If you have been listen to our show for very long you know I’m a life coach and pastors wife, but you may not know I am the mother of three wonderful kids. Today it’s my privilege to have one of my children in the studio with me. Jen is visiting from Denver and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to share with our listening audience how to develop a relationship with your adult children.

Today’s Verse: Proverbs 22:6

“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”

The truth is: often we are more like our parents than we care to admit.


Life Coach Tammy’s One-Minute Tip

1) Listen to what they are saying

Our kids are telling us what they think, feel, believe and embrace. We must learn to be fully present when our children are sharing. Distractions translate disinterest. A wise parent is a listening parent.

2) Encourage them in their dreams

Your children are individuals, not robots.  Let them have their own identity. Allow them to pursue their personal passion and interest. It may not be what you thought or had in mind for them, but it is not your choice to make.

3) Be their Prayer warrior

More powerful than anything you can do,  give, or be is to pray. Pray for salvation, protection, and direction. Prayer also will reveal your intention and motive for your children.


Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
