Authoritative Parenting To Grace

Before you read my story you need to understand that the authoritarian home I was raised in wasn’t my parents fault.

They did their best with the knowledge and resources they had at the time, given that they were raised in similar home conditions.

I do not fault or blame them in any way.

In fact, I love them.

Raised In An Authoritarian-Style Home

You see, I was raised in an authoritarian-style home where rules and expectations were set out by my parents from a very early age.

You can call this militaristic if you’d like, but I quickly learned that I needed to comply with specific expectations and there was very little grace for mistakes, because none was shown or taught to them in their youth.

This type of parenting style isn’t uncommon, but it doesn’t necessarily lead to happy and secure children.

In fact, I often found myself questioning my choices and feeling an underlying sense of guilt for not doing what I was told.

Although my childhood family had difficult days, we also created some of the sweetest memories together out of love.

I will always be thankful for the lessons my parents taught me and the lasting impact it has had on my life today.

Because Relationships Are Complicated

I’d be lying if I said I never had any issues related to my past.

But what helped me most was my study of the scriptures and coming to truly know that “the same Son of God who atoned for my sins is the same Redeemer who will also save those who have hurt me. I could not truly believe the first truth without believing the second*.”

Because relationships are complicated and enjoying peace in your family’s life requires a little bit of sacrifice and a huge amount of heaven’s help.

This is where I learned that forgiveness and love go hand in hand.

I discovered that not only can we forgive, but we can also seek to understand our loved ones better through shared experiences and open communication.

I have come to learn that while the authoritarian style of parenting may have grown out of a need for control, it is ultimately damaging to those involved.

And This Was Tested When I Became A Mother Myself

I decided to take what I had learned from my own experience and apply it to the home life of my family.

So, I began a journey into learning more about positive parenting practices and found ways to incorporate them into our home.

My goal is to create an atmosphere where each one of my children can grow and thrive, knowing that their needs are recognized and respected.

It has been an ongoing process of trial, error, learning, and growth.

Through prayer, patience, and understanding I have seen amazing results in my children’s behavior as well as their relationships with one another.

Tell Me If This Is You & Your FamilyYou

Love your family, but you want to find a better way to strengthen the relationships you have with each member.

Want everyone to respect each other – parents and children alike while growing closer in your relationship.

Love spending time together as a family, but desperately long to connect on a deeper level.

I believe your home can be filled with loving family connections, no matter your circumstances.
