I need to treat all my kids the same, right? Wrong!

Posted on 1/6/2016 by Greg Yoder

While it's important to be fair, you can’t treat all of them the same. They're all different. Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go” (NKJV). “In the way he should go” means the unique way God made each one. Some of our kids are motivated by money, others by success, and still others by family influence. As parents, we need to study our kids to know how God wired them. Then, when we use all the stuff we've learned as parents, the rest of Proverbs 22:6 is going to apply. It says, “And when he is old he will not depart from it” (NKJV). In some cases, they could be really old. Don't fear. Trust.
