Total Child Protection For Parents
In The Natural World (23/28)

INDEX

PROTECT YOUR WHOLE CHILD

Making your own protection plan for your children declares your full commitment to them, accepting full responsibility for their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual welfare.

PHYSICAL CARE

Often we may see this as the natural part of parenting.

We strive to see that all their physical needs are met; they are kept clothed, clean, fed and generally cared for. Where finances are in plentiful supply, this is generally accepted as being fairly routine with little hassle. Where money is short, this physical aspect of caring can, but not always, cause some stress in this essential provision.

Remember whatever and how much, or how little you are able to provide for your child, just do it all in a spirit of love. Material possessions may appear important, but are in fact probably rated the lowest priority, provided you have sufficient to meet their needs.

What is important is your time, your love, your company and loving parents in a secure home.

CARE OF THE CHILD'S SOUL  AND SPIRIT

Those parts you can not see, except in the outworking in behaviour, demeanour and creativity in your child.

It is important to give as much attention and care, or even more to these aspects of your provision. 

They need to be nurtured, fed, protected and encouraged to avoid incalculable damage as the child develops.

THE MIND OF A CHILD

Remember, what the child listens to, watches and experiences must effect his mind.

Watch his viewing habits, the company he keeps and most importantly, please note, he is watching and listening to you more than anybody else.

THE EMOTIONS OF A CHILD

That part most sensitive to acceptance and belonging.
This aspect needs nurturing at all times and in all places.
Be aware of the impact of others in this aspect of his life.
Be positive about your child and impart this to him in love.
Encourage in mistakes and forgive when he is in trouble.
Comfort him and allow him to cry if he wants.
Remember, nurturing now will pay dividends in his life.

THE CHILD'S WILL

This is your individual child with his own will.
Good parenting generally keeps this in line with yours. To try and break his will is an abuse, so don't try, you will fail or regret it.

THE CHILD'S SPIRIT

The very essence of your child and the most precious.
It is often the most neglected.
This is the eternal driving force for good or evil.
It is prized by Satan, and he seeks to make it captive.

Every good captain makes up a battle plan and as disciple's of Jesus we are in constant battle with the enemy. If not, have we walked a little off the narrow road? We need to engage the enemy pro-actively by doing and trusting God's Word and looking at the priorities we hold based on the above. Then settle prayerfully on your action plan to win.
