Parenting Tips, Advice on Children Obeying Parents
Children Obeying Parents
Raising children today is not easy because children are influenced by negativity of television, their peers, music, and their environment around them. Many children actually want correct guidance; they want to be taught "right from wrong." Some children are left alone if their father and mother are at work or absent from the home. But children can still be disciplined properly when one parent is absent from the home, and the other parent is working. Whichever parent is home with the children can make time to interact with their children, to correct them.
Moms and Dads can use guidance for their children through the Holy Bible. That means that moms and dads would have to practice what they preach. It's alright to let your child know that you are not perfect, and that you as a parent are learning new things about life everyday as well.
It's a good idea to pray together as a family; our God in heaven hears our prayers. God created us and He loves us even in our sinful ways. Children will want to do better when they see at least one of their parents acting on doing better also. Children need nurturing, guidance, love, discipline, correction, and prayer.
All children need to be understood and respected, and parents deserve the same in return.
When families pray to God together, the best thing to pray for is "Godly wisdom." Praying for wisdom can help your child in every area of their life. When children are stilling living in the home, they should obey their parent's rules. Most parents will not intentionally steer their child in the wrong direction. Parents aim to raise their children to become upstanding adults. No parent wants their child to grow up and be a menace to society. There are some children that have lost their way a bit. Most children can be guided on the right path with verses from the Bible.
It's better to raise a child up in the way they should go, so that when they are older they will not depart from it. The people that are in your child's daily life can have an effect on their behavior. As the saying goes "you are the company you keep."
Some children today are into electronics like; video games, computers, iPads, iPods, etc. But there have to be balance in daily life activities; children should do chores in the home, study their homework, and be a good citizen in society. A child is a joy to their parents when they are raised with the rod of correction, which is the word of God. Children are a gift from God to their parents.
Each household with children should have house-rules, morals, chores, happiness, kindness, and prayer. Parents need to praise their children for the things that they do right. Giving praise to your child will make your child want to do more good things in life. It's best to make sure that your child is not rewarded for their bad and misbehaved behavior. Children from ages 1-19 need to know that there are consequences for bad behavior. After kids are all grown up and are in their 20s they will still need parental guidance from their parents, due to love.
The Word of God Cleanses
The word of God can help cleanse people from their bad habits and negative behavior. Many families read their Bible at least once a week. To be consistent with reading your Bible 1-2 times a week, set an alarm timer on your cell phone for a certain time and day of the week. You as a parent and your family would have to stay in God's word to notice any progress; you'll be happy that you did. If we keep God (The Most High) in our lives by reading our Bible, He will stay in our lives. Adults may think that their children are not listening when the Bible verses are being taught, just when you think that they aren't listening actually they really are listening (just keep reading the Word).
You and your child will notice a difference in their attitude and actions, when they word of God is used to correct their ways. A child that has rotten and evil ways is a sorrow to their parents.
One thing that can help a child with daily home activities is to make a check list for the child to follow. The check list will consist of chores, homework, teeth brushing, bathing, and maybe some errands.
