PARENTS, since we tend to learn best by DOING rather than Hearing or Watching, be Intentional about having your kids do as much for THEMSELVES as possible. One of our main tasks, as Parents, is to make sure our kids are prepared to exist apart from us. Teach them how to cook simple meals. Have them do laundry with you. As soon as they are old enough, open up a savings and checking account in their name, and show them how to budget. The only person you want them to be dependent on, as adults, is God.
Proverbs 22:6 ESV: Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
