We live in a world where kids are likely to be influenced by the behavior of their peers, society, and social media. However, it is imperative for parents, especially mothers, to bring up their children in the way of the Lord.
While this can prove to be a daunting task, there are some strategies that Godly women can use to train their kids.
Teach them to love God
No child is too small to learn about God. Even though it looks like they don’t understand what you’re saying, it is important to teach them early about God’s love.
When a child comes to understand God’s love, they can replicate this in other aspects of their lives. Moreso, it would help them begin their Christian journey early.
Teach them to respect and value people
You need to teach kids about the essence of respecting people and not looking down on anyone. Even though they are privileged, they need to realize that all fingers are not equal. Their privilege comes with a great deal of responsibility which includes valuing other people.
When your child does something wrong, it is important not to overlook it. If you ignore their shortcomings, they might think that you are comfortable with their inactions. Hence, they are likely to repeat their mistakes.
You need to correct your child in love. Let them understand their inactions and make them assure you never to repeat them.
Teach them to communicate
Children are likely to draw closer to parents who are great at communicating. Being a Godly mother who wants to raise her kids the right way demands that you keep the lines of communication open.
Don’t be quick to judge or chastise them. Understand that they are kids, and they have lots of things to learn. When they become comfortable talking to you, it becomes easy for you to point them in the right direction.
