Children and Parents

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. (ESV)

The responsibility of parenthood; the Christian object; to bring up children in the knowledge of Christ; the nurture and admonition of the Lord; the responsibility must never be transferred to schools; practical advice from Scripture; the danger of forcing a child to a decision; teaching by example in love.
