To Be Known
Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
Train up your child in the way he should go (not how you would respond, or what makes you feel comfortable, but the way he should go). You must realize that God designed your children, and he has plans for them. Ask God today to begin to show you how to parent each child in the way he or she was designed. Become a student of your children by learning their ways and not trying to create little versions of you.
Each child has been wired according to how God created them, so study your child and learn his ways. Celebrate the differences of your child from you. Your child maybe a strong leader and you think to yourself that his will is so strong you cannot work with him. Ask God to instruct you on the best way to parent your strong leader. Thank God for entrusting you with a leader of the next generation. Realize, that even leaders need to be instructed and taught, that is your job as the mom.
Father, give me wisdom to train up my child in the way he should go. I tend to parent with what would work for me, but teach me how to view each child individually. Thank you for blessing me with my children; give me what I need to parent them in a Godly way. Amen
