In this season, everything is fresh, new and exciting. Even if this isn’t your first child, there will be a lot of differences that contribute to the fun, to the freshness, and, yes, even to the frustrations of this season.
In this season of parenthood, you show love to your child by training them. Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
It is the realization that your child belongs to God and you have been given the responsibility to teach them to obey and to help them understand the reality of consequences.
This is the most important season of parenting because it sets the foundation for the following seasons.
