Discipline would hopefully work through explanation and correcting actions without any spankings but in the event it doesn’t, and is appropriate, should be used. 10) Since each person is a unique creation, provide them with necessary outside support whether it is physical or mental through medical, mental or spiritual services and counseling. 1 1) Teach them the world is not a bad place but good and how to view worldly actions. 12) Limit exposure to violence through electronic playing devices and make sure only appropriate levels are available in the home. 3) Strive to set a good example of all the above. 14) Pray it all works. I would be an authoritative parent who does have the rules and guidelines set in place and adheres to them. In correction and discipline I would work with the child on their level so they understand why the correction/discipline is needed and do so with a loving spirit even if it required a spanking. Through guidance they should be able to demonstrate age specific maturity. Supporting children in their endeavors and decisions is important and will reflect love and creativity.
If they are to grow into responsible adults they must be shown through the actions of their parents, this will keep all under the same guidelines even as a parent who experiences the challenges of life. The spirituality and love would be demonstrated through the home and when challenges do arise, to handle those under guidelines as set and seek the necessary type of support needed in order to compliment this type of parenting. And, last but not least, incorporate much prayer as I am sure it is always needed and teach them to do the same as it should be part of the greater authority. Parenting Plan By Bricklayers
