Our Job as Parents

Last night, we all went to Family Dinner and Game Night at Daulton and Peyton's school. It was a potluck dinner to encourage families to sit down together and have dinner, have meaningful conversation, and just spend time together. The counselor sited statistics like "children that have family dinners are less likely to experiment with drugs and alcohol, and more likely to do well in school.". What about families that pray together? I noticed at this dinner alot of people from my church or people that I know who attend other churches. Do you think there is a connection between Christian parenting and school success? I do. I've often heard in jest that folks wish kids came with an instruction manual...but they do! It's called the Bible! God gives us clear directions for raising our children. Now its up to us to follow the directions!

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

Deuteronomy 6: 5-7
