Christian Parenting 2: Parenting and seeing...


Many of us Christian parents are at a loss today because we lack guidance--and even inner confidence. We have not grown up under that which we desire or, in some cases, our life experiences did not combine to make us those easy-going natural parents with natural affection and a "I love you dearly and you can do it!" attitude towards their children. Many of us try to learn to parent by precepts of men written in books. Years and years can go by and we are still trying to learn... While we cannot make our children saved (witness good king Hezekiah's son Manasseh), Christians can teach their children by scripture precept and by example. We can, in a relaxed manner, make a Christian home, a place where where God and his word are welcomed, magnified, preeminent, overriding, and abiding.
