Parenting Quote

Common Scenario:

New Parent to Veteran Parents: "Wow! You're children are so well-behaved! And they like each other! And they respect and obey you! You are so lucky!"

Veteran Parents: "Well, it isn't really 'luck.' We teach them, train them, discipline them, love them, nurture them, shelter them, give them proper sleep, diet, exercise and nutrition. We cut out sugar, caffeine, and harmful television, internet and video game use. We demonstrate godly character and a good work ethic. We saturate them in a Spirit-filled home environment and soak their minds in God's Word. We maintain a strong, united marriage. We spend every minute we can with them and give them an education from a thoroughly Biblical worldview. It's a lot of hard work, but it's worth it!"

New Parent: "Like I said, 'You sure are lucky!'" -- Family Renewal LLC
