Always insist upon prompt obedience from your children. This virtue is key to a peaceful, Christian family.

DIRECTIONS

Obedience should be expected of a preschool child. When the ordinarily obedient child suddenly becomes unmanageable, the cause should be sought. It may be that he does not understand what is expected of him. If this is not the reason, then he may be ill, or unhappy about something.

The pressures of daily living may tempt you not to insist on obedience. At times, it may expedite matters to let occasion for correction slip, but this is not to be repeated often. You must have patience in demanding the desired obedience. Parents should always remember that, in matters of authority, they are acting for God, not for themselves.
