Parents have no reason to ever be embarrassed about their child’s behavior. (Stay with me) Children are capable of anything; their short comings should not surprise us.
The time when a parent should be embarrassed is when they sit and do nothing!
It is our job to train our children; that does not mean just
telling them one time. Training in and of itself infers repetition. We must teach, correct, rebuke, encourage and then repeat until a child’s default is the godly character you have instilled.
