Well, I have become a mother and for me that is now my career. I am training and teaching children every day. Yet, I often don’t think of it as something I would need to study for. It doesn’t always seem that important. But why not? If being a schoolteacher is so important that you would need to take 3-4 years to study for it, why is teaching your very own child how to live not as important? If you must train for many years to take care of people’s bodies, should we not train to take care of a child’s soul which is far more important?
It would be nice if we could go to ‘Mother’s training school’ for 3 years before we become a mother, but we can’t! However, we can make time in our busy days to learn how to teach our children better and how to be better mothers.
Our children are so important. We only have one life in which to teach them, and the time just flies by. Soon they’ll be gone.
The Bible is our instruction book. We can also learn from those who have studied the Bible on these topics and who have learned much from their own life experiences.
There is always room for improvement!
Psalm 90:12 “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”
