Positively Good Productions
Sowinig blessings and life lessons to encourage, refresh, and benefit our lives.
Our children are the most precious
part of our heritage.
Children inherit their parents' DNA and are,
in some ways, a reproduction of the parents;
nonetheless, they are distinct from the mother
Who do we consider as role models
for our children?
A parent is their child’s first
teacher and should remain their
best teacher throughout life.
Parents are the most powerful role
models for children.
As parents, we should constantly strive to
improve ourselves.As observers, it not only
sets an example for our children's lives, but it
also allows us to grow ourselves.
We need to try new things and extend our horizons.
This tells our children that they should never stop
growing as people. In this life, there is always
something new to learn.
As parents and humans, we must keep in mind
that we are being watched. It's similar to being on
stage 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
For our neighbor who is having a difficult
time as a parent, we are their role model. We
are role models for the expectant woman and
our child's friend. Even future generations look
up to us.
Our acts today may teach other parents and
children how to act, how to be compassionate,
and how to be kind.
People are looking at us
and learning from us!
We must take our duty as good parents very
seriously. We must embrace the possibility that
we may be the only positive role model that our
children and other children might ever see.
We should show our children how we interact with
others and conduct ourselves. They can understand
how important it is to maintain self-control at all
It is critical for us to be good listeners as parents.
The finest leaders listen intently and speak much
less. As we open our minds and ears to what our
children are saying, they will learn to do the same.
Our children reflect what we model for them. The
most crucial component of becoming a role model
for your children is to always walk the talk.
Actions speak louder than words.
"Well done is better than well said."
If parents want their children to stay on the
straight and narrow, they must be good stable
role models themselves.
We have been given the
gift of children.
God has placed upon us the great
opportunity and duty of teaching
our children to know, love, and
According to the scriptures, what we do today
has a direct impact on the multigenerational
cycle of family traits, beliefs, and actions - for
better or worse.
Psalm 78:5-8, Exodus 20:5-6
Passing on a strong faith to our children begins
with us having a strong faith, modeling the
gospel in our relationships and our interactions
with those closest to us.
Some of us need to break negative cycles that
may have begun with our own upbringing in order
to leave a better legacy for the next generation.
God has provided us with
Parents show their children love, acceptance,
appreciation, encouragement, and direction. They
provide the most intimate setting for children's
nurturing and protection as they develop their
personalities and identities, as well as as they
mature physically, intellectually, emotionally,
Parents set boundaries, enforce rules, enforce
discipline, set limits, establish and enforce
consequences, hold children accountable for their
actions, and instill morals in them.
We provide our children the direction they need
so they can develop, grow, and mature.
We must not wait to begin teaching our children
about God. We should teach them when they are very
young that God loves them, that God created them,
and that God has a plan for their lives.
from the very moment of their birth.
God's Word serves as both
an Instruction Manual and
a Road Map for lives.
God's Word guides us through the pitfalls and
plateaus, the peaks and valleys, the highs and
lows, and the ebb and flow of raising children.
What we build on the inside of
our children is far more
significant than what we can
adorn them with on the outside.
Children tend to adopt their parents' values.
According to Proverbs 22:6, when children
learn right from wrong at home under the
nurturing, loving upbringing of their parents,
they tend to imitate their parents' beliefs. While
there are no certainties, because every child has
free will, children who love their parents'
company are significantly more likely to adopt
their parents' faith!
This is why the Bible urges parents not to
"provoke your children to anger," but rather to
"raise them in the instruction and discipline of God."
Children are a gift from God.
God gives children not as a punishment nor as a burden,
but as a blessing.
God has entrusted us with the precious job of teaching
our children. It is our obligation as parents to instill
Biblical principles in our children's belief systems.
We have been entrusted with precious souls.
God has given us the incredible opportunity
and responsibility of creating a strong Spiritual
foundation in the lives of our children.
Our children require our love and guidance.
Their lives are shaped by our characteristics,
personalities, viewpoints, and attitudes.
