Teach and Train

today's reading.
Proverbs 22:6; Deuteronomy 6:1-9  Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it...

think about it.
A parent is to train a child "in the way he should go," so what do you learn about that "way" in Deuteronomy 6:1-9? List the different ways used to teach and train a child (6:6-9). If the best lesson you could teach your child was Deuteronomy 6:5, how would that influence other aspects of his or her life? How would it impact yours?

My parents were diligent about making sure our family was in church and that I was at Awana and youth group as I got older. I learned a lot about God and His statutes and rules at church. But as I look back, I learned even more at home through my parents' example. Deuteronomy 6:7 tells us straight up to teach God's statutes and rules diligently to our children.

So what are some different ways to do that? How did your parents teach and train you? What are you doing with your children or grandchildren? And for those of us who aren't parents, what can we do to help with training up and teaching children and youth? Tami W.
