Common Vision Creation

Support Call 1-29-16

This call covers:

  • Dad and children are constantly teasing each other and husband can't take criticism. It's creating lots of problems.
  • Husband and 15-year-old son are addicted to media, mostly the son. Video games have made him a different child. 
  • When it's okay and not okay to compare with your children.

Support Call 10-14-15

This call covers:

  • Children age 6 and 3. How do I know what their traits are at this age?
  • I'm having a hard time sharing our family vision with my older children who are no longer living with us. Any ideas?
  • My husband doesn't help me implement new skills and leaves it to me. My 12-year-old son thinks he's a bad child. And, I'm trying to find God's will for me and my family.

Support Call 9-18-15

This call covers:

  • My child, age 6, can't even look at me when I'm giving him an instruction. How can he follow an instruction if he can't even look at me?
  • My 5-year-old son is great at telling me what to do when he earns an extra chore, but when he actually earns one, he goes completely out of control. What do I do?
  • My husband doesn't like to participate in family meetings. Is it possible to have meetings without Dad? Can we still have family unity?
  • My children don't like to redo things when they do something wrong. How do I help them participate in redoing a situation?
  • How many times can you go into the Rule of Three? My son keeps getting distracted and I'll start it, then he'll calm down. But three minutes later, we'll be back in the same place all over again. How does this work exactly?
