Parents of 6th - 12th

When we first have the joy of seeing that little child that the Lord has chosen to bestow upon us, our hearts are full of many feelings:  love, joy, and even an overwhelming sense of responsibility. For Christian parents, we also come face-to-face with the understanding that God, Himself, has lent this specific child to us for raising as He intends.  While we have worked diligently to encourage our children to succeed academically and have supported them in their early sports endeavors, now we find ourselves dealing with more challenging topics, and sometimes more challenging children.

By the time our children have reached this stage in life, many times in their minds they have surpassed our understanding.  We have become obsolete in our way of thinking and completely out of touch with the things of their world.  What they fail to realize is that each of us has been in this position at one time or another during our teen years and as we passed to true adulthood have learned the error of our ways.

But how do we impart that understanding to them from a Biblical perspective while tackling the challenges they face, all the while continuing to keep our direction for them in alignment with God’s Word?  We must return to Deuteronomy 6 because God did not place an age limit on His expectation.  There is comfort in knowing that no matter what stage in life we find ourselves with our children, God already knew how to get us and them through the journey successfully.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9:
“Hear, O Israel:  The Lord our God, the Lord is one.  You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.  And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.  You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.  You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.  You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”

Below are resources to continue to empower us as parents to be successful in guiding our young adults as God has provided in His Word.
