Training Up Daughters

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
This is our plan for raising up our daughter to be a godly woman, wife, mother. We feel it is very important to teach her these things so she doesn't end up marrying the wrong man for the wrong reasons. We also believe she will need to know how to be a good wife before hand instead of learning along the way after she gets married. Marriage isn't easy work! Especially if you have no knowledge of how to go about it.

  1. We are to instruct her in Christian discernment. We intend to instruct her in a way so that she will not be naive and gullible when it comes to picking a husband.
  2. We are to teach her to be submissive to her Father. This will keep her from attracting unsavory men.
  3. We need to train her in house management skills. She should not wait until she is married to learn about cooking, cleaning, children and husbands.
  4. We will also educate her in how to be attractive without being seductive. Many girls and young women dress themselves as sex objects. If she imitates the world she will likely drive away godly men and instead will attract men who have the wrong priorities.
  5. She will be loved by us(not a difficult task). Girls that are neglected and starved for attention and affection usually seek attention from men in unbiblical ways.
These are our goals for the next eleven years or so. By then we will have ourselves a beautiful young woman on our hands.
