Whining, lying, interrupting, complaining, arguing, gossiping. Our tongues are a deadly poison. Are you having trouble dealing with the words of your children? That’s what we will be talking about today.
Scripture says that the tongue is a deadly poison. And that poison comes into the house through the sinful hearts of everyone who lives there – including me. For parents, shepherding our children through these issues can be difficult. How do I handle issues like whining, lying, interrupting, complaining, gossiping? The list keeps going.
