Pastor Paul uses the analogy of cooking ribs to parenting children. He talks about the perfect father and while no human man will ever be, we can direct our kids to the one who is, God. We can be the example and encouragement to cultivate and grow a relationship with Jesus. However, we cannot ask them to do what we do not.
Everyone's way is the best way
Every father's parenting style is unique do it
Laid back(Friend) vs. Overly Aggressive (Dictator)

Speaking Wisdom into your child's life
