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).
