Teaching our children about God is one of the greatest and yet most frustrating jobs we have as parents. Many parents feel inadequate to teach their children about God, but they shouldn’t. The truth is, inviting questions about God is important and fun. You don’t have to have all of the answers to their questions at first, but you will want to have answers eventually, so dig in with me and challenge yourself to incorporate faith into your parenting!
I’m Meg Meeker, MD. Like you, I’ve known the frustration of arguing with kids, and worrying about whether or not they’ll turn out to be great adults. So whatever you’re feeling today, I’ve been there.
As a pediatrician of over 30 years, I’ve listened to thousands of kids, and watched them grow up. As a mother (of four grown adults, who are now my very best friends) and as a grandmother, I know exactly what it takes to raise great kids. There's a lot of parenting advice out there, and I can say that a whole lot of it is bad. It isn’t based on medical, psychological, or time tested truth. My advice is. And that matters.
The most important thing I’ve learned about my work is this: the best thing I can do to help your kids, is to help you. And I know I can do that.
