‘Don’t Try to Raise a Good Kid’ — Lysa TerKeurst On Parenting a ’Strong-Spirited’ Child

Mamas, if you’re not already following Lysa TerKeurst on social media, consider this your homework for today. The Proverbs 31 Ministries Founder and President is always sharing little nuggets about life, love, faith, and parenting, and ladies — you cannot afford to miss out on the wisdom God has gifted her with.

Recently, Lysa TerKeurst took to Facebook with a message to the mom who is raising a ‘strong-spirited’ child.

Having raised 5 children of her own, this mama has been there. She’s walked through these trenches, and she knows how challenging it can be.

“I remember the days of crying all the way home from play dates feeling sure I was the worst mom in the world because my toddler could not be contained,” she writes. “She was so determined. So independent. So insistent.”

Raising a strong-spirited child can be challenging. Trust me. I know.
