Be careful what you say to your children. Words kill, words give life

raising children

Raising children is an art.

Therefore, be cautious,

because words kill, and words give life. Proverbs 18:21

Since the tongue has power

The art has to be learned

and practiced

thus practice speaking wisely to your children

even if you keep on failing

yet keep at it

for people master what they continuously practice

Therefore, speak life to your babies

even when they are still in the womb

keep on speaking  success  pleasant-words-like-honey

and prosperity

by telling them they are the best

hence  they will make it in life

they’re beautiful

because, God made them fearfully, and wonderfully.

Tell then you love them.

for faith comes through hearing

when they continually hear good words, 

ultimately they will believe them

as a result, those words  mold them for good


Raising children 

Conversely, if they continually  hear that they are ugly

and dull

also stupid

or they’re nonsensical


 too fat, because they eat too much

therefore good for nothing

their sibling or siblings are better

or this one: you’re  nothing

will amount to nothing

it will eventually register in them

and ultimately believe it

also, act it.


Then what?

they’ll act stupid


good for nothing


and unsure of themselves

resulting in having  no sense of purpose

full of condemnation


bullying others

because thinking they don’t measure up

therefore they try to be better than everybody

they also believe they are ugly

at times rude


In raising children, remember you’re raising ‘an adult’

a mother

or father

either a teacher

or a nurse, the list is endless

therefore plant good seeds

thereby planting  good memories

plus water them seeds well

also, uproot weeds

by training

or correcting

also coaching

discipline well

try to lead by example

endeavor not to act out of anger

nor  intimidate

nor ridicule

and malice

apologize, when you need to

therefore, your children will know;

apologizing doesn’t mean one is weak

Ask God for divine strength to raise your children well

children are not a burden, but a blessing

you are raising somebody with a destiny given by God

pray for them

practice empathy and kindness


and forgiveness

and believe the best of them

above all unconditional love


In conclusion

 nature the destiny

thereby  naturing their gifts

 as you nature the child

knowing   raising children is a privilege

and children are a gift from God/parenting-children-heritage-lord/
