Train a Child

Being a parent is challenging when a child is about to make a poor decision. Many parents feel conflicted and ask, “Do I rescue my child from the consequences” or “Am I a bad parent if I don’t intervene?” Of course, any loving parent would intervene if the consequences are dangerous or life-threatening, but if the consequences are neither, then perhaps it is an opportunity for the child to experience the consequences and so learn a life lesson. The Bible teaches us to train our children and when they grow older they will not depart from those lessons (Proverbs 22:6). Arguably, it is better for children to learn some of life’s toughest lessons while under the guidance and protection of loving and Godly parents than to learn them as an adult.
