Ron: Different kid, different parenting.

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

Ron: Proverbs 22:6 (ESV) says, “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” That’s a promise, right? Train them up right and they’ll never stray. No, actually, the emphasis of the verse is on the child, not the path. Train up a child according to their natural bent, in the way he or she is designed to go. In other words, move them toward their giftedness and strengths.

Now, that is challenging enough, but imagine becoming a foster parent or stepparent. Where do you start? What do they need from you? Study the child. Talk to their parent. And pray for the insight to help them be who God has designed them to be.

For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
