Caring for our children...

If you want children to keep their feet on the ground,
put some responsibility on their shoulders.
~Abigail Van Buren

I agree...the point is you must not turnover your responsibility (or even authority) as a parent to them - children cannot raise themselves! Prov 29:15 - 'The rod and rebuke give wisdom, But a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.' (NKJV)
Secondly, if you brought them into the world, which you did, you are responsible for providing what they need...and sometimes what they want - if you approve of it (please remember that when buying gifts for Christmas and other occassions).
Finally, children are God's heritage - so He will hold you accountable for raising them to be responsible individuals...now is a good time to start. 

Fun Fact:
Did you know that today is Universal Children's Day? The United Nations' (UN) Universal Children's Day is an occasion to promote the welfare of children and an understanding between children all over the world.* That's one of the responsibilty of parents.
