The Bible teaches that in a multitude of counselors there is safety (Proverbs 11:14). The idea of counsel is input intended to give perspective and advice. Counsel taps in to the experience one has gained in life for the purpose guidance. Many voices, generally speaking, offer their counsel. Psalm 1:1 talks about the counsel of the ungodly. That counsel gives direction that contradicts the actions and purposes of the Bible. Christian counsel, on the other hand, instructs from God’s Word and offers wisdom applied to a specific situation. “What should I do? Here is what the Bible says.”
Parent-Teacher Conferences are this week. This is an opportunity to get feedback from your child’s teacher on his progress. Sometimes, things are going well for a child academically, but not so much socially. It could be that academically one or two subjects need attention, but in specific ways. The conferences designate time for parent and teacher to discuss the progress of the child.
These conferences are required. You will receive your child’s report card at the conference. So make sure you schedule a time. If your child has multiple teachers, you only need to meet with one teacher. Thanks for the effort. It makes a difference in the training of your children.
