Where the world comes to study the Bible

Parenting

We need to look at what the Bible says about parenting:

  • Parents must teach God’s truth (Dt. 4:9; 32:46).
  • Parents must lovingly discipline children because they are immature and need guidance (Prov. 22:15; 29:15).
  • Parents should not exasperate their children (Eph. 6:4).
  • Parents’ wise decisions bring blessing to their children (Dt. 30:19-20).
  • Parents who are godly teach their children to obey (Eph. 6:1; 1 Tim. 3:4).
  • Parents who faithfully train their children can be confident that their efforts are not in vain (Prov. 22:6).
