Do you ever wish that you can push a button that programs your children to how they should behave? As parents we do program our children. We basically write the language of how we want our children to develop good characteristics and to be able to function in today's society.
Communication is very important when instructing our children. In computers there are different kinds of languages that a program is written to make that program efficient. Some programs are more com plex than others. In training our children some situations are complex. Consistent instructions and standards are instilled in raising children.
Every child is different, but communication with them should be in plain language for children to understand within their learning phase. Children do not have the maturity to face life situations as it occurs. We program instructions such as yes and no, talking to strangers, and what to do if a situation happens. There are countless numbers of things that may happen.
In raising children there are challenges and there are rewards. It is mainly at the home front where the enforcement of steering your children begins. We program in the factors of laying down a foundation in the development of our children. "All children are foolish, but firm correction will make them change" (Proverbs 22:15 C.E.V.). "Raise them properly. Teach them and instruct them about the Lord" (Ephesians 6:2-4 C.E.V.).
As parents we should display good examples, be a mentor by living a Godly life, love, listen, and communicate that can be program as instructions in raising children.
