The text “Way He Should Go” has been explained in two ways.

One, that parents should rear their children following the principles found in God’s Word. Teaching them to love, forgive, and serve others. Training them to pray and read their Bible daily and set an example for their children to follow.

Two, that each child is different, and requires different responses, training and leadership to become who God created them to be. This requires their parents reliance on God for wisdom and guidance; since God is the only one who knows what is best for each child.

And don’t forget prayer. Lot’s of prayer for our children, for us (their parents), for their future spouses, for their future decisions, for their future as a child of God, etc.
