(Prov 22:6 NKJV) Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.
If we are a parent, we have a responsibility to train up our children in the way they should go. That means teaching them about the Word of God.
Therefore, we should know what the word of God says and reinforce it in their lives. That doesn't mean to give up and stop teaching them when they are (or think they are) old enough to tell us what to do.
Number one, they should never tell us what to do in our own home or anywhere else. Number two, they should have respect for our home and obey the rules that we set in our home, no matter how old they are.
No child should tell us what to do in our own home or mess up the atmosphere there. It's not allowed! Something will dominate your home; either God's Spirit or the devil's. Which one is it for you?
Take some time and give your home and your children a good evaluation and then take the necessary steps that need to be taken to make sure things are in order.
If you need to change things up, don't wait. Do it now. If you need to take a stand in some areas, don't wait. Do it now. Sometimes things get ugly before it get's pretty and the longer you wait, the worse it gets.
Get God's wisdom on how to clean up, if need be, and move forward.
