For first-time parents, it can be overwhelming and stressful just to think that you need to take care of another human being with your own genes. You wanted to make sure everything is best and that you are doing the right thing.

You can always ask your parents, family or friends for advice on how to deal with your children. You can also rely on God's words and ask guidance on how to make sure that your child or children will grow the way Jesus wants him or her to be.

"Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it."

"See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven continually see the face of My Father who is in heaven.
