Train up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.
The behavior of a child/person reflects how he was raised up. If he possesses a bad attitude and hot temperament, the blame goes to the one who brought him up. On the other hand, if someone has good character, credit belongs to the proud guardians who trained and disciplined him when he was still a child.
While the child is still young and does not keep yet the horns of disobedience, use this opportunity to train him that he may live by those teachings. Teach him how to be thrifty that he may learn to value money until he grows up. Teach him to follow so that he may know the right way to go. Teach him to respect so that he too will also be respected. Teach him to study well that a great future may await him. Teach him how to read the Bible and pray every day that he will be guided by God’s words and be used for His glory.
Parents, always make it a point to spend quality time with your children. Sometimes you think working endlessly to earn big and to secure their future is what’s best for them but be aware also that above money and fame what they need is your love and guidance. You arrive from home so exhausted that when the little kid ask for you to play you say “go to your nanny” and worse when you’ve depart home early he’s still asleep and you arrived he’s also sleeping. To discipline and to train a child is your responsibility and not anybody else. The reason why some children grew up rebellious is because they lacked attention and felt unloved.
We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today—Stacia Tauscher.
