“Good parenting starts before he even gets to the point of being out of control. Good parenting is getting up in the middle of the night, getting up in the middle of the night and praying for your child. Good parenting is letting your child know that you love them regardless of what they are and who they are and showing them the way by example.

“Not one time on this video have you heard me use profanity. Not one time on this video have you heard me put my son down. What’s important is that you learn to know Jesus Christ, and when you learn to know Jesus Christ, he will show you how to handle your kid.”

It’s time for me to discipline my kid the tough way! Why? I don’t play that!
