Are You Getting Your Child Ready for Jail, Hell, or Both
by Irma Green

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.
Are you getting your child ready for jail, hell or both? Some parents are the cause of their child's problem. Let me tell you something parents, your child is being cursed because of your actions - by what you do, how you talk and live.
What type of lifestyle does your child see you living? What type of language does he/she hear you speak? How many times a day do you curse your child, call him; her a name?
How many times a day does he/she hear you call them stupid? How often do they hear, "You get on my nerves"? "I am sick and tired of you?" How often do they hear, "you are just like your no good mother or you are just like your no good father? What you are doing is, opening the door to Satan and throwing your children right into his armes.
"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me." NOT SO!! Words do hurt. Words are like a container, and each word is filled with something. Words can either curse or bless. Words can encourage or discourage. Words can wound or make whole. Words can destroy or bring life.
For example, the words we hear in the morning can cause us to make a success of the day, or they can cause us to go through the day robbed of joy and energy.
Do you realize that the last word your child hears you say in the morning before leaving for school can affect him/her the rest of the school day?
We cannot afford to talk failure and doubt over our chuildren. When we do, those words register in their heart and mind. Eventually those words take root in them and produce negative fruit or failure in their lives.
What you say to your children is very important. If you tell a person long enough that they are no good or that they are a failure, they will eventually start living up to what you told them.
Sometimes children are told, "You are going to end up in jail", and many of them do. If people keep telling a child he's/she's no good and will never amount to anything - very soon those people will be right! WHY? Because of their words. Over a period of time, those words shaped the mind of that child and set them on a course of failure and destructkion.
Parents should be the strongest positive influence in a child's life - not peers, not teachers, or coaches, and certainly not the media, or VIDEO games.
Train up your child in the way he/she should be as a fine adult!!
