I. Fear God - Children need to see the fear of God in you, that they may know to fear Him also.
II. Study His Word and pray - if children see you study and pray they may be inclined to study and pray also.
III. Stand For Truth - The world is confused and lost, your children deserve to know the Truth.
IV. Love Your Wife - Children will never forget how daddy treated mommy.
V. Love your Children - Provide, protect, promote, teach, and bless them.
VI. Love your children enough to admit when you're wrong - You're the example, teacher, leader.
VII. Stand your ground when you know you are right - Be firm but not harsh.
VIII. Pray for your children daily - your prayers work when you intercede for them.
IX. Reward children for doing well - it's a source of encouragement, affirmation, and incentive.
X. Discipline children for doing wrong - if you don't, law enforcement will!
"Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction that comes from the Lord. (Eph. 6:4 NLT)."
