ABCs of Christian Parenting
H - Hug your child 10 times every day, especially when he is unlovable.  A warm touch can erase even the largest strain in a relationship

And He took the children in His arms, put His hands on them and blessed them.  Mark 10:16

J- Join in agreement with your spouse, and stand firm together on rules, expectations, and discipline.

Children obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.    Ephesians 6:1

K - Keep commitments you make outside your home, so your child can observe as you model responsibility.

Above all, my brothers, do not swear - not by heaven or by earth or by anything else.  Let your "Yes" be yes, and your "No" no or you will be condemned.    James 5:12

L - Live each day to the fullest, appreciating the beauty of God's world and the hope of your faith, instead of hurrying through the day.

Whatever is lovely . . . think about such things.     Philippians 4:8

M - Manage aspects of your child's life that could lead to stress, such as too much activity or screen time or inappropriate freedoms.

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.  When I became a man, I put childish things behind me.     i Corinthians 13:11

N - Nurture your child lovingly so he can experience God through your example.

How good and pleased is it when brothers live together in unity.     Psalm 153:1

ABCs of Christian Parenting

A - Affirm your child every day as a gift from God, no matter what yesterday's problems were.

If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him!        Matthew 7:11

B - Build upon your child's talents, seeking to discover God's plan for him.

To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability.     Matthew 25:15

C - Communicate with your child in a way that glorifies Christ, always asking before speaking, "Would I say this to a friend?"

Glory to God in the highest.     Luke 2:14

D - Dedicate yourself to the body of Christ through commitment to a congregation, regular worship attendance, Bible study, prayer, and service.

Then David said to the whole assembly, "Praise the Lord your God" of their fathers; they bowed low and fell prostrate before the Lord and the king.     1 Chronicles 29:20

E - Exercise self control when you're angry, committing your feelings to the Lord rather than using them against your child.

"In your anger, do not sin" : Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.     Ephesians 4: 26

F - Forgive your child's wrongdoing as the Lord forgives you, and start over together with God's grace and love.

Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.     Matthew 6:12

G - Give your child everything she needs instead of everything she wants, even if you have to say no sometimes.

Your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.     Matthew 6:8
