Education involves not only what you teach your child, but what you keep them from learning as well. If I am trying to teach my child addition at home and he is learning that 1 + 1 = 3 at another place, then I am accomplishing nothing. If I am trying to teach my child to act like Jesus at home and he is learning not to act like Jesus elsewhere, then I am a failure. Parents are responsible to keep evil influences away from their children. Everything your child hears and sees plays a role in the development of their character, and as long as they live under your roof, you are ultimately responsible for their training and education.
It's not easy!
Don’t squander the eternal souls of your children for the temporary crumbs of this world. Your children are your only possessions from this world that you can take to heaven with you.
That is why I am willing to invest all my time and energy into these kids.
I took some of this from this article.
Great reminder as we are in full swing after Christmas break.
