Total Child Protection For Parents In The Natural World (12/28)

INDEX

CHOICES IN PARENTING A  PRECIOUS CHILD

When we consider the wide and varied needs of the growing, developing child, we come to  realise that there is no quick fix solutions in providing a safe, and stimulating  environment.

Parents need to be constantly alert to practical everyday physical dangers, and likewise for spiritually minded parents, the same applies for  the invisible, and often  more constant threats.

It is a sad fact that children are in more danger from known friendly people, than they are from strangers. This can apply to any family member, and abuse of all types does occur in families. Read our helpful teaching  generational sin.

It is also an established fact that in family abuse the other spouse or siblings may chose to close their eyes or in multiple abuse an atmosphere of fear and secrecy prevails.

We will be touching on some of the problems in identifying and interpreting facts that may be related to abuse activity, though be aware that fun, excitement, challenge and doing things differently, and with a special role model, can be just a child growing up with someone special.

We must be careful how we react to this situation and having a warm, close, open relationship and mutual trust of your child is halfway to seeing any potential problems.

Assured of your love and confidence, encourage your child to share any anxieties. Above all be prepared to really listen at any time, and just be aware. 

Your child is very special to God. Trust his life to Him today
Did you know that God in His love for your child, protects him with angels if you ask him to.

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT A CHILD HAS A WARM LOVING CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS OR HER FATHER.


THE FATHER PLAYS A VITAL ROLE IN THE CHILD'S LIFE IN ESTABLISHING WITHIN THE CHILD THE SENSE OF PROTECTION, OF LOVING PROVISION AND A SENSE OF TRUST.


IT IS THROUGH THE CHILD'S OWN  HUMAN SPIRIT  THAT THIS HUMAN  RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS/ HER HUMAN FATHER ENABLES AND TRANSLATES INTO A SPIRITUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AS THEIR HEAVENLY  FATHER.

POOR FATHERING AND LACK OF GODLY FATHERING CAN HAVE THE OPPOSITE EFFECT.

This is a good example where natural parenting and spiritual parenting are able to complement and support each other, in the quest for wholeness in the child, and the knowledge and security of divine protection and provision.

Where a marriage fails, children will inevitably suffer in the break down in relationships, but separation from either parent compounds the hurt. Loss and support of a father figure is a major blow in spiritual terms to a young child.

In this age of single parenting, sometimes with different "partners", a woman may have several children of mixed parentage, and we can see  the complex difficulties weaved for those children,  in terms of identification and security.

Illegitimacy, accepted as a modern norm by man, is still listed in God's word as  sin, and unfortunately for the innocent child and his descendents, this still incurs  serious penalties.
