Against what evil should fathers guard?

Answer

"Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged." Col. 3:21.
NOTE - Correction should never be given in anger, for anger in the parent stirs up anger in the
child. It is well to pray with a child before correcting him, and frequently mild but faithful instruction,
admonition, and prayer are all the training necessary-are, in. fact, the best training that can be given. But in
any case of perverseness, stubbornness, or wilful disobedience, the correction, whatever it may be, should
be persisted in until the child yields submissively to the will and wishes of the parent. It is best, generally,
that correction should be done in private, as this tends to preserve the self-respect of the child, a very
important element in character building. No correction or training should be violent or abusive, or given
for the purpose of breaking the will of the child, but rather to direct the will, bring it into proper subjection,
and the child to a realization of what is right and duty.
