We want to raise our kids by grace, and this means that we interact with them from their earliest memories that in our own strength we can't obey God's commands. That's why they struggle so much to obey, but they need to hear that the incredible power of Jesus' resurrection has the wondrous ability to give us a new heart--a heart that joyfully obeys God's commands. This grace means they can be totally honest about their feelings and their strong urges to disobey, but that Jesus inside can help them listen and obey. They can even learn to take the garbage out with a good attitude.
