Children should be well nurtured and cared for. They are the hope of their parents and their countries. For a country to have a bright and promising future, the children must be made to inculcate good morals, principles and etiquette. This is evident in Proverb 22:6 “train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it”.
How we raise our children is very pertinent in this century. Children are seeds. They grow and develop into what they have been taught. They follow what you do even when it is wrong. We must raise children who can think critically and provides solutions not those who intensify problems. People celebrates great inventors, analysts and critical thinkers. Your children are not left out.
It is imperative every parent raises children that are God fearing. Nurture offsprings who have the fear of God. The Bible says “the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. It is the most predominant factor in raising successful children. When children fear God wisdom flows in them.
Raising children successfully is beyond providing food and clothes though they are important. It depends largely on the values instilled in them. Values include confidence, positive mindset, determination, consistency, perseverance, etc. When they are completely implanted in them, they begin to grow exponentially.
