and fear.
Celebrate and enjoy together with your kids by having fun time for 2 hours. May be outing to park, beach or restaurant without mobile.
Focus is on fun not teaching or lecture so as to drive the fear.
