Here are 3 possible reasons that your daughter will make good choices.
I mean, who knows the end result of our parenting, but we can at least try to point our girls in the right direction and put them in the best possible position for success.
1. Theological belief.
2. The influence of good friends.
3. Fear of punishment/consequences.
Of course, these are guidelines and not hard and fast rules, for there are exceptions to everything.
When in doubt, stick to your one prayer.
I (Sissy) tell parents often that the reasons girls don’t get into trouble is either that (1) they have a relationship with God that keeps them from it; (2) they have a group of friends who aren’t doing it; or (3) they are afraid of being punished. Sometimes it’s all three, but many times it’s just one.
