Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Who has the spiritual authority in your life?

In many - perhaps most - families, parents and children often find themselves in conflict, sometimes seriously so.

Q: I homeschool my three children, ages are 8, 6 and 5. The older two have a very poor attitude about doing schoolwork, especially math, and the younger one is starting to pick up on it. Their poor attitudes make the lessons take longer, and they complain and cry about finishing their assignments.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Allow God to get his Word in

In our world, opinions come from all over. Just ask a question, and you'll get someone to let you know what they think, and possibly what you and everyone else should think.

If you don't think so, read "Dear Abby" or "Soundoff" for a few days! The topic doesn't necessarily have to be difficult or controversial.
