Training continues even after summer break begins



Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6

    Last day of school cheers are going on all around Atlanta. School may be out for the summer, but teaching and training continues. How will your child handle the summer break?  If your child is ill-equipped to deal with the world’s temptations lurking about, a multitude of troubles could arise later on.
    A great way to prepare your child for the summer ahead is to set boundaries and communicate your expectations and consequences clearly. 
    For instance, if your child stays home alone, remind them of the rules and what is and what is not permitted. If your child does not hear you say what you expect, chances are the practice will not result either.
    Learning to meet parental expectations will help children understand the importance of following directions and consequences that result from not meeting those expectations. As a perk, this type of training also helps prepare them for employment as adults.
    Discerning appropriate friendships will enhance your child’s summer experiences too. If your child has a negatively influential friend, the choice is yours to help train the friend or help your child chose positive friends.
     It’s never too late to train a child in the way they should go. Every opportunity should be used to help them make the best possible choices with or without supervision.

    This seems like common sense but its true that some people will just go on and on day to day thinking their child will know what to do. Better to be safe than sorry.

    It is sad that too many parents need to be reminded about this. My oldest son graduates in June from high school and is what I would call a truly awesome kid. I followed this exact advice and things turned out pretty good! Great article.
