Rory Shiner is not only a dad of 4 boys but he’s also the pastor of Providence Church. So basically every Sunday is ‘bring your kids to work day’ for Rory. Under the pressure of parenting and pastoring at the same time, Rory says he’s made a few mistakes along the way, but these discovered these tips are pretty helpful when it comes to public parenting.

  1. Never respond in public
  2. Take them aside
  3. Speak quietly
  4. Do everything you can not to humiliate them

It’s not about them humiliating you, it’s about teaching them how to function in society. By preserving their dignity you teach them to preserve their own dignity.

Have a listen to Rory talk a little bit more about this below.
