When one shows respect
to a child, the child's self-respect
grows. It can be dangerous
not to teach a child to respect others.
Parents need to teach their
children about how to learn. And, teach them about who will be teaching
them and about what and how they are to be taught.

can just as easily be associations that are communistic in decisions and
actions, thus aimed at controlling others; the antithesis
of high consciousness.freedom.
We see it in medicine and health care, religion, law societies
and various other orders of control where freedom is relinquished
for what often proves out to be dictates.
Information for regulation is good if it causes no harm:.Romans
13:10. Associations become controllers of information and thus actions
when they impose
regulations proving restrictive to alternate helpful practices.
Parents need to teach their
children to think over what they learned and experienced that day. At bedtime
is a good time for this. Teach your children that the teacher puts in a
lot of time to prepare for what is presented to the class. Teach your children
that the teacher is to be respected.
Teach your children that if they are to take full advantage of what was
taught that day they must pay close attention and take notes that will,
in their evening thinking time, help them to recall what was earlier explained
to them by the teacher.
Some Christians reason anything
to do with the self is bad. Perhaps
they always think of themselves as being bad. Emmanuel died for our 'selves'
so we could also live as we never have before:.1Thessalonians
We need to remove from our
hearts any false philosophy about what
it takes to be righteous. If you have
love in your heart, what bad can you do?.Romans
Children need to be taught
what's good to do and how to do good. Anytime love is expressed in actions
of concern for others, the attitude of God is
Children need to develop
in order to handle all life will throw at them. A resilient child is one
who understands knowledge that can affect his life positively. A resilient
child has good communicative skills, self control and a
good heritage. A resilient child doesn't dislike himself and is not
on himself, seeking instead for consistent improvement in human relations.
Teach them to be careful

Teach them to clean up after

have found that environment can have a significant
effect upon intelligence, as
well as future. Children have a better chance of becoming high achievers
following their interest, if they are made to develop the habit of study
in what it is they may be interested in. If they have no specific interest,
then the parents are not involving themselves in quality experiences with
the child to guide and help him or her as they see how the child does in
various activities and/or studies.
many parents sacrifice their children on their own altar of selfishness.
They are sowing the wind in the child and risk reaping the whirlwind:.Hosea
-Making good citizens:.Be
doing good things with your children, not for them when they are
able to just as easily do them. Teach them to do good things when apart
from you, when you are not looking; just because they should have the character
to want to do them. This will help them as they grow through life. To teach
them one must be involved with them. You'll either let them become spoiled
brats or train them to become good citizens:.Proverbs

'appreciate by being a blessing to').their

After trying baby sitters
about 8 times I'd had it! Each time we went out without the children something
happened. Finally I got the message.
From then on, we took the
kids everywhere with us, even on our anniversary. It was more than worth
it! How else can kids begin to think like adults unless they learn by interacting
with adults? Don't you think that through seeing how mom and dad act and
react and adapt in various situations and respond to mixed comments from
others, that they will retain approaches and information both immediately
and later helpful for their expression?
-Always be alert to what
your child is up to.(Proverbs
and in his being creative.
Be alert for his talents,
the things a child naturally adheres
to. He will get good at those things he develops a love towards. And with
encouragement, he will develop a love toward those things.
The devil's trick is to get
your children 'wasted', that is, waste their time, submerge any talent
and eventually get them against
themselves, so they'll waste their life in every way possible.
Here it is also important
to be alert to what's coming into the child's mind:.Proverbs
