 We must learn to give the perfect balance
To teach our young ones to have goals and to seek out their talents
We must bring out the best in a child
Definitely we must stay in their ears all the while
Knowing that we can’t protect them from all of the dangers of this world
We know that we must train up a woman from the time she’s a little girl
We must teach our little boys that sensitivity is okay
That the meaning of the word doesn’t mean that he is gay
We must teach them that humility breeds respect
That each other’s hearts we have a responsibility to protect
We must train them to listen to our words
To think deeper than what we’ve shared and go beyond that which they’ve heard
We must teach them that it’s okay to be themselves
That perfection can not be bought from off any grocery shelves
We must teach them the benefits of not being materialistic
To ultimately have goals but to also be realistic
We must teach them how to ask the right questions
To let truth be the guide to all of their confessions
We must try to teach the right harmony to balance
And to not let anything stop them because it seems to be a challenge
We must teach them to listen before they speak
And to speak up for themselves and to not be weak
Truly we must lead a child in the way that they must go
We’ll pray as they get older that the lessons we taught will continually show
