"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it" (Proverbs 22:6).

Raising a child can be a daunting and, at times, completely overwhelming task. Why not approach it with the help of the world's greatest repository of wisdom—the Bible?

Child of God

In a book that I have been recently studying by Allison Bottke, she made an observation that really struck my heart. She said, “A growing child is presented with one of two paths, survival or development.” She continued on by saying, “If a child is abused, neglected, abandoned, ignored or made to assume adult responsibilities, she must focus her attention and energy on survival.” But “if a child is not chronically frightened and confused, he is free to expand into the developmental tasks presented to him as he grows up.”

Teaching is accomplished by words and by examples. Parents and other adults must be good role models, practicing what they preach.
