Driving your kids angry . . .

How To Provoke Your Children To Anger

Came across this great article on thinking through ways that we can provoke our children to wrath.

Here are the top ones that I struggle with:

– By constantly criticizing them and not encouraging them.  When they feel they can never please us enough.

– By always lecturing them and never listening to them

– By disciplining them for childishness or weakness, not for sin

– By failing to ask their forgiveness when we sin against them

“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger . . . ” (Ephesians 6:4)

Which ones do you struggle with?
