"Thank God our children are not like me as a child" said my husband the other day.

Why? you may be wondering.

I had left some US dollars sitting on the dresser in our bedroom for about a week in preparation for a trip to a place that required that currency. He then proceeded to recount his childhood experiences of "taking" his mother's money from her small shop without permission.

"Taking" is a sugarcoated word for stealing especially when we lay claim to the fact that since it belongs to our parents then it's our property. Hence a habit of stealing gains ground in the heart and extends outside of the home.

As humans, everyone is bound to make some mistakes they have to learn from as that is part of growth.

The best we can do for our children is to keep praying and training them so they won't make mistakes that will leave irreparable damage to their lives. A child left undisciplined is like a train with failed brakes, the end result will be distruction.

Here are three important things to keep in mind as you navigate the journey of parenting:

-Be a present and involved parent and adjust to their seasonal growth's needs.

-Do not sweep red flags under the carpet; address it firmly and with compassion.

-Never stop praying and encouraging your child, giving up on them is not a healthy option.

Remember you have been graced to raise that child well.
