The language we teach our children

NO, I DON'T MEAN French, Italian, or Spanish. Have you ever heard someone say, "He doesn't speak the language" —meaning, he or she doesn't get it? The it could be anything ranging from patience, to discipline, to honesty.

Sometimes children don't understand what parents are trying to teach them. Sometimes they do and just pretend not to. How, then, are parents supposed to follow the Bible admonition to "train up a child in the way he should go" (Prov. 22:6)? As a mother of three, I know how overwhelming it can be—so much to do, such a feeling of responsibility.
