I always hear the saying that kids don’t come with a training manual. I don’t agree. The Bible is the only book I will ever need to raise my kid. Here are a few scriptures I’ve used as a guide for parenting. I pray they will be a blessing to you too.
Proverbs 22:6 ESV
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 23:13 ESV
Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you strike him with a rod, he will not die.
Colossians 3:21 ESV
Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
Proverbs 29:17 ESV
Discipline your son, and he will give you rest; he will give delight to your heart.
Proverbs 19:18 ESV
Discipline your son, for there is hope; do not set your heart on putting him to death.
1 Samuel 1:27-28 ESV
For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition that I made to him. Therefore I have lent him to the Lord. As long as he lives, he is lent to the Lord.” And he worshiped the Lord there.

Proverbs 31:27-28 ESV
She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
Deuteronomy 6:6-7 ESV
