This lesson picks up where the previous lesson left off as Jeff continues sharing his personal example. We consider how two other common parenting realities—shame and the fear of punishment—affect every human and work against discipling our kids in the gospel. We then see how Jesus’ work, which atones for guilt and frees us from fear, changes our parenting.
