Train up a Child

The Family. The Children

One of the things I strive to do is address some of the many things that have an affect on the family.  I address them from a Biblical stand point.  Those that do not believe in God or have an issue with God and the Church many not find what I say helpful.  But I will continue to do all I can to help the family and help our children.

One of the things I think about all the time is how God said to train up a child in the way they should go.  When a child is born, they do not know anything.

Taking a Stand For Standards

I met an amazing lady this morning.  She is 82 years and still driving and working at one of the largest department stores in the United States.  Just talking with her reminded me of how blessed I am.  She was so lively and grateful for her life.

Recently I had been praying to the Lord about some things.  This amazing lady was used of God to give me some of my answers.

As you know, I believe in helping children be their best.  Part of that includes teaching them things.  In order to teach someone something, you have to have a foundation and material.

Children and Electronics

A subject that is very dear to me is how and when children begin to use electronics.  I am a firm believer that a child should not have access to a cell phone, lap top, tablet or television during the first 5 years of their lives.  I know, it sound like a long time, but it is worth the wait for the child.  The first five years of a child's life are the informative years.  It is during this time that time should be spent helping the child learn to live without electronics.

Children Have to Be Taught!!

I had a conversation with a lady the other day.  During the conversation she spoke about how unruly children are today; yelling at parents, making demands, being disrespectful, being disobedient, how you can not tell them anything, and if you do the parents get offended.

i thought about what she said.  And, she is right.  Not all children, but too many than it should be.

I believe in training or teaching children right from wrong.  According to the word of God, He said to train them up in the way they should go.

Just a Little Time

It is so easy to be busy.  It is so easy to just, run out of time.  But, if you have children, you need to make time.  A parent has a limited time to mold, influence their children.  Getting and being involved with your child on a day to day basis will help reduce behavior issues as they grow.

Take the time.  Make the time.  It will be worth it in the end.

Parents as Examples

Parents are the first example a child will learn from.  Therefore, it is important for parents to set and be good examples.  A child is born with a clean slate so to speak.  They have no sin.  There mind is clean.  There heart is clean.  Every parent should ask themselves, 'what do I want to impress on this clean mind and clean heart?'

We are going to take a few weeks to look at this.  Our children are important and so loved by the Lord.  Therefore we parents must take heed how we treat them and what we teach them.
