WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

Traditional parenting seems to be conforming toward more flexible ways of parenting. Today’s discipline discourages spanking and stress using some form of reverse psychology, such as the points system. It is a fact that children are going through a growth process at different stages as they grow and develop; therefore, defiance and control becomes tools used to get their way much of the time. The question is, “Are we successful at child rearing or has the process become one of rearing more focused independent children?” The future generation will be leaders, teachers, and so much more; will they be effectively equipped to step into their designed purpose for life?

Proverbs Wisdom teaching is not outdated but should be a part of the process in healthy growth and development. For the scripture reminds you this way; God has no use for the prayers of the people who won’t listen to him (Proverbs 28: 9; MGS).

Discipline your children while you still have the chance; indulging them destroys them (Proverb 19:18; MGS)

Fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge… (Proverb 1: 7; NKJV)

Children are a heritage from the Lord… (Psalm 127: 3)

Children who lash out against their parents are an embarrassment and disgrace (19:26)

Point your children in the right direction—when they’re old they won’t be lost (22:6)

Young people are prone to foolishness and fads; the cure comes through tough-minded discipline (22:15)

Don’t be afraid to correct your young ones, a spanking, in fact might save them from something worse than death (23:13-14)

As parents, children are entrusted to your care for a while in which molding and shaping their lives becomes your responsibility. It is wise to examine the scripture for guidance while applying your daily teachings and instructions in the process.

  1. My brother. Thank you for your comments about my post on The Day Of Preparation. You are very kind, and a very trusted saint of our Lord and Savior, Jesus. Please have a blessed day.

  2. So very true. Satan is of this world…… we can see what Satan has done to our home and family lives through his misleading and deceptions on how we should raise our children. “Raise your children in the way they should go and they won’t sway far from it.” That just might mean “spare the rod and spoil the child.” Or, it might mean that if “you plant the seeds of righteousness in your child when they are young – and others water that seed as they grow – then that child will grow, become fruitful and multiply and his/her children will be a blessing to your life. Amen!

      Thank you very much friend for your thoughts on this important subject. Be Blessed my friend. Much love Shirley

      • You are quite welcome. I agree; this is an important subject of which needs a greater amount of literature posted on it. I do not believe people understand that the children and not their child’s friend. many parent, and I know a few, want to be friends to their children and I see the ill-effects of that leadership.

        May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless you and yours.

        Yours in Christ;
        Michael
