Patience, patience patience.
As parents we must remember that all of us including our children are born in sin.
Psalms 51:5 “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.”
That proves our children will lie at times, despise at times and rebel at times. As kids you and I did too. But our parents didn’t kill us although it might have felt like they was trying to, lol.
Proverbs 22:15 “Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.”
Don’t beat the child to death. also you parents with very light skinned children beware of bruising. They’ll go to school and some dumb teacher will mistake a small bruise that came from you grabbing the child to sit down and think you were abusing the child. Next thing you know you in jail and your children taken from you. That’s why we need our own schools and our own educators.
Remember, no one ever said raising children is easy, it’s not and especially when it comes to teaching them.
The scriptures make mention of a remarkable sister in relation to her seven sons.
2 Maccabees 7:27 “But she bowing herself toward him, laughing the cruel tyrant to scorn, spake in her country language on this manner; O my son, have pity upon me that bare thee nine months in my womb, and gave thee suck three years, and nourished thee, and brought thee up unto this age, and ENDURED THE TROUBLES OF EDUCATION.”
Did you catch what she said? She ENDURED the TROUBLES of education. Some parents require counseling in regards to raising children because they themselves may have come from an abusive and hateful family or never had a family being raised in a foster home. We all come from different backgrounds but regardless of our past personal problems, we are new creatures in Christ. We must learn how to be good and proper parents.
Some sisters have a better understanding of how to deal with children. They know that No two children are the same, they each have different personalities and sisters have various techniques to get these children to be quiet and learn. The key is to Watch their children, are their children well behaved and happy or if their child gets out of hand notice how quickly and easily the sister is able to quiet the situation, and the child goes back to playing joyfully.
Titus 2:3 “The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,”
We have a big job, and sisters we need y’all to step up your game.
