1. Teach them the greatest two commandments are to love God and other people (Matthew 22:36-40). They are to love others as they love themselves, which implies self-worth without selfishness.

2. Caution them often about the trash Satan peddles. Develop them into conscientious young people who do much of their own censoring and who will understand that most movies are unfit for Christian consumption (1 Peter 2:11).

3. Bring up the subject of sex and morality (Do not wait for them to ask or expect them to get their information elsewhere.) Start early. Be open, straightforward, and repetitious (Ephesians 5:3-5). Aim that neither you nor they will be embarrassed to discuss any aspect of it. Your guidance will give them a solid foundation to weather temptation (2 Timothy 2:22).

4. Reinforce your moral teaching (Genesis 18:19) by setting specific guidelines for dating such as "No dances or parties with drinking. No sitting as a couple in a parked car or unattended house. Be home by curfew time." Never assume a minor son or daughter is old enough, wise enough, or good enough not to need supervision (1 Corinthians 10:12).

5. Train your children to date only those who are morally upright, and urge them to plan on marrying a Christian (Matthew 6:33; 2 Corinthians 6:14-16).

6. Rear children to have respect and cherish relationships with older people (1 Peter 5:5).

7. Teach your children the virtue of work by giving them regular jobs and responsibilities, and you will rear them to be productive adults who will go through life paying their own way (1 Thessalonians 4:11-12; 2 Thessalonians 3:10). Teach them by example to be generous (2 Corinthians 9:7).
