Lonliness in Parenting

Dear Parent,

Have you ever noticed that loneliness sometimes has nothing to do with being alone. You can be completely surrounded by people and noise and chaos and feel completely alone and then be by yourself in the quiet of your bedroom and feel content and loved by those that don’t happen to be there at the moment?

As the parent of a teenager, at any point in time you could be in the thick of your teenagers friends only to have them all vanish to another teens house in the blink of an eye depending on who has the best junk food at the moment!

Time Alone is Opportunity

So it’s not even their presence that determines whether or not you feel alone. It’s how you handle the struggle of raising them that determines that.

Sometimes we need to be alone physically so that we can get our heads around what we are trying to do at the moment. Even Jesus Himself needed time away from everyone so that He could truly talk to God and focus on the necessary. But there is one thing that Jesus did that sometimes we neglect to do. During those times that He retreated from everyone, He spent it talking to God. And then He listened.

So much of parenting seems to be done in the moment and then we are left with questions of whether or not we did it right! If we will take some time being alone in order to learn what parenting should look like, then we will spend much less time feeling as if we are alone in it.

Walking/praying with you,

Mark
