We tell our girls to treat their brothers with respect, not to nag etc. We explain that we want them to KNOW what a godly woman looks like and to expect women to treat them accordingly.
We tell our boys to act like gentlemen...to treat their sisters with gentleness and kindness...so that they KNOW how a godly young man should treat them. I have been known to say, "I don't want your sister to think it is o.k. for men to treat her like dirt."
My mini me came down the stairs this evening, and said, "Mom, when your told me this a.m. to come down and help clean up, it made me feel like my husband should treat me like dirt."
Don't tell me that girl can't reason. ::snort:: We talked about the fact that godly wives take care of their responsibilities.
Living all of life before the face of God...
