The Joys and Sorrows of Parenting

10:1 The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son makes a glad father, but a foolish son is a sorrow to his mother.

15:20 A wise son makes a glad father, but a foolish man despises his mother.

17:25 A foolish son is a grief to his father and bitterness to her who bore him.

23:15 My son, if your heart is wise, my heart too will be glad.

23:16 My inmost being[u] will exult when your lips speak what is right.

23:24 The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice; he who fathers a wise son will be glad in him.

27:11 Be wise, my son, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him who reproaches me.

29:3 He who loves wisdom makes his father glad, but a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth.

Honoring and Obeying Your Parents

19:26 He who does violence to his father and chases away his mother is a son who brings shame and reproach.

20:20 If one curses his father or his mother, his lamp will be put out in utter darkness.

23:22 Listen to your father who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old.

23:25 Let your father and mother be glad; let her who bore you rejoice.

28:24 Whoever robs his father or his mother and says, “That is no transgression,” is a companion to a man who destroys.

17:6 Grandchildren are the crown of the aged, and the glory of children is their fathers.

27:8 Like a bird that strays from its nest is a man who strays from his home.

Guiding and Disciplining Your Children

19:18 Discipline your son, for there is hope; do not set your heart on putting him to death.

22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

22:15 Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline drives it far from him.

23:13 Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you strike him with a rod, he will not die.

23:14 If you strike him with the rod, you will save his soul from Sheol.

29:15 The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.

29:17 Discipline your son, and he will give you rest; he will give delight to your heart.
