Lets face it .... one of the hardest most perplexing jobs we are given is to be a parent. Luckily God gives us instructions! The bible tells us in Proverbs 22:6 "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." ... while parenting can have it's difficult times, applying the Word of God to our child rearing and teaching our children to love God can send forth blessings and give us relationships with our children that will be rewarding from generation to generation. While I don't believe in "child abuse" I do believe in correction, as our loving Father above also corrects us. Children need instruction, love, nurturing and above all to be taught God's ways and God's word. Be a good example Parent!!
Ephesians 6:4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord

Psalm 127:3-5 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
Deuteronomy 6:5-7 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

Proverbs 22:15 "Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him."
