Another Thought from "Raising Awesome Kids in Troubled Times."
Love the Lord Your God. Deuteronomy 6:5
"Training flows from a relationship of love with a personal God. Training emphasizes a life that pleases God, not simply conformity to a standard. If we teach our kids the Bible with a "do it or else" mentality, we have missed the point and will live to see our children walk away from God. The Bible should not be opened up only when we want some extra authority to "straighten out" a child; instead, it should be used continually to teach kids about who God is and about his great plan for their lives."
