Back to the Basics: Teaching Our Children How to Court and Date

Updated: Jan 15


And we must teach our youth and young adults how to listen and receive wise counsel. Too many of them don’t get the 'ract a pe' needed to assist them to make correct decisions. Too often, it goes in one ear and out the other because they don’t respect the person giving the advice or because of how the advice is given. e; however, those folks who are polar opposite usually don’t stay long. n is any different than the previous. And because we don’t change, we expect our children to select better. Until we understand that if we don't learn from our mistakes in our mate selection, our children will not. We are the model from which our children will replicate (good or bad).


In other words, we attract who and what we are. So if we want a young person who is loving, responsible, mature, self-sufficient, nurturing, and loyal, we must BE!!


We can't coninue to raise children who are immature, irresponsible, co-dependent, spoiled, and expect to him/her attract a person who is everything that I've listed in the previous sentence. Now this is not to imply that our children will not encounter people who are fundamentally the total opposite of who they are; however, those folks who are polar opposite usually don’t stay long.


And we must teach our youth and young adults how to listen and receive wise counsel. Too many of them don’t get the 'soul food' needed to assist them make correct decisions. Too often, it goes in one ear and out the other because they don’t respect the person giving the advice or because of how the advice is given.


Every potential mate of your child should be 'interviewed' by elders in the family (men and women). Now when I say elder, I’m talking about someone who’s over a certain age and possess a high moral code of living. And their thoughts should be heavily considered in the decision to enter into a serious relationship.


Too many young adults are making the same mistakes that their parents have made regarding relationships. And it’s having a devastating effect on our family structure.

Let's get to the best traditions of our past and recreate a generation of men and women who will be committed to loving each other and producing a generation of leaders!!!
