Billy Graham
I missed the joy of seeing our children grow and change. I thank God for watching over them during those years.
Billy Graham
Love your children—and let them know you love them. Children who experience love find it far easier to believe God loves them.
Billy Graham
God gave us our children so we could prepare them to become adults.
Billy Graham
Parents need much wisdom in relating to their grown children—and much prayer. Children likewise have much to learn about relating to their parents as the years pass.
Billy Graham
If our children grow up with no understanding of right and wrong . . .no desire to live with integrity . . . no faith in God . . .their souls will be impoverished and they will miss life’s highest good.
Billy Graham
If a child is to survive, he or she must know the rules of safety. If he is to be healthy, he must know the rules of health. If he is to drive a car, he must know the rules of the road. If he is to become a ball player, he must learn the rules of the game. And, contrary to popular thinking, children appreciate rules.
Billy Graham
By the 1960s the United States had a new ruling class—the teenager!
Billy Graham
Before the seventeenth century, a child passed directly into the adult world between the ages of five and seven . . . then came the industrial revolution . . .so the child-centered home was born.
Billy Graham
Our lives speak loudly to those around us, especially the children in our home.
Billy Graham
Children will learn far more by watching than by just listening.
Billy Graham
Someday your children will leave; you can’t hold on to them or control them forever, nor should you.
Billy Graham
There is always the exceptional child, but the average tells us that the child is largely what the home has made him.
Billy Graham
Truth is easier for a child to handle than evasiveness.
Billy Graham
The television, iPod, and Internet have trespassed upon the innocence of America’s children, while preoccupied mothers and dispassionate fathers stare aghast wondering what went wrong. They don’t stop to think of their own contributions to the persuasions influencing their children. After all, where do kids as young as elementary age get money to rent rock videos and the latest rap DVDs?
Billy Graham
The Bible warns [parents] against extremes in dealing with our adult children. It tells us to avoid trying to control [them] once they become adults. When children become independent, a major transition takes place: They are no longer under our authority.
Billy Graham
One of life’s mysteries is why two children growing up in the same home sometimes take radically different paths—one following Christ, the other rebellious and scornful. Yet it happens.
Billy Graham
One of the worst things we can do is allow our children to grow up thinking they don’t need to keep any rules. A spoiled child becomes a spoiled adult.
Billy Graham
To injure, ignore, disrespect, and violate the innocence of a child are among the greatest evils known to man.
Billy Graham
Many children today are growing up without discipline. As they become adults and the discipline of job or family demands are placed upon them, they do not know how to cope . . .children need discipline to be useful members of society. Likewise, God’s children need discipline to be useful members of His family.
Billy Graham
It may shock some parents to learn that we don’t own our children. God has given them to us in trust . . . however, God may transfer our children to His home at any time.
