Train them with the Word.

Laws, Modernization and Globalization have caused some parents to abandon their responsibilities. What an error!

It’s the responsibility of the parents to train up their kids in the way of the LORD. That’s what the Word says: “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6).”

Some parents would say, “We try not to impose anything on our children; we just let them make their decisions themselves.” What an error! The Bible says, “Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him (Proverbs 22:15).”

Children aren’t allowed to make their own decisions; they need to be trained and guided. Parents have a responsibility to know through the Spirit of GOD, what their children should be, and raise them in that direction.

Some parents act as though GOD said, “Leave the children to me, and I’ll determine how they’ll grow up”; HE didn’t say that. Rather, HE said parents should train up the child in the way he should go. If you already have children, let the HOLY SPIRIT guide you in bringing them up in righteousness. Keep training them in the Word. Even when it looks as though they’re not imbibing the culture of the Word, keep at it, and don’t despair.

Give some time; the results of the training will be evident. Soon enough, they’ll come into the right place, and be all that GOD destined for them to be.
Glory to GOD for ever and ever.
Thank You LORD for Thy Word in JESUS NAME.

Dear Holy Father, I thank you, for your Word has in it, the ability to make me what it talks about, and produce in me, and in those you’ve placed in my care, and unalloyed commitment to you. We’re yielded to the Lordship of JESUS CHRIST, and to the guidance, and tutelage of the Spirit, in JESUS’ NAME.

The way I look at it children will only act according to how the parents,and government allows them to act.

Eph 6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
Eph 6:2 Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise.
Eph 6:3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
Eph 6:4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Children obeying and honoring their parents is the first commandment with promise,for the children learn humbleness,and to obey authority,and have a better chance to respect authority,and more likely to accept God and His rule over them.

But parents also have a responsibility to make sure they act right towards their children,and set a good example.

Look at the 1960's rebelling against authority,and do your own thing,have your own way,and be your own boss,and away they go.

A lot of parents are now relaxed in morals,druggies,drunkards,law breakers,short with their children.

The leave it to Beaver days are gone.

Children find it hard to obey their parents when their parents do not do what is right.

Oh,mom and pop,you are going to tell what to do,and I should obey you,but ole' pops got pulled over for a DUI,put on probation,and ordered to abstain from alcohol,but did not obey the law but drank every day like his drunken butt will do,and got busted,and did a stint for 6 months in jail,and then got out,and still drinks and drives,and yells all the time with a short temper,and smokes weed,and steals things.

And you mommykins,cheated on ole' popparoni 5 times with 5 different men,and drinking,and smoking crack,and stealing things from work,but you are going to tell me to act right,and if not you are going to take away my nintendo,and playstation,and x-box,and motorcycle,stereo,television,car,worldly contact.

And that is another thing with spoiling the children then they become whining brats demanding things.

The parents are supposed to be the ones in charge,but a lot of children try to put their input in to the mix,and assert their authority,which God told us of the last days where children are disobedient to parents,and the last generation where the children will curse their father,and will not bless their mother.

And the government,and parents,allow the children to watch television,like married with children,and movies,where the children are out of hand,and rebellious,and being immoral,like parties.

A lot of parents say the children do not behave the way they did years ago,but whose fault is it because of that.

Is it the parent's fault,or the children's fault.
