The Bible declares that children are a precious gift. Parents burst with joy as they look down upon their new born bundle of joy. As parents we sacrifice for our children. The most passive mother will become a roaring, leaping lion when someone endangers her child. Yet when marriages fail these same loving parents destroy their children by putting them in the middle of their fight.
Jesus asked the question; what parent would give their child a stone when their child asked for nurishment? Today I ask the question of you parents. Which one of you would intentionally give your child Poison?
Most of you would look at me as if I'd lost my mind. You would say "I would never hurt my precious baby. " Well, take another look, think just a little deeper. Every time speak negatively to them about their other parent you are feeding them poison. Everytime you refuse to allow your child to spend time with their other parent without GOOD cause. Everytime you have a blown out argument in front of your child; you are giving them toxic information or placing them in a toxic environment. Yes the other parent may have bad qualities. Your relationship may have crumbled to the point where you can not even speak to each other. But keep your child out of the middle of the mess. When they grow older they will be able to assess and determine the character of both of their parents. They will develop their own opinions based upon how you conducted yourself not be what you've said.
Most parents would not give your child an adult dosage of medication. We understand that the high dosage of medication would be toxic to our child. But this same parent will sit down and discuss all of the problems they are having with the other parent. The same parent will tell their child all of the other parent's faults and secrets. This parent will become angry when their child shows love for the other parent and will make sure their child understands why the other parent is not worthy of love. TOXIC! You are poisoning youry child by giving your child a dose of information his or her body and mind is not capable of absorbing. If papa was a rolling stone. If mama was a rattle snake. Your children will figure that out as they grow older and they can better handle it. Please stop poisoning your children! Words CAN harm and they are TOXIC!!!
