“Train up a child in the way he should go (and in keeping with his individual gift or bent), and when he is old he will not depart from it.” – Prov. 22: 6 AMP
It is comforting to know that God has created your child with his or her specific personality and temperament, uniquely woven in the mother’s womb, equipped with everything your child will need to fulfill his or her purpose and destiny in life.
Every temperament has a unique set of strengths, gifting, career aptitudes, abilities and even spiritual gifts. Learn to delight in your child’s strengths, and help them to overcome their weaknesses and to develop in the areas that they are not naturally gifted or strong, growing your child’s coping skills and personality.
Above all, build your child’s character, help your child to see who they are in Christ.

Your children are not
They come through you
but not from you.
And though they are with you
yet they belong not to you.
You are the bows from which
your children as living arrows
are send forth.
The Archer sees
the Mark upon the path
of the infinite,
and He bends you with
His might that His arrows
may go swift and far.
