INTENTIONAL PARENTING 1

INTENTIONAL PARENTING 1

Fathers, do not provoke or irritate or fret your children [do not be hard on them or harass them], lest they become discouraged and sullen and morose and feel inferior and frustrated. [Do not break their spirit.], but rear them [tenderly] in the training and discipline and the counsel and admonition of the Lord. [Ephesians 6: 4]

In a fast changing world where basic old society values are changing and many are not sure where things are headed, what is the future of your child going to be? Will I be extreme if I say with the rate at which things are going your child or your grand child might end up being a homo sexual? Even in today’s world people are at different ends, some are struggling and trying to be better people, parents and role models while some are good examples who people would desire to emulate. The difference is not entirely in their own adulthood decisions but the greater part can be traced back to the kind of parenting they received. With this in mind can we leave the future of our children to chance? Is praying for the future of children enough to guarantee that they will grow and be good citizens? There has to be more than prayer. In addition to it there is need for intentional parenting.

Being a parent is probably the most important job we can do in our lives. NO GREATER MINISTRY!!! To parent positively we need to understand what it takes to do the job well. The more we understand about a child’s development and needs, the more we can be aware of what it takes to create healthy environments for children to thrive. Throughout human history, people have lived in small, close-knit communities, but today not all parents have relatives nearby to support them and give guidance in child raising. In some ways we intuitively know how to make good and wise decisions about parenting, but sometimes the stresses and mixed messages of the world can make it difficult. Therefore, we need to take every opportunity to learn more about what it takes to parent effectively.

God, not you, made marriage. His Spirit inhabits even the smallest details of marriage. And what does he want from marriage? Children of God, that's what. So guard the spirit of marriage within you. Don't cheat on your spouse. [Malachi 2:15-16]

Come lets share insights on parenting together on Africa day because the quality of our future societies, politicians, business people, captains of industry, leaders, educationists, economists, spiritual leaders and parents is in the quality of our parenting today.
