If you asked me the single most important insight that has shaped my parenting, it would be this: Children are people.
It seems self evident.
Clearly, they have arms, legs, ears, noses and mouths—enough to qualify. But the idea of their personhood goes far beyond possessing a human body. It goes to the core of their being and speaks to their worth. Children bear the image of God, just like adults. Well, not just like adults.
