Duties of Parents – 17 Points – JC Ryle

Great list of points on how to train your kids [via A Faith to Live By blog]:

Train well for this life, and train well for the life to come; train well for earth, and train well for heaven; train them for God, train them for Christ, and train them for eternity. Amen.’ So concludes JC Ryle’s sermon Duties of Parents based on Proverbs 22:6 ‘Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.’

The sermon is a must read for all who are parents or god-parents and for all who train or teach children at church and for all who wish to pray for parents in their responsibilities. But if you want the headings for all 17 points of this sermon then here is how JC Ryle urges you to train your children rightly:

1.train them in the way they should go, and not in the way that they would

2. train up your child with all tenderness, affection, and patience

3. train your children with an abiding persuasion on your mind that much depends upon you
