Being a Christian Parent
Mark, in addition to those things that Violet has mentioned, just be a good, caring, Christian parent. Try to follow the teaching in 1 Timothy 5 (NLT) and especially 1 Timothy 5:8 (NLT)... "But those who won't care for their own relatives, especially those living in the same household, have denied what we believe. Such people are worse than unbelievers."
Set an example for your children at all times by living a Christian life and following the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Set aside some time each day to be with your kids as a family. Show them from an early age what is good in God's eyes, as found in scripture.
One of the better teachings on this subject can be found in the link below. Read it over carefully and if there are any aspects of your own life that are not in keeping with being a good Christian parent, then YOU change your ways, so your kids will see a proper example of what is expected of them. Over the years, your kids will test you and your authority over them as a parent. Show them family love and proper discipline, and do not waiver in your responsibilities as a parent. Start by using the Book of Proverbs (NLT) as a basis for your teachings to your children. I prefer the New Living Translation, for youthful understanding of the English texts.
Blessings to you.
