Do you believe in Behavior Modification?

Do you believe in Behavior Modification?
There are some parents struggling with how to handle unwanted behaviors exhibited by their children.  This is even more of a struggle for those in a blended family.  How are parents to respond to their children when they are disrespectful, obnoxious, or even abusive toward you?  Are you frustrated and at your wits end? Do you find yourself “walking on eggshells”  or as a step-parent looking for an escape?  Have you tried talking, screaming, punishing, pleading, and negotiating—but the child stills tries to walk all over you?
 
 
All youth misbehave badly over the course of  time. But when defiance, hostility and refusal to comply are ongoing, the behavior affects the entire family and requires a more serious intervention. Parents must discovery the right tools and execute by using the right tools to bring about the desired result in modifying the child’s behavior.  So where does the Word of God come into play?
 
 
Proverbs 22:6  (KJV)
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
The Message (MSG)
Point your kids in the right direction—
    when they’re old they won’t be lost.

It is crucial for all parents to understand that rasining a child may be challenging but it does require the Spirit of god to be able to lay the correct foundation. Ps 127:3 (AMP) state that children are a heritage from God and that the fruit of the womb is his reward. first and foremeost we have to understand that children are a blessing from god no matter how they arrived here (conception). Too many times we place our hangups on our children so we often decide to not do something as parents that we either disagreed with growing up or that we wanted or wished would have occurred growing up. Example: my parents were too strict on me...or would not let me do ______. so in turn we become our childrens' friend or we may be too lax on discipline. Discipline itself is a three stage process of 1. identifying the wrong behavior, 2. providing the expected behavior, 3. reinforcing the love of the child and processing the results of both the wrong and right behaviors. However in the current trend of blended families this can be a diffiuclt taks, but not impossible. the first issue is for both parents to relaize that there is no such thing as a step-parent in God's eyes. In the case of Jesus though by nature He is god's son born of a virgin, Joseph was still commissioned to raise him as his son. Moses was raised in Pharoah's house as a son though his parents were always close by. Too often we find ways to separate in our families and homes. If the parents are getting married and have children they both must set the tone for the household that this was God's intended purpose for this family to be One becuase of a greater purpose. I give the example of the Brady Bunch. Not once on that show did you ever here the children say to either parent 'You are not my Momma or You are not my Daddy. However in todays culture that is common place, but it was born from the parents not from the children. One method of establishing this is that the very first moment one child decides to go down that path of being disrepsepctful to the other parent is for thie biological parent to not tolerate the disrepsect. I have found by experience that too many times African American Mothers often shield their children from the new Father as a sign of loyalty to the childs biological father, and also vice versa. If there is no unified front in the home from even before the marriage is consumated, the recipe lends to a long road of hard labor verses labor. In a country and region where family and community is defined by individualism moreso than being entrenched and dependent upon each other, it presents a special challenge. It used to be tht in the Black community we lived by "It takes a village to raise a child" which was driven by the local congregation because the Sunday School teacher was also the Principal at the High school, and the Deacon was also the Barber down the street. We must turn to the book of Judges to see our current state for in this time we live we have become a group similar to them. We have a generation that serves and knows the Lord, and then a generation that rejects and is estranged from God.

Behavior Modification is essential in the development of not only children, but ourselves as well. We all sin and fall short of the glory of God. When our children act out, you could recite, God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Or you could recite Psalms 20- The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble.......... Now after speaking the word of God, and praying unto God, you now have the endowment to modify. When we are rattled by our children, many times we are very hard on them, but God relieves confusion with love, direction, discipline, and fun!!!!
