David C. Cook Raising a Modern-Day Joseph: A Timeless Strategy for Growing Great Kids

Two clear models of children leaving home are given in the Bible - Joseph the son of Jacob and the Prodigal Son. One had been instructed about respect, wisdom and perspective and the other had not heeded his wise Father's gentle instruction. These are two real options for children, and parents need to start spiritual instruction on these and other topics when their children are young to make sure they have what it takes when that child does leave home.

Joseph, through trials not of his making, brought great honor and fame to his family's name while the prodigal son (even though eventually reconciled), through his own choices, only dishonored his Father's name during his time in the far-off city. Children are precious, and should be given every instruction to make sure that, when they are tested by the world (as they most certainly will be), they will be able to withstand whatever is thrown at them by applying simple, scriptural truths that they know to be true.
