Training up a child

Many of you struggle with children, especially boys, who know what to do but just don't get it done. It is a problem in my household, and many of the usual suspects (too much TV and video games) just aren't present. I have been walking through Proverbs with my oldest son, and doing so has given us time together. It also opens the door to discussions on laziness, wisdom, self discipline and others. It has made a positive effect on him, and I plan to continue with Ecclesiastes. If it was good enough for Solomon to write down and to be included in the Cannon, then it is good enough to teach your children wisdom. They might very well be the only kids in the area with that training. Enjoy!
