Spy Kids

with Ron Deal | January 2, 2019

When my kids were young they enjoyed the movie, "Spy Kids." Now if you have children living between two homes don't ask your child to be a spy for you. Questions like, "is your dad still dating that woman," or "how can she afford to give that to you?" put your child into a loyalty bind that makes them feel guilty for loving people. It hurts your child. So instead give your kids your permission for them to love others. It won't take anything away from you but it's a huge blessing to them.
