Freud says that children learn the morals through punishments and rewards
This makes me think of a bouncy ball bouncing back and forth between rewards and punishments, in this way the bouncy balls are kept in the limited bounds designed for them bouncing back and forth between the walls..
But what happens… In the case of children,when they realise these limits are really artificial walls created by their parents?
In the analogy of the bouncy ball they are guaranteed to bounce way off in left field and run a muck. Enjoying the freedom without bounds and lacking foundational knowledge about why it is good to choose to stay inside the limits.
The daunting task with raising children is no less then the Lords charge, teach them sound principals and let them govern themselves. Parenting this way takes allot more effort and thought, in order to do this a parent must awaken in the child a personal awareness of their own inner conscious, of the moral code written in their minds. The skill that such a task requires is daunting indeed.
Thankfully parenting is a three way contract between the Mom the Dad and the Lord. Thankfully the Lord gives us parents personal inspiration on how to fulfil such a large stewardship
In this analogy it is easy to see that we are Gods in training.
