A Back-to-School Thought
I think we all agree that reading, writing, and arithmetic should be an essential part of every child’s schooling. But we also need to remember that childhood is when they are developing their characters.
Will they learn to persevere, or give up easy. Will they be responsible and take care of those around them, or just do what’s fun and expect others to take care of them. Are they learning to control their temper and work out disagreements, or just how to manipulate others to get their own way.
Our job as mothers isn’t just to feed and clothe our children, or even teach them to read and write. We need to be intentional in how we train our children, because the character they have by the time they reach their teens is what they will default to the rest of their lives.
With God’s help, we can break the bad habits we have as adults and learn to be more like Him. But it is way easier to learn good character when you are young.
