41 MISTAKES OF CHRISTIAN PARENTS (PART 1)

Bisi Adewale

One area where you must be successful is in your parenting work. You should strive hard to raise Good, Godly and Great Children- children without blemish. No matter the level of your success, you are not successful until you have great successors as children. What is the value of accumulated wealth if you hand it over to people that will destroy it?

41 MISTAKES OF CHRISTIAN PARENTS

1) PARENTING BY ASSUMPTIONS: Lots of Christian parents are full of assumptions. Many assume their children are born-again because they are born into Christian families and that their children are in Christ because they are in church. These and many assumptions do hurt parents seriously later in life.

2) FAILURE TO LEAD THEIR CHILDREN TO CHRIST: Not leading their children to Christ is a major mistake many parents make.

3) FAILURE TO ROOT THEIR CHILDREN IN CHRIST: Leading them in Christ is not enough; rooting them in Him is the key. This you can do through regular Bible study, church attendance, good examples, and family altar and so on.

4) FAILURE TO TEACH THEIR CHILDREN FOR CHRIST: Not teaching them regularly for Christ makes them spiritual illiterates who will never have any desire for God.

5) FAILURE TO THANK GOD FOR THEIR CHILDREN: Failure to thank God on behalf of your children and show gratitude for them is a major mistake of modern parents.

6) BAD MODELING: Not modeling Christ for them is another major error.

7) ORDER IN THE MORNING, JUDGEMENT IN THE NIGHT: You give them order in the morning and judge them in the night without any love in between is a major way to raise rebellious children.

8) FAILURE TO SPEND TIME WITH THEIR CHILDREN: You don’t spend time with them. You don’t play with them. You are a mid-night parent. If they don’t see you when they are young, you won’t see them when you are old.

9) CHILD ABUSE: Child abuse is now part of modern day life. Being harsh, difficult and abusive is another major mistake.

10) FAILURE TO CREATE AN ATMOSPHERE OF LOVE AT HOME: I don’t doubt your love for your children but the mistake of most parents is the failure to create an atmosphere of love at home. Lots of parents are bullies. Their houses are like battle fields.

11) FAILURE TO GET SPECIFIC PARENTING KNOWLEDGE: Specific parenting knowledge is needed for children of different sexes and ages. Failure to do this will make you do a bad job.

12) FAILURE TO PROVIDE: Lots of parents expose their children too early in life, making them fend for themselves. This is very dangerous.

13) PROVOKING CHILDREN TO WRATH: When you fail to show love to your children, when you are too harsh on them or you fail to provide for their needs, you will provoke them to wrath and walk contrary to the Bible.

14) ANALOGUE PARENTING: The world has gone digital. Most children are digital citizens but lots of parents are still analog in nature. You can be analog and parent digital children.

15) FAILURE TO PRAY FOR THEIR CHILDREN: Prayer is one of your most important duties as a parent. You can’t afford to fail.

16) BULK PARENTING: Raising all children together and alike is a mistake. Children are different. You can produce them en-mass, but then you need to understand the uniqueness of each child to maximize your parenting work.

17) GROOMING CHILDREN FOR SIBLING RIVALRY: When you compare your children, blaming the one that is not doing well; when you show love to one over another, you are only grooming your children to battle with one another.

18) SECULAR PARENTING: Raising children without the word of God, family altar or prayer time talk less of Bible study. Meanwhile, the same children are sent to the best schools where they are taught only about evolution and worldly sex education. You will end up raising educated sinners and professional unbelievers.

19) RAISING BOYS AND GIRLS ALIKE: Boys and girls are not the same. You must not raise them the same way if you don’t want results that you will regret.

20) CALLING THEIR CHILDREN KIDS: In the original sense of it, kids are baby goats. Human children are not goats. You can have a child of God, not a kid of God. Every time kids are mentioned in the Bible, it is about a goat. They are seeds, not kids.
