Money may not be everything, but it does help to keep you in touch with your children! 

The reason many children are running away from home these days is to find the other parent! 

The way to know if a girl is starting to mature is when she stops being a Girl Guide and becomes a boy scout! 

What most children learn by doing is how to drive their parents crazy! 

Much of that TV violence occurs dragging the kids away from the set to bed. 

Summer is the season children slam the doors they left open all winter! 

The reason most parents aren't leading their children in the right way is they aren't going that way themselves! 

Anyone who thinks teenagers aren't creative has never seen one make a sandwich!

Colossians 3:20,21 "Children, obey.(original is 'listen to, so as to learn from').your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing unto the Lord. Fathers, provoke.(original is 'not to contend with them to the point of them becoming disheartened').not your children to anger.('to anger' is not in the original), lest they be discouraged."
    For children to understand just what to listen to from their parents, their parents must talk too, and thus, be involved with the development of their children. Children have such an advantage, the younger the more so. All of us have a predilection towards evil. It's just the way God set it all up for His overall great purpose for humans on this earth. It can be such an advantage to have smart parents, parents who understand how to bring up their children. They will be ideal members of society and people who are effective with others, because they understand themselves. To this end parents need to know just how to produce such ideal children -Proverbs 22:15 "Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him." Proverbs 29:15 "The rod and reproof give wisdom; but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.".(because she's the one normally home with her children).Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.".Proverbs 6:23 ".....reproofs of instruction are the way of life." Proverbs 10:1 "The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother." Proverbs 11:29  "He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind; and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart.".More good Proverbs to help you.
    It is a stupid parent indeed that leaves a child in charge of his own will. See the good advice in The Duties of Parents by J.C. Ryle. ...here

Parents are encouraged to be involved with their children in a way which enables them to experience success in endeavors important to them, circumventing the drag to become a dudhead.-Proverbs 28:19 "He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread, but he that followeth after vain persons.(goin' nowhere friends).shall have poverty enough." Proverbs 30:8,9 "Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain."
    Be involved with children in perhaps learning with them how to build a skateboard ramp. They'll see how you can learn and build something from scratch; perhaps in learning how to swim; perhaps in writing a little story; perhaps a little advice to apply when dealing with their friends. Once they've seen how you think, it's their turn. Ask them to make up a story to tell at bedtime to you. Children need to realize that they can be successful at what they attempt. They need to see that some things indeed do work, that some things are indeed worth while investing time in.
    Those leaving their children to violence, be it on TV, movies, and/or in arcade and video games are actually breeding killers, as one former top military trainer in the United States Army has proven. His article is here. His email is LtColDaveG@aol.com

Children have many fears, most of which follow the principle 'emotion follows thought' fueled by information received. 70% of the children reported that their nightmares were caused by aggressive or frightening TV shows. Maastricht University.(Netherlands).researchers found that these fears can be symptomatic of significant anxiety disorders. ....Behavior Research and Therapy 38.(2000) 217-218;.Journal of Clinical Child Psychology 2000, Volume 29, Number 1, 43-52.
    "Since 1988 the rate of violent crime against female youths has doubled, and against male youths 65%." ... Calgary Herald, December 22, 1999. Is it the food, the environment, the lack of parental influence and crime? Is it contributed to by the 'day care generation'? Perhaps all contributing factors for some.
    Children need courageous, affectionate and moral parents who understand correctly how to guide him or her, in order to bring up the child for his and her betterment; that is; so they'll have the tools of living, of coping, of managing, to carry on well themselves as they get older -Isaiah 30:21 "And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left."
    Rather than sacrificing your children to the 'video and computer game god, or to a 'dumb ass school', better to take them with you to be involved with other adults, otherwise they may end up naive-as Hezekiah.

Children are a blessing from God and the only way God has chosen to bring us from the spirit world into this physical one.
    Consider these two 4-5 year old girls sleeping in an alley in Manilla, Philippines:-Parents where? Who knows? 
    When my friend asked the cop "what are we going to do about this" and received the reply "around the other corners are a million more, I don't know, the agencies are overloaded". To these two little girls 'wanting it all' never enters their minds. Only existence, and that, for the moment. Two innocent little girls, all alone.....continue?
