“Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 22:6

Comment:

A child, who is properly brought up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, will in most cases be modest and upright in character as he or she grows up into adulthood. Parents should endeavour to make use of all available scriptural standards to bring up their children which includes counseling, attendance to children's meeting and other study meetings of the Church. Corrective measure including the use of rod could also be applied when necessary as a measure of discipline for the child to bring him or her back to the path of rectitude. Because as it is written that foolishness is bound in the heart of a child but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. – Proverbs 22:15; 3:11.

The following texts from the proverbs of King Solomon.are instructions to children to obey their parents. “A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother.” (Proverbs 10:1) “A fool despiseth his father's instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.” “A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish man despiseth his mother.” - Proverbs 15:5, 20.
