3 Stages in a child’s growth
Under 7 years This is the age where a child needs to learn about God; to learn to obey and respect others; to learn godly values and selfcontrol. The time to learn good habits and manners.
8 to 12 years Children at this stage want to understand the legal structure of life, what they can and cannot do, why, reasons behind decisions, and rules of life.
13 years up Children will now live what they have learnt. If they have learnt the wrong thing, then they need to be corrected and unlearn.
These different stages require different programs and strategies in training the children. If they have not learnt the right lesson at the respective phase, their growth is hampered and less effective.
