The more I work with parents as well as parent my own children I have come to the revelation that parenting is not a science but rather an art. You see in science, chemistry specifically, you can use a certain formula and get the exact same outcome every time. You can control the input and outcome of the scientific process. But as a parent you can "pour in" the same amount of love, discipline, and morals into each one of your children and get different outcomes.

If you have little ones, you may find yourself trying to meet all their needs, which leaves limited personal time. Two months after the arrival of our 1-year-old son, I’m still adjusting to his schedule! I find that once he’s asleep, I’m spent – I’ve got nothing left; zero energy! So, I had to make adjustments to my prayer and devotional time.
How are you doing in praying for your children?
