The sweetness of the lips increases learning.
Proverbs 16:21

Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the Lord my God commanded me - keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of nations.
Deu. 4:5 - 6

The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
Psalms 19:8

He that doeth these things shall never be moved.
Psalms 15:15 

"No schoolroom can match the simplicity and power of the home in providing three-dimensional, firsthand education. The school, not the home, is the substitute, and its highest function is to complement the family. The family is still the social base, and must be, if our society is to survive. Let's leave no stone unturned to guarantee the fullest freedom of the home and the rights of parents to determine the education of their children."

Give the young and struggling a word of encouragement when you can.  You would not leave those plants in your window boxes without water, nor refuse to open the shutters that the sunlight might fall upon them; but you would leave some human flower to suffer from want of appreciation or the sunlight of encouragement.  There are a few hardy souls that can struggle along on stony soil --- shrubs that can wait for the dews and sunbeams --- vines that climb without kindly training; but only a few.  Utter the kind word when you can see that it is deserved. The thought that "no one cares and no one knows" blights many a bud of promise.  Be it the young artist at his easel, the young preacher at his pulpit, the workman at his bench, the boy at his mathematical problems, or your little girl at the piano, give what praise you can.

"When you lead your sons and daughters in the good way, let your words be tender and caressing in terms of discipline that wins the heart's assent."
Elijah Ben Solomon Zalman

"Man was created in the image of a Creator.  Man was created that he might create.  It is not a waste of man's time to be creative.  It is not a waste to pursue artistic or scientific pursuits in creativity, because this is what man was made to be able to do.  He was made in the image of a Creator, and given the capacity to create - on a finite level of course, needing to use the materials already created - but he is still the creature of a Creator."
Edith Schaeffer 

Happy are the parents whose lives are a true reflection of the divine, so that the promises and commands of God awaken in the child gratitude and reverence; the parents whose tenderness and justice and long-suffering of God; and who, by teaching the child to love and trust and obey them, are teaching him to love and trust and obey his father in heaven.  Parents who impart to a child such a gift have endowed him with a treasure more precious than the wealth of all the ages --- a treasure as enduring as eternity.
Ministry of Healing, page 375

"Teaching as a part of child training is not simply a matter of giving instructions to be either accepted or rejected.  Teaching provides the explanation for rules for which the child then becomes accountable.  As with any teaching that is designed to reach the objective of inculcation, the child must be required todemonstrate that he has learned the desired lesson; in other words, he mustpass the test."
