Parenting in Paradox

Parenting in Paradox

I was reminded of this need for balance and discernment when I read David Murray’s excellent article on “Patient Parenting.” Murray claims to have started off as the second most impatient man in the world and if he really did try to teach his four- and five-year-old sons Hebrew as he writes, he may not be exaggerating. Writing from the perspective of an impatient (=zealous?) Christian, he urges the balance of patience in the parenting process.
