Deuteronomy 6:4-16
New Living Translation

4 "Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD alone.
5 And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength.
6 And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands I am giving you today.
7 Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are away on a journey, when you are lying down and when you are getting up again.
8 Tie them to your hands as a reminder, and wear them on your forehead.
9 Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
10 "The LORD your God will soon bring you into the land he swore to give your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It is a land filled with large, prosperous cities that you did not build.
11 The houses will be richly stocked with goods you did not produce. You will draw water from cisterns you did not dig, and you will eat from vineyards and olive trees you did not plant. When you have eaten your fill in this land,
12 be careful not to forget the LORD, who rescued you from slavery in the land of Egypt.
13 You must fear the LORD your God and serve him. When you take an oath, you must use only his name.
14 "You must not worship any of the gods of neighboring nations,
15 for the LORD your God, who lives among you, is a jealous God. His anger will flare up against you and wipe you from the face of the earth.
16 Do not test the LORD your God as you did when you complained at Massah.

These verses give great instruction on how to teach our children:

    Verse 4 -- Hear

    Verse 5 -- Love

    Verse 6 -- Get the Word to your heart

    Verse 7 -- Repeat over and over -or- Impress*

    Verse 12 -- Don't forget

    Verse 13 -- Fear

In the easy times the fear of God will restrain your family from pride and presumtion.

*Impress in this verse means to find your way of teaching the kids so they will remember. This would also include finding out your children's Learning Styles and doing things in a way that will "fit" them.

The object of teaching a child is to enable him to get along without a teacher.
