How to Co-Parent With the Holy Spirit
2065
Are you parenting with the Holy Spirit? If you’re struggling with that question the answer is that you’re probably not, or at least not very well.

What if you had an ever-present helper in time of need? Someone who was readily available with all the answers and knows your child perfectly. Sounds awesome, right? Well- it’s available to you! 


Welcome to the Coffee, Kids, and Crazy Podcast, a show about creating a heart-to-heart connection with your kids. Your podcast hosts, Brittney Serpell and Seth Dahl, are here to answer your biggest parenting questions so that you can become a powerful parent.

How to Train Kids to Be Responsible With Money

You need a plan for teaching your children how to handle money. If you don’t teach your children good money habits now, you set them up to be irresponsible with it later.

Why You Should Stop Helping Your Kids
1802

It’s okay to help your kids but can you take it too far? The answer is- yes. If you never empower your kids to solve their own problems, they can become dependent on you to solve ALL of their problems. 

This cripples your kids ability to become a powerful person and puts you in a place that only God was meant to occupy. You don’t have to “fix” everything for your kids. You CAN raise powerful sons and daughters.

The Difference Between Discipline & Punishment
2080

What’s the difference between punishment and discipline? When we introduce fear and punishment into our relationship with our children it pushes out love. When we push out love, we push God out because God is love. 

You don’t have to use fear to try and control you kids. You also don’t have to live in a lawless home without discipline or boundaries. It’s possible to have kids who manage themselves and their relationships in a healthy, responsible way.

You can either be leading the conversation or trying to overcome the wrong that’s already been done.
