It’s impossible to teach your children anything if you don’t first have their attention. With children though, oftentimes, you can’t have their attention until they are sure they have yours.
Think through the last week, the last month, or even the last year. When was the longest time recently that your children had your full attention? Think about what that time was:
What did you do: ____________
What did you talk about: ____________
It is very interesting that the actual last verse of the Old Testament speaks to fathers giving their children attention.
