Wise Words for Parents

“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

    Thank You!!!! Awesome! We have recently run into a number of parents who refrain from rebuking their children reasoning that they don’t want to raise a “Pharisee” . . . and even common respect for adults isn’t the norm in even Christian homes – SAD. Thank you!

    1. Crystal,
      Sadly, we’ve run into that with other Christian families too…funny, they use the exact same word – Pharisee.

  2. HI Veronica. Rebecca here, from Renaissance.

    You wondered about a bigger Itty Bitty Dress on my blog and so I popped over here to let you know there IS one. I think it is about 3T/4T sized. After all, knowing your bloglines history, can’t guarantee you’d be back to check the comments there! hehehe

    Here is the link:

    It is a super simple design, easily modified for an even larger child-try it! 🙂

    PS. I *LOVE* that quote.

    1. Thank you, Rebecca!! 🙂 I can’t wait to try it…my daughter LOVES dresses, and I think it would be SO fun to make her one! (Can’t believe I haven’t done it yet!)

  3. Great quote and fantastic site!

  4. Great quote, excellent advice.
