Each adult who has a child knows that this stage of life is indeed challenging and rewarding at the same time, especially if the child grew out to be independent, responsible, productive, and caring adult and parent in their own will. Here are some important keys in raising children:
A kid needs a leader. This is someone who is responsible, strong, committed, and caring to their best and highest good. What a child does not need is being a parent to their own parent. Your child does not need to be best friends, or buddies with their parents until he or she is already an adult. Always keep in mind that a child is always a child. They are in need of a leader to direct, guide, and lead them in their early stages in life. These leader are the parents who must take a front row in raising children. In order for these children to be successful in their lives, they are in need of a strong foundation from their parents, something that can put them before their parent’s activities, careers, jobs, and relationships.
Children are also need of a structure. They are in need of a foundational guidelines. They should know what it is that they can do and what it is that they cannot. They must know that whenever they go outside their boundaries of their structures, there are going to be consequences. Whenever they stay in their boundaries, everything is copacetic.

Children need to know that every cause has its own consequence. This is part of raising children. Every action has its own reaction. A wise person needs to look at the consequences of the action that he is going to do before he is going to commit them. Cause and consequence is always a part of the law in our lives.

Whenever the children are not raised with the understanding on this basic and important law, they will be headed back to a brick wall in a high speed.

In order to stay that way, children need to be disciplined. They need to be taught to think before they act so that they can exercise judgment and self-control.
