Five Minute Friday ~ When
W henever my children are
H ome with me I will strive to treat them
Equally and let them know that our Father in heaven will
N ever let them go
My 11 year old son has autism, and my 13 year old daughter says that I treat her brother totally different than her. I have tried to explain the differences in them to her, but she doesn’t quite get the big picture. I do discipline them a bit differently and I talk to him in a different way than I talk to her.
I want to treat my children as our Father treats all of us. He loves us no matter what. Everyone is a child of God and that’s it. I want my children to know that even if I do treat them a little bit different, I love them both the same and I will always be their mother.
I encourage both of my kids to talk to me about anything. I say what my mom said to me…whatever it is just tell me and we will get through it. This is the same with our Father in heaven. We can go to Him no matter what the situation is, and He will help us get through it.