As adults, it is our obligation to guide children
in the right direction.
Our children require a relationship with God.
They must understand the truth of God's Word.
They must have a personal relationship with God
and be equipped and aligned to follow and serve
God for the rest of their lives.
When God is present in our lives, our children
appear to gravitate in the same direction.
Every believing parent wishes for their child
to embrace the faith and develop strong spiritual
roots. According to studies, more than half of
those raised in God-centered homes will abandon
Faith by the time they reach their adolescence.
One factor is that parents frequently "outsource"
their children's spiritual training to the church.
While a strong church is essential, God intended
the family to be the primary place where faith is
May we assist our children in distinguishing between
knowing about Jesus and genuinely following Jesus.
May we instill wisdom and discipline in our children
so that they grow into God-fearing men and women,
after God's heart.
Parents must set a good example for their children.
One of the most crucial components of parenting
is spiritual training. When parents seek God's
guidance, God will direct our efforts to teach our
children. This is not a responsibility to be taken
lightly. It will require conscious work and
Our children are growing up in a
culture that frequently exposes
them to misinformation.
An hour or two a week at church is insignificant
in comparison to the hundreds of hours spent with
media, school, and friends. It cannot compete
with the fallen nature of people, which frequently
desires to rebel against what is good, true, and
It is the responsibility of parents to provide their
children with corrected "lenses" of truth so that
they can better navigate the deceitful highways
Rather than delegating this obligation to the church
or others, it is critical for parents to teach their
We must not allow our children's values to be
established by school, community, television,
or even church organizations. Others may assist,
but parents will answer to God... they must
remain accountable to God!
Children learn by watching and mimicking the
behaviors of parents and guardians making it
easier for alienating parents to corrupt the views
and beliefs of a child. Children develop into
adults through a combination of their own inherent
nature (DNA) and nurture (parenting), but when
they are consistently bombarded by negative
feelings of hatred it an extremely difficult and
lengthy process to reverse the effects.
If we adults don’t give them the tools, they will
not connect with these people who don’t look like
them, don’t sound like them, and don’t think like
them. This failure to connect with someone who is
not like us, who is, in our minds, “other” than us, is
often dealt with in fairy tales and science fiction,
where the solutions can be graphic and cruel and the
lessons learned painful.
Our children can only learn what we teach
them in a manner that is understandable to them.
In other words, we must customize our approach
to each individual's personality, learning style,
and stage of development. Children are generally
classified into three stages, which should guide
the ways we can use for discussing our faith and
beliefs at home.
- Small children are all ears. They'll believe it
because mom or dad said it. Young children
absorb what we tell them, so this is an excellent
time to teach them fundamental Scriptures.
- About age eight to early teens, children no longer
take what we say at face value. They have
progressed beyond blind acceptance and are
ready for deeper insight.
Seize the opportunity! Take time for spiritual
talks and to instill faith and spiritual practices
into the fabric of our family.
- From early adolescence until young adulthood,
we can inspire, encourage, question, and educate.
We have no way to force feed them. We can assist
them in clearly articulating their beliefs, challenging
their thinking, and reminding them of the "basics"
learned throughout their impressionable years.
We teach our children in two
through our example and
through our words.
It is the responsibility of parents to teach their
children through example and instruction. Our
examples help to make our words more
We must be diligent and consistent in our
efforts to teach others through our actions
Children learn trust, sacrifice, service,
patience, dedication, forgiveness,
unselfishness, determination, generosity,
prayer, and love from our examples.
In all of our endeavors to teach, we should
seek Divine inspiration. Allow God to disclose
things from His heart to ours. Let us listen to
the Holy Spirit's voice for insights and teach
our children according to the Holy Spirit's
promptings. Trust, the Holy Spirit will deliver
the word to minds and hearts.
Parenting is a never-ending journey. Our influence
as parents and spiritual shapers is enormous.
If we have children, whether they are
infants or adults,
we are parents for life!
If we abandon that obligation, our children
could become a burden to both us and society.
