I have found that “children are born persons” has been the biggest light-bulb for me. It underpins everything else and has convicted me left and right in parenting and homeschooling. When viewed through the lens of: what does this human, who is NOT me and never will be anything that I can exert my own will on or “mold”, what does this human need?–I can make much better decisions, I can be more patient and take things less personally when they don’t go well. It forces me to trust God with the outcome and to approach my children with tremendous respect, even reverence for the image of God that is present within their little bodies.
