With the state of the world lately in curbing the spread of Covid-19 virus and keeping safe, a lot of people tend to be spending more time indoors with their loved ones and their kids.
It’s not a surprise anymore to most parents as their kids display non-chalet attitudes and indiscipline which is not unconnected with their (parents )impact in their(kids) lives and their(parents )inability to train up their kids in the way they should go. It’s a pity how parents hide behind civilization to commit all manner of atrocity and nuisance all in the name of training their children. This to those who have little or no much time for their kids without have any engagement outside the home. Is it not too sad? Maybe you should see this movie ‘God calling’. It gives an imprint of a mother who leaves her little baby to pursue a lifestyle that has become an addiction.
Parenting is the act of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood. It is not gratifying a child’s want, following everyone’s belief or an avenue to control and influence their teachers who aren’t as wealthy as you are to raise your kids.
Discipline on the other hand means to study, learn, train and apply a system of standard. Discipline do not necessarily mean hitting a child at any slight mistake or punishing someone out of hatred or revenge, of course a child should be spanked and punished according to the measure of his/her offence but that does not mean the child will die or should always be spanked. Little wonder the Bible says in proverbs 29 vs 15 and 17 “The rod and reproof give wisdom but a child left to himself brings his mother to shame”.17-“Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest, yes, he shall give delight into thy soul.
Parenting and disciple are keywords that I will consider in this journey, so as to raise a family where parents will be happy for their kids over time. This will be a journey in series as this introduction will guide our focus into deeper things about parenting.
Before I conclude this series, You must have understood truly how this modern times doesn’t demand the use of force, and subjection of some kind of sorts to train children. If the truth is told, and acknowledged, we will certainly get it right. Africans have a mindset that does not add to effectively raise up a child who will stand tall in the face of times. This journey will unveil this systems and pathways.
