A disgruntled school-teacher handed in her resignation with the following comment:
“In our public schools today, the teachers are afraid of the Principals, the Principals are afraid of the board, the board members are afraid of the parents, the parents are afraid of the children, and the children are afraid of nobody.”

“You cannot control your children, you say. Then the Lord have mercy on you! It is your business to do it, and you must do it, or else you will soon find they will control you. No one knows what judgment will come from God upon those who allow sin in children to go unrebuked.” - Charles Spurgeon.
Ep 6:4 (TLB): “And now a word to you parents. Don’t keep on scolding and nagging your children, making them angry and resentful. Rather, bring them up with the loving discipline the Lord himself approves, with suggestions and godly advice.”
“Let thy child's first lesson be obedience, and the second may be what thou wilt.” - Thomas Fuller.
