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

raising children

Raising children is an art.

Be cautious, Words kill, words give life Proverbs 18:21

The tongue has power

choose life

speak life to your babies

even to those who are still in the womb

speak success  pleasant-words-like-honey


tell them they are the best

that they will make it in life

they’re beautiful

and you love them

for faith comes through hearing

when they continually hear good words, they will believe them

and those words  mold them for good

Conversely, if they continually  hear that they are ugly





 too fat

they eat too much

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

people with no sense of purpose

full of condemnation


bullying others

thinking they don’t measure up

are ugly

at times rude

do your part

pray for them

love on them

and excersise empathy and kindness

forgive them

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

a mother



nurse, the list is endless

thereby plant good seeds

plant good memories

water them seeds well

uproot weeds



discipline well

coach the children

try to lead by example

endevor not to act out of anger

with no intimidation


and malice

apologize, when you need to

your children will know;

apologising 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

therefore nature the destiny

and nature the gift

as you nature the child,

with the knowledge that raising children is  a privilege

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