    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

The Duty Of Parents

James Wilson

Quoting James Wilson, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States and a signer of the United States Declaration of Independence; he was one of the six original justices appointed by George Washington to the Supreme Court of the United States:

“It is the duty of parents to maintain their children decently, and according to their circumstances; to protect them according to the dictates of prudence; and to educate them according to the suggestions of a judicious and zealous regard for their usefulness, their respectability and happiness.”

  1. How times have changed! We are attempting homeschooling this year (our son’s only 4). He is so hyper not sure how well he’d do in a classroom and we want to really train him well.
    ps-Here’s a good parenting resource for any moms anticipating the Halloween candy season ahead – it’s called the Mom’s Guide to Caring for Little Teeth (http://www.1dental.com/moms-guide/).


    • We have a 4 year old grandson. He is very movement-oriented. He is attending a church pre-school this year in order to help him adjust to Kindergarten next year. Since he is so movement-oriented, we have recently enrolled him in a marshal arts class. This program emphasizes self-discipline, respect for others, citizenship, developing motor skills control, and listening skills.

      I also recommend the STRONG WILLED CHILD by James Dobson.

      Thanks for sharing!
