The crucial part of parenting involves the aspect of careful study.
Children are a gift from God that assumes deliberate time involvement.
The wisdom of Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go ..." speaks of a specific direction ( דֶּרֶךְ ) that has been divinely crafted into every child.
I remember observing my firstborn constantly veering towards clothing and fashion as early as two. It was quite challenging to navigate her world but I found respite in seeking wisdom from the LORD who claims to know her much more than I do.
As I sought to study my daughter's guided path, I found HIS lamp so sufficient and safe.
