Teach Your Children? - How do You Teach them in this World of Deceit and Lack of Authority? -How can you Really Build their Self-Esteem? - Toys? Games? Clothes? NO, of course not, these fade and then the excitement is gone, then you have to buy more things? That only teaches them money buys happiness and self-esteem...it does not! What Does the Bible Teach on How to help Your Children? These Bible stories are written in simple language to help parents teach their children valuable Bible lessons. They are designed for parents to read together with their children. Teaching Respect for Authority “Today’s parents demand so little respect for authority that we actually may be lowering our children’s self-esteem,” says a report in The Toronto Star. “Knowing their limits actually appeals to children’s need for predictability and security—which in turn helps them feel higher self-esteem,” notes behavior specialist Ronald Morrish. “It’s children with no sense of rules and responsibility who grow up feeling less secure and confident.” He adds: “I see 6-year-olds who set their own bedtime. I see 3-year-olds whose mothers try to persuade them not to misbehave by explaining how it makes Mommy feel.” Children need to learn to comply with family rules, and the idea that they naturally become less cooperative as they get older is wrong, says Morrish. “We expect children to build their academic knowledge cumulatively each year. So why don’t we also expect kids’ behaviour to improve each year?” he asks. “If you won’t do what it takes to get a toddler to pick up a toy, you won’t have a teenager who makes his curfew.” Raising Well-Adjusted Children—How? “Children learn self-respect and self-control by receiving both love and discipline from parents,” says a report in The Gazette, a Montreal, Canada, newspaper. What does this involve? According to Montreal clinical psychologist Constance Lalinec, it is vital to set clear limits on child behavior. Chores for Children “Today’s time-pressed parents are laid back when it comes to having their children help around the house,” reports The Toronto Star. Although chores “will never be a top priority for kids,” says Jane Nelsen, author of Positive Discipline, such tasks “build self-reliance and self-esteem.” Responsible parents try to help their children develop spiritual qualities that supply them with the inner strength they need to withstand damaging peer pressure. “We put forth earnest effort to help our children build self-esteem,” explains one father, “so that they will not find it necessary to have the approval of their peers. If being like other children is not important to them, they will find it easier to say no when they are supposed to say no.” To teach his children how to handle difficult situations, this parent makes time for his family to engage in role-playing, actually acting out difficult situations that could arise and demonstrating ways to cope with them. Be a supportive parent, and help your child develop self-assurance." (Proverbs 22:6) . .Train a boy in the way he should go; Even when he grows old he will not depart from it." (Ephesians 6:1-4) Children, be obedient to your parents in union with the Lord, for this is righteous. “Honor your father and your mother” is the first command with a promise: “That it may go well with you and you may remain a long time on the earth.” And fathers, do not be irritating your children, but go on bringing them up in the discipline and admonition of Jehovah."
