In The Loop with Andy Andrews, hosted by David Loy


In this episode, we answer a listener’s question on raising children.


Don’t just raise great kids. Raise kids who become great adults.

  • You can force your child to be a great kid, but only while they’re in front of you.
  • Teach them how to think, not what to think.
  • Teaching a child how to think requires long conversations about what you believe and how you came to believe that.
  • Spend time with your children one-on-one.


Discipline your children while they are young.

  • Most parents excuse bad behavior while their kids are young and grow more strict as they age, causing them to push back.
  • If you focus on disciplining your children while they’re two and three, you can loosen the rules when they’re teenagers.
  • Teach them self-discipline.


Tune in to hear a Bible verse on parenting that is commonly misinterpreted.
