All parents are concerned about teaching their children the character traits that will help them to live successful and productive lives. This means that all parents are in fact home educators, whether their children are educated academically at home or in a more traditional school environment. I have recognized over the years that there are two equally important components to both of these forms of learning, be it academic education or character training—the teacher and the learner, i.e., the parent and the child.
Most parents are motivated, at least initially, to teach their children. They have a vision for helping their children to be successful in life. They have the prerequisite love and concern for their children. If the teaching is academic, they work diligently to acquire educational methods and materials to be as competent as possible in their role as teacher. However, the children are often not nearly as well equipped. Many times they are not enthusiastic learners but reluctant ones, and the educational process is severely hindered. How can the parent insure that their child is ready to learn? The Bible has the answers for parents to be able to transform their child's resistance to education into eagerness.
Let us help you discover these biblical principles and then how to apply them to your own family.
