Ron: A foolish child will make your soul ache.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Twice in Proverbs 17 the author points out that a foolish child brings grief and bitterness to a parent’s heart. And, in my experience, if there’s a stepparent involved their heart aches, too. Now, they may not fully understand the situation, but they care deeply about the child. Sometimes they want to help. But if the biological parent feels paralyzed to do anything they may block the stepparent from helping and that will complicate it even more.

Hey, it’s never too late. Don’t give up. Come together as parents, find help, and learn ways to fight for the heart of your child. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
