When your child was born into this world, that child was just like a plain sheet of paper that needs to be written on. What have you been writing on that sheet of paper? What you are reading now is what has been written. Parents should take up the responsibility to train their children in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it.

Choose actively and early what to write into your child’s life. Whether you are writing or not, someone is writing for you. You must be deliberate and intentional about it. Do not pass your responsibility to the media, the school, the government or the church. You are the primary guardian of the child that God has given to you. Let’s stop talking about bad children and move on to good parenting.

Parenting is arguably one of the most difficult duties for parents to do. Parents should begin the journey by accepting the responsibility to start investing into their child’s life for a better tomorrow. If you accept this responsibility, you will put yourself in a better position to seek help and wisdom from God. God is able to furnish us with every wisdom to write appropriately into our child’s life.

Settle this in your heart, your child is not bad. Your child was not created bad. Every child deserves good training so that they can become the best that God has created them to be. The grace of God is always sufficient.

Start writing right today.
