Raising Children

   Now this is the commandment, and these are the statutes and 
   judgments which the LORD your God has commanded to teach you, 
   that you may observe them in the land which you are crossing 
   over to possess, that you may fear the LORD your God, to keep 
   all His statutes and His commandments which I command you, you 
   and your son and your grandson, all the days of your life, and 
   that your days may be prolonged. 

   And these words which I command you today shall be in your 

   You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall 
   talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the 
   way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind 
   them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets 
   between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of 
   your house and on your gates.

   when he is old, he will not depart from it. 

   Proverbs 22:15    Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; 
   but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. 

   Proverbs 23:13    Withhold not correction from the child: for 
   if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. {14} Thou 
   shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from 

   Proverbs 29:15    The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child 
   left to himself bringeth his mother to shame. 

   Proverbs 29:17    Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; 
   yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul. 

   Ephesians 6:4    And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to 
   wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the 

   Colossians 3:20    Children, obey your parents in all things: 
   for this is well pleasing unto the Lord. 

   Colossians 3:21    Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, 
   lest they be discouraged. 

   1 Timothy 3:4    One that ruleth well his own house, having his 
   children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not 
   how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church 
   of God?) 

   1 Timothy 3:12    Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, 
   ruling their children and their own houses well.
