Pardon the Mess Podcast (Ep 1.2): “It Really is Okay to Let Our Kids Fail” with Christian Counselor Mia Mbroh

Do we rob our kids of the ability to trust God by constantly intervening when we see them struggling? What if our efforts to provide and protect are the actual barriers to their success? In this podcast we talk with Christian counselor Mia Mbroh about whether failure is important or overrated, how a Christian parent should respond to a child who is struggling, and how stop parenting out of our own wounds from the past. She asks us “is God still good enough for us, even in the difficult times?” and expands on how our behavior often answers this question with a resounding “no.” Mia gives us practical ways we can love our children by letting them fail – by choosing to walk with them through their failure instead of always trying to take the pain away.  (Today’s podcast references Deuteronomy 8:17-18, the Heroes of the Bible, Proverbs 3:5-6)
