I love my children. They are great! We have lots of fun together… we laugh… we cry… we dance. I cannot imagine my life without them. They are truly a treasure.

However, someday my children will grow up, and God-willing, be independent, responsible, and Jesus following adults. In order to accomplish that goal, we as parents must guide and train them now (when they are in our care) to be

  • independent,
  • responsible,
  • and Jesus following kind of people

These are the questions I ask myself all the time:

  • What am I doing today to help my kids be independent?
  • What am I doing today to teach my children to be responsible?
  • What am I doing today to train and guide my progeny to love God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength, and to love their neighbor as themselves?

What do you think?

  1. Raising children and helping them to becmome responsible adults is an act of love. Coddeling and pampering them and putting them down is destructive. Building, trusting and training them is a work of love. Giving responsibility and expecting obedience is absolutely essential. You are right, being with them as they learn builds confidence.
    My father taught me more skills more quickly by being with me and then, — expected me to do the tasks on my own.
