DON’T PLAN TO RAISE GOOD CHILDREN; THESE ARE THE CHILDREN YOU SHOULD RAISE.
By Bisi Adewale
Many parents usually make efforts to raise good and well-behaved children. But that is not adequate.
A child must be more than good. Let me show you here why you must not strive to raise good children.
TYPES OF CHILDREN
Here, let me show you the three kinds of children you will see around you.
1. BAD CHILDREN
These are very bad children, and they are not doing anything to hide it. They are bad and wild; very odd and terrible.
These children usually cause great pain and agony for their parents. You see them around as school dropouts, God-haters, area boys, cultists, robbers, assassins, prostitutes, gang leaders, drug addicts, drug pushers, strippers, nudists, child abusers, criminals, porn addicts, rapists, etc.
You will need to do three major things for your child not to end up like these. I will be telling you about them later.
2. GOOD CHILDREN
These are very good and well-behaved children when their parents are there, but they are very terrible when they are at school, alone or with friends.
A pastor’s child used to behave well at home. He was involved in so many activities in the church and his parents were very happy with this. They boasted about him.
One day, his father visited him at school but was shocked to know that his child was a cultist, drug pellet, and gang leader. Some of his friends thought his dad was one of his drug clients, and they spilled a lot of beans in his presence. The boy was not in school, and it was confirmed he left school more than two weeks before his father’s visit.
This is an example of a good child. The true revelation of the child’s identity shatters the hearts of their gullible parents.
3. PROPER CHILDREN
Some experts call this kind of children, ‘children with character. These are children that are good when they are with their parents, and also good when they are alone at school or with their friends. They are not pretenders or deceivers. They are not just good for their parents to see, they have a personal relationship with God and personal conviction to follow him. They have developed a personal relationship with God and built characters that can stand the test of time and build their future.
See the way they were described in the book of Daniel 1:4
HOW TO RAISE PROPER CHILDREN
Don’t ever strive to raise a good child. Work hard to raise proper children who can stand on their own in the presence of pressure, temptation and trials.
WHAT TO DO
LOVE YOUR CHILDREN, BUT DON’T INDULGE THEM
Create an atmosphere of love at home for your children. Show love to them and let them know you love them. Never fail to discipline them when they err; there must be a balance. Do not indulge, do not bully.
GIVE PROPER TRAINING TO YOUR CHILDREN
Train your children intentionally. Don’t just raise children; don’t just do school runs; don’t just feed them… Train them.
TAKE YOUR CHILDREN TO GOD IN PRAYER
Pray for them daily and aggressively; commit their lives, souls and body into the hands of the Lord.
DON’T EVER ASSUME THAT THEY ARE DOING ACCORDING TO HOW YOU TRAINED THEM
Monitor your children. Check them, watch over them, check their school bags, check their rooms, check their phones. Every parent must be a detective. Don’t just assume they will end well because they are from a Christian Family, check them. Society might hand have put in them what you never think they can do, watch your back.
GET ADEQUATE TRAINING FOR YOURSELF
To do the task above, you won’t be able to do that by intuition, not at all. You will need to be trained and groomed; you will need to read books, listen to tapes and get yourself ready.
You see, everybody thinks they are well equipped for parenting work. Unfortunately, they are not. That is why they end up copying the errors of their parents as they raise their children.
One piece of advice I will give you is to attend the EXCELLENT PARENTS’ ACADEMY (EPA). This is a place to learn how to become an excellent parent and also, to acquire knowledge to raise exceptional great children.
