To Train Up A Child
No Greater Joy Ministries
Good training is not crisis management; it is what you do before the need to discipline arises. Most parenting is accidental rather than deliberate. Imagine building a house that way. We don't need to reinvent training when there are child training principles and methods that have worked from antiquity. To neglect deliberate training is to shove your child into a sea of choices and passions without a compass.
