In my video Strengthening the Bond, I discussed the importance of proper parenting. There should be nothing in our lives more important than the proper upbringing of our children. After all, the very redemptive power of God that we experienced should be passed on to our children according to God’s word. [Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.] Our priority should be to protect and guide our children to prepare them for their future. From the time they are born, til the time they are adults, we should instill the truth in them and teach them to uphold righteousness at all costs.
With that being said, I ran across this article and could not believe what I was reading. In the article, Will Smith gives parenting techniques that are being hailed as the “modern family formula” by many in the world and in the church. Please read this article and pray for the next generation.
KENDAL FISHER of E News Reports: Will Smith has been a big advocate of allowing his kids to be as open as they want with him throughout their childhood. However, as they have continued to get older—especially Willow Smith—he’s started to realize there are just some things he doesn’t want to know.
Jada Pinkett Smith’s husband sat down with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Thursday and opened up about one of the couple’s parenting techniques: the “Circle of Safety.”
Will explained how, when the kids were really young, they created this circle in which Willow and Jaden Smith were allowed to tell them anything they wanted—even all the bad things they might have done.
“They’re allowed to tell us everything that they did [in the circle of safety], and they can’t get in trouble,” Will said. “The rule is, if we find out after the circle of safety that there was something you didn’t say, there was hell to pay.”
However, now that Willow is in her teenage years, she’s still telling them everything, and Will isn’t so sure he’s still interested in listening.
“As a father, you do not want a circle of safety with a 15-year-old daughter. You do not,” he laughed. “I’m like, ‘Baby, you need to start lying!'” He continued, joking about trying to get out of the circle, “[I’m like] ‘Nope! You and your mom can talk about that one!'”
Of course, this not-so-standard parenting technique is just one of the many things Will and Jada have revealed over the years when it comes to raising their kids.

Strengthening the Bond is a must for all parents, teens, and leaders! With the rise in broken marriages, homes, and families, we need a reality check. Where is this going? What happens when marriage is no longer a sacred institution and the norm is for children to be born to single or same sex parents? What will happen to our education system when 90% of our youth are sexually active? What will happen to our youth if they continue to eat unhealthy foods, watch unhealthy television programming, and continue to contract STD’s at a 1 to 4 ratio? If we as a people don’t stand up now we won’t have any say in these matters later on. We must stand up NOW! G. Craige Lewis delivers a powerful message to all families and breaks down the proper structure of the home and God’s original formula for success in the home. There is no hope for our future unless we first “Strengthen the Bond” of our families! Click here to get your copy now!
