Religion can make you a better parent in many ways, but for me personally I use a lot of scripture in my parenting. My family and I have 2 scriptures that are sort of the bedrock of everything that we do. And one is whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. Now this of course is the original think positive maxim, but it's not just wishful thinking. It's not just the glass is half full. It's based on God. It's based on something that is solid, so it has some weight to it. The other scripture we use all the time is do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Now this is the ultimate battle cry for overcoming and courage. And it's a really good mood busters. If you have a bad mood, it works really well. Okay, you can make your way through it. It's great.
