By any measure my children are now adults. How does this apply to me at this stage of parenting? We have done the groundwork. To me the admonition of Proverbs,
(Pro 22:6 KJV) Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.is past tense. But I am still a parent. There is still a danger if I “hold back” (4513).
I think if we have done our foundational work our children will feel free to ask for our input when they get older. I doubt we still have the right to corporal punishment but there will always be a responsibility to share from our greater experience and hopefully, wisdom.
So? Since we don’t know what the questions will be before they are asked we cannot cram for the exam. All we can do is live in constant preparation by studying the word and living the life. Then we can trust the Holy Spirit to help us get the right answers.
