How do we protect our children?

  1. First of all I believe we must pray for our kids every day, every minute, every second, every our. And then train up a child in the way they should go. Next we need to let them know that we love them no matter what, so that they can feel like they can talk to you about anything. Let them Know that you have been in the world long enough, that there is not one situation that you have not heard or had to deal with that you can’t help them with their situation. Let them know you were a child at one time, even if time has changed from generations to gernerations. Remember If you don’t talk to them they will get it from the computer, streets, frends, etc. And last, be their Cheerleader on everything, meet their friends, be there for them, as long as you are in their corner, I believe they will make it, but you can’t be their friends because you are the mother and father.

  2. OMG, this is awesome. Thank you Deborah for your dedication and inviting God in to use your gift and talents to bless others.

  3. We need to educate them on safety. They need to pay attention to their surroundings and understand that they are the ones to watch out for themselves and others. They need to understand the importance of being prepared in any situation and know what to do to remain safe. When we are aware of our surroundings, it helps us to see what others don’t see due to having their faces in their phones. we also need to teach them to be aware of places they can go to get away from danger, ie a closet, under something, behind something, anything to be safe. And lastly we need to teach them that in today’s world, they are not safe so they need to be vigilant concerning their safety.

  4. We need to keep our children prayed up. We need to put prayer back in schools. We see the effect on our children and our schools since we took prayers out.

  5. I dont believe that there is a single answer or single approach to this issue. Below are just a few of the things we have to change:

    * Greater control over guns
    * Take mental health seriously and facilitate the life of those who are mentally challenged
    * Parental accountability
    * Put God first in the family
    * Improve school security to include school bus stops and buses

  6. We must continue to pray for and with our children. We must talk with them, but most of all listen to their thoughts and concern. Let them know that their voice matters. Keep an open relationship with our children so they know that they can talk to us about anything, even their deepest secret without being judged. Communication is our biggest defense in protecting our kids against some of the trials they will go through. Knowledge is power. Prayer is everything. Remind your children if they see something say something.

  7. We protect our kids by “[train]ing [them up in ]the way they should go; and, even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6 NIV

    When I was young, all my parents had to do was give me “that LOOK.” I knew right then that I had to get it together. They could take me anywhere and leave me with anyone without fearing a bad report when they returned.

    Parents today need to teach their kids and not try to be their friends. Kids are killing kids. They seem to have no regrets for taking someone’s life. Parents, teach your kids how to love and be respectful. That is one way to protect them from being killed by other kids in the streets. We need to cover them in prayer and cover the society they interact with each day in prayer, especially law enforcement and the adults who have authority over them when they are away from home (such as the school system).
